Strategy & Story

Unwittingly eclectic, innately curious, I am a narratologist. 

I help people design stronger narratives and become better storytellers.

Deep knowledge/experience in digital and business strategy, business management, IT, media, culture and video production.

23 years digital experience across analytics, marketing, SEO, content strategy, comms, screenwriting, diplomatic speechwriting and more.

I have worked extensively across Europe, UK and the Middle East. In another life, I was a professional musician. I still play, and make experimental film.

What I do as a narratologist

  • I help leaders develop and implement strategic narratives (messaging & story for sales, marcom, values, change, pitch decks & more);
  • I facilitate strategy & story sessions;
  • I advise, coach and train;
  • I help creatives strengthen the narrative integrity of their work; and
  • I write on topics such as narratology, media, communications and technology.

Based in Amsterdam, I work internationally and call upon an international network of trusted specialists for larger projects.
