    Disruptive ideas for a more beautiful world

  • What We Do

    We help changemakers tell their story, and help storytellers change the world.

    Build a mind bomb.

    Ideas that ripple out in shock waves around the world...

    The world doesn't need little stories about incremental change. It needs big, booming, transformational stories. Stories that leap over the seven seas to the four corners of the globe at the speed of thought. Stories that hack the world's operating system. We're creative strategists who love building mind bombs -- we'll help you light a fuse.

    Find your storytelling magic

    Workshops? We call them playshops...

    Creativity isn't unleashed around the usual meeting table with a speakerphone. We'll take your team on a magical journey down a rabbit hole where all the rules get broken. Whether you need a three day workshop on culture jamming modern mythologies, a day's introduction to story as theory of change, or a half day of exercises to build new storytelling muscle to bolster your communications, campaigning, or fundraising, we've got unconventional methods to bring out your most beautiful mischief.

    Tell your organisation's story

    Once upon a time, there was an organisation without a story...

    A powerful organisational story is a way to align your staff and resources, bring clarity to your work, and help you inspire your audience to answer your call to action. Or your call to adventure. We'll work with your team to identify the story elements and the narrative you need to bring your story to life, and to truly live its values.

    Get inspired

    Need a speaker? A speech?

    From scripting a TED talk to writing a children's book to producing some of Greenpeace's most successful video content: we love telling stories to a crowd. We can talk about our activist histories and the future of activism. Or the hurdles and high points of how we brought a new story to life at Greenpeace. We have salty seafarer stories and magical tales -- and decades of lessons in organisational change, growth, and reinvention to share.

  • Who We Are

    Brian Fitzgerald

    Senior Treehugger

    Brian's stories include stopping a nuclear weapons test in the Nevada Desert, sailing to Iceland to save whales, living on an olive farm in Italy and an embarrassing fall, as a trainee pilot, from a hot air balloon. In 35 years at Greenpeace he bounced from box to box in the organogram: from door-to-door canvasser to campaigner to communications director to fundraiser, deck hand, digital pioneer, action coordinator, and story teller. He remains an unapologetic believer in peace, love, and understanding. 

    Tommy Crawford

    Chief Mischief-Maker

    Tommy's stories include breaking the world record for the biggest consecutive striptease, disrupting Milan Fashion Week with some beautiful trouble, choosing poems over jumpers to keep him warm in a forest in Devon, and a magical moment with a fox. He led a pirate band of communicators at Greenpeace to create a new organisational story, was Creative Director of the global Detox Campaign, and still made it home in time for tea and crumpets.
