When the UK went into Lockdown in March 2020, I shifted all my training from face-to-face to online delivery. In just one week, I shifted 90% of my clients into webinar based training programmes. Now, I’m reaching new clients in Europe, the Middle East and America who want advice on stories, but without the expense and uncertainty of international travel.

I understand how “Zoom fatigue” sets in, and I run highly interactive sessions that keep the energy levels up.

I offer training sessions that run anything from one hour to a full day, in these areas:

Creative thinking and problem solving – the why, what if and how stages of innovation, and what to do when things inevitably go wrong. Wherever you work, if you need to solve problems, I can help.

Communicationstorytelling, pitching and presentations; because it doesn’t matter how good your ideas are if nobody’s listening.

What people say about my training sessions:

“Steve created a brilliant set of learning tools and delivered excellent insightful training to our staff. He has a great style and achieves results.” Andy Lovatt, MD at The White Room.

“Steve delivered one of the most impactful workshops on Creative Leadership that I have had the pleasure to attend in many years. Steve is a passionate and deeply knowledgeable expert on this topic. Highly recommended.” Mervyn Middleby, Head of Tech Ops, BBC Northern Ireland.

“Brilliant and powerful techniques to throw the creativity block out of the window. Steve communicated clear and concise ways of releasing the creative within and finding fast and effective solutions to any brief/project.” Derek Doritas, freelance 3D artist.

“What sets Steve apart from others in his field is his unique ability to read a room. He’s as comfortable training technologists, senior management, studio operatives as he is all forms of editorial staff. He’s just so experienced. It helps that Steve doesn’t just talk the talk – he’s walked the walk. All of the feedback we’ve received from Steve’s sessions has been hugely positive.” Niamh Farren, RTE.
