I drive words to work

My offer to you

Before your next audience of tens or thousands, pitch your stories to me, live, on Zoom or Skype.

Invite my mind to work on your behalf, interactively, real-time,  in a way that nobody close to you will ever do.





Print is just part of it.

As more books, articles, blogs, tweets, emails and thread comments are now written than will ever be read, the success of your writings has to come from the way you deliver words in your podcasts, vids. trailers and at live events.

You are now the main story

Whilst you are on stage, anyone in your audience can be spreading your stories globally  – sharing them as spoken live, capturing them during question time and at improvised face-to-face meetings.

So during live events, meetings, signings, interviews, talks and trade shows, your voiced words and actions need to be informative, inspiring, attention-holding and entertaining. Words which once worked for you when displayed as text, now require intonation, motioned-delivery and pace changes to match your widening audience.

My backstory

My early work with words started alongside the legendary copywriter Dave Southall, producing harder working words for a whole range of organisations including Refugee and Migrant Justice, the Council of Europe, Channel 4, Stoves, MTV, Prodrive, the National Maritime Museum.

In 1985 I co-founded TVRT studios, writing radio ads., sets for MC’s, DJ’s, musicians.

Combining my writing and visualising skills, I co-founded an interior design company, started the Little People Books imprint, joined two architectural firms, a marketing group, an educational partnership and supported a registered charity whilst managing my own company, GJA – Concept and Presentation.

My central focus is now on developing the HoBB Field Centre as a place to host friends, clients, events organisers, fellow writers, researchers and many visiting international students interested in sustainable growth, food security and global ecological balance.

I’ll design the way your words will take you forward :

Grant’s Art and Function when telling your story, is to …..

“Storytellers are the direct medium between the story and the audience, able to change pace, alter or explain a difficult point, dramatize or play down an event, according to the needs of those listening.”

  [The Art of the Storyteller by Beverley Mathias]

I write and present stories designed to:

* bring issues into the open,
* raise questions and
* expand your listener’s understanding.

I tell stories to:

*  extend your audiences’ thoughts on real or imagined worlds,
*  stimulate your listeners’ creative imagination,
*  create an appetite for words, and
*  introduce the shared activity of storytelling – from author or teller to audience”.

I send stories ‘travelling’ in books, vids. and podcasts but more effectively, I bring them in person, face-to-face for your audience.

I welcome all new opportunities to author, illustrate and use stories at events and informal get-togethers. Contact me and tell me about your intended audience – their age range, interests and listening experience.

Contact Grant to share stories and make new ones.
