Infinity Works: Storyteller

I'm the in-house "Storyteller" for Infinity Works, a leading UK-based high tech consultancy working in fields such as AI, cloud technology, and big data. I'm a speaking coach and mentor, and I frequently give talks and workshops on a wide variety of subjects.

But what is a "Storyteller"? Good question - and it's one that is perhaps best answered by the inspiration for this role, Microsoft's Steve Clayton!

Schools, colleges, and universities

I often visit schools, colleges, and universities to talk about my work as a composer, and to help young composers with their work and career opportunities. Popular topics include "Responding to a composition brief", which is central to GCSE and A Level composition, and "How to get started: 10 ways to start (and finish) a piece of music". At a university and conservatoire level, I have covered topics including portfolio careers, and how to create and produce an opera on a limited budget, and I have led composition workshops.

Please contact me if you'd like me to visit your school, college, university, or conservatoire.
