Who I’ve Worked With
What will change when you get your ideas across clearly?
Most business people would never call themselves storytellers, because “storytelling” still has the connotation of something made up or false. But the stories we tell about our ideas, our work and our organization condition the way that we are received. Finding the right story helps others get clear on our mission. It expresses our vision and purpose. It affects how others perceive our value. It can be the difference between no and yes.
As storytelling consultants, we work directly with CEOs and executive teams to optimize the strategic narratives they tell about their work. Unlike a traditional communications agency, we don’t make up a story and pitch it to you. Instead, we work alongside you as a guide, drawing a powerful narrative out of you and supporting your team as you develop alignment. In the process, we teach you the tactics, methodologies and mindsets of storytellers, so that you can re-write your story when the context, market or strategy changes.
You’ll find that storytelling consulting is a deep change process. We help our clients infuse their real story with clarity and emotional depth. Our work is at the intersection of strategy, innovation, design, communications, relationship intelligence and leadership development. It’s always insightful. It can be therapeutic. And it works.

How Storytelling Consulting Works
