Andrew Thorp works with senior leaders and salespeople to improve their external marketing message, but also with their broader workforce to encourage a more connected and productive company culture.
Companies often hire a branding/marketing agency to help define their message, but this often fizzles out when the focus returns to the daily grind.
Andrew’s role is to help companies keep your brand’s ‘story’ alive, by working with the people who tell it, something he refers to as ‘Verbal PR’.
A former journalist, golf coach and Ryder Cup referee, he essentially reinvented himself a decade ago. Initially working as a speaker and presentation skills trainer, Andrew moved into the storytelling arena to help business people say something more interesting about their organisation!
And with an impressive list of clients including PWC, KPMG, Swiss Re, WHO, Coca-Cola, Unilever, Beaverbrooks, Telenor, Brewin Dolphin, & Poole Dick, it’s clear he’s in high-demand from some of the best!
A skilful and extremely personable storytelling trainer who not only delivers high-quality workshops but also does it with lots of fun and energy. He takes the time to really understand the objectives of the session and then find relevant and compelling support material to ensure his messages resonate with the group. I wholeheartedly recommend his workshops to literally anyone who ever talks to other people.

Andrew recently hosted our ‘Raising the Bar’ leadership conference and did a superb job. He identified the ‘golden thread’ from the various sessions…an articulate and polished speaker.
