I’m Joe Dodgshun, a brand storytelling consultant creating stories to scale solutions for impact-focused businesses and organisations. With more than a decade’s experience and a wide range of partners, I offer full-stack storytelling services to amplify your impact and help accelerate the transition to the more equitable and sustainable world we need.
My impact storytelling career began as I travelled from New Zealand to Antarctica to cover climate research as a journalism graduate. After a stint in mainstream print journalism, unstoppable curiosity led me to Europe and, eventually, Berlin, where I immersed myself in the city’s vibrant start-up scene and gravitated towards the social enterprise sector.
I’ve since written about cutting-edge European science and tech, told the tales of social enterprises, changemaker networks and progressive SMEs, and translated cleantech innovation into tangible brand stories. You can find some of my clients here.
Now based in Freiburg im Breisgau, I work as an independent consultant, a member of the K-Tiv storytelling collective and with agencies to help clients uncover and tell the best stories for scaling their solutions.
