Andrew

Thorp

Andrew Thorp is an award-winning speaker, trainer and consultant in the field of business storytelling. He 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 regularly hire a branding/marketing agency to help define their message (Vision, Values, Purpose, etc) but it often fizzles out when the focus returns to the daily grind; people revert to a factual and forgettable version.

Andrew’s role is to help companies keep that 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!

Andrew delivered a fantastic, punchy 3-hour session with our Academy for Chief Execs group...really useful. As a result we asked him to deliver some training to our senior managers. By the end every one of them was more relaxed and confident, and had developed some superb techniques for delivering their presentations.
