I believe everyone and every business has interesting stories to tell, but sometimes they don't have the tools, the language or the audience. And sometimes they just make it too complicated.
I help people get better results by weaving beauty, simplicity and power out of complexity, chaos and uncertainty. I direct videos & animations, give engaging talks, consult businesses large and small & provide bespoke training, internationally.
Recent clients include Siemens, Adidas, Coca-Cola, The British Council & McKinsey. FULL BIO

His patience, support and the very organised structure of his training paid off - our startups were more confident and relaxed on their big day and their presentations were much clearer.” -Antonia Caraveteanu, Business Developer at Innovation Network for Advanced Materials
“Tom has a great way of listening to your needs and understanding your business, and then working out how to get that across in elegant and attention-grabbing ways. He's already done the creative direction for two videos, which both capture our company's brand and the message that we wanted to convey in exactly the way we wanted - despite our struggle to explain this clearly in a brief! A rare talent indeed." -Jason Cresswell, CEO
“I’ve participated in one of Tom’s workshops focused on storytelling for technology professionals and I really liked it. It was very engaging and interactive with the perfect mix between theory and practical exercises. It’s been a while since I took the training, but I still go back to Tom’s slides for inspiration whenever I have to prepare a presentation”
