The Power of Story makes the core of My Keynotes!


The business world is going global and noisy with lots of information bombarding us, competing for our attention.

This makes it challenging for anyone to stand out and capture the spotlight of attention. Holding competence, creativity, ambition – delivering the best result – is not enough for being heard and valued.

But through wielding a compelling brand story you can achieve a lasting grip on peoples’ interest. And through strategic, authentic storytelling, you can position yourself with authority in your market. Gather followers and lead your team to success.

That is the power of storytelling.

To be able to connect with others in a deeply meaningful, human way – bonding deeply with your audience and move them to action.

This is the mission of my keynote package – to teach experts how they can use the power of story as a strategic tool. And grow into the leaders our world so desperately needs!

As event photographer I mostly spend around 15 – 20 minutes at each workshop or address just to get my pictures.

At Åsas workshop I chose to stay the entire session. It was too good to leave!

Your speech gave our conference a fantastic ending!

I brought with me the energy you gave us and have been thinking the whole weekend on how we could apply your tips within our organisation.
