Keynote Storyteller

Hi, this is Jyoti Guptara and I’ve been a professional writer since the age of 17, when I published a bestseller. By 18, I was speaking at a United Nations summit and on stages internationally.

While I continue to write and speak, I am equally passionate about helping people apply storytelling principles to improve performance in personal dealings, in education and in business.

Find out how I went from writing “escapist” fantasy fiction to discovering the incredible power of stories to radically change individuals, organisations and entire nations.

For Readers

I write fiction and non-fiction

As a journalist, I have had a column and been commissioned to write a wide variety of pieces, from the future of work (Best Practice) to energy reform (E&, by a Swiss national research program). My first publication was in The Wall Street Journal when I was 15.

As an author, I specialise in speculative fiction, whether it is exploring social issues and satire or full-blown fantasy adventures for young and old.

For Leaders

Inspire. Instigate. Innovate.

  • Not impressed with your last marketing effort?
  • Mere polite applause after your speech?
  • Employees struggling to get on board with the vision?
  • Replace confusion with clarity
  • Go from information to inspiration
  • Give your message wings

You Need Story

The pen is mightier than the sword … and the spreadsheet

I work with individuals and organisations to ensure messages get the traction they need.

Storytelling takes the structures that make stories work, and applies them to the conceptualisation or communication of everything from an organisation’s strategy, vision and values, to its organisational culture, and indeed right through to the design, development and launch of products and services.  Storytelling is useful to every department of every organisation in every industry.

Here’s the good news: Stories don’t just present your identity to the world.  They shape it from the inside.

Storytelling. It's Design Thinking for Your Message.
