I’m Joe Dodgshun, a Brand Strategy & Storytelling Consultanthelping impact scale-ups live up to their potential to drive environmental or social change. With 12 years’ experience and a wide range of partners, I distilstrategic clarity and core stories to convince the people who will enable you to scale your solution.
My career began in Antarctica, where I covered climate research as a NZ journalism graduate. After a stint in print media, I followed my curiosity to Europe and Berlin. I immersed myself in the city’s start-up scene, transitioned to consultancy and gravitated towards the social enterprise and cleantech sectors.
I’ve since worked withchangemaker networks, cleantech scale-ups, growing social enterprises, progressive SMEs and specialist communications & branding agencies. On everything from brand strategy and development to impact reporting.See some of our work and their testimonials below!
Now splitting my time between the Black Forest city of Freiburg and the Meseta metropolis of Madrid,I help you uncover the best brand strategy and stories for scaling your solutions.
Joe is awesome, knowledgeable and talented. He helped Enapter build the brand narrative that reflects our mission to make green hydrogen affordable and accessible to all.

We’re looking forward to continued collaboration as Enapter grows and unlocks even more climate solutions.
