Speaking & Masterclasses
Stories are not only entertaining, they show your values in action and communicate your culture. They are a statement of who you are and why you do the things you do. Stories are the best way to educate people and share wisdom
“Your keynote was really wonderful and many participants came to us to express their appreciation and get your contacts. Certain participants had already other trainings on storytelling but still confirm that yours is the most impactful and vivid.”
Yuwei KAN Director, Editorial, Digital and Internal Communications | Air Liquide Group
I’ve been working with businesses and organisations for over 20 years. But crucially I still work successfully in the creative industries. I’m a genuine story insider which means my perspective and understanding is very different from a business school graduate who has sat a module in the power of storytelling. My techniques are very practical and gleaned from writing or telling stories in front of audiences all over the world.
Stories are 14 times more memorable than data according to a Harvard study which means you will soon forget this piece of data. You are more likely to remember that a top Mossad agent was once asked to track me down or that I once woke up in a clinic in Ecuador with no memory of how I got there. In fact, I couldn’t remember anything from the previous year. These stories are true and now that I’ve hooked you there’s only one way to find out what actually happened next.

It’s the biggest conference of the year, it’s costing a fortune and the top 200 are flying in. You’re under pressure from the CEO to make it great. It’s your event and your job is at stake. Ideally you’d like to have a speaker who has spent their whole life telling stories, who knows how to work a crowd - not a comedian or clown – but someone who has 20 years of experience working in business and can actually give this high-powered audience new insights in to how storytelling works as a leadership tool.
To discuss a variety of keynote topics;
Storytelling and Presentation Masterclasses
(Virtual or live)
Your team is full of innovative and creative scientists and engineers but no one else in the business understands them. Put them on a stage and they spit data and graphs. Put them in front of a customer and they don’t know how to tell stories of the amazing things they do. You want to organize a workshop to train them.
Teambuilding and Storytelling Workshops
You’re in a process of change, you’ve got a new team of managers. Not only do you have to build a shared narrative and become powerful communicators, but you also have to create good energy and build the team. You’d love to find fun, innovative ways to bring them together but also get them sharing stories and building skills. Is there someone out there who can do all those things?
One to One
(Virtual or live)
“It’s 3pm you’re at a conference. The audience have sat through 6 hours of deathly powerpoint. Half of them are jetlagged and drifting off and the other half have eaten too much in the hotel buffet at lunch and need the loo. And now it’s your turn to speak. You’re a senior leader; your message is vital. You want to engage, motivate and excite them with your ideas and entertain them on the way. But how are you going to win them over?”
I will teach you how to communicate using stories, how to build a great presentation and how to deliver it so that people listen and remember your message.
When do you need stories
“Not only did Danny manage to keep our audience captivated throughout the whole day thanks to his humour, wit and great storytelling skills, he also played a crucial role in helping us shape and organise our event.”
