In 2008 Svend-Erik Engh became a Licensed Storyteller: Steve Denning Leadership Storytelling and has proved to be the only one of its kind.
Together Steve and Svend-Erik facilitated workshops all over Denmark, Sweden and USA.

Steve Denning once in an interview said “Svend-Erik is someone that masters both storytelling and business, he has taken the time to understand the difference between entertainment storytelling and business storytelling, he brings a unique level of enthusiasm and warmth into all the projects he is involved in, he listens and he is a funny guy”.

Three times they filled The Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C. where leaders from around the world came to learn the power of Storytelling.

After ten years of intensive work with Storytelling, Steve Denning moved on to explore the Agile world. In his book ”The Radical Management” from 2006 he points out Storytelling as the main principles for Agile communication.

Having worked with him for ten years, Svend-Erik knows Steve Denning’s storytelling methods better than anyone.

In this short introduction you will learn something about
· How a Springboard Story can change a mindset
· How you can, as a member of an agile team, communicate the wishes of the client in the form of a story
· How you can ask questions in such a way that you get a story as an answer


We approached Svend-Erik with the job of coaching researchers to develop engaging narratives of their research. Svend-Erik creates a uniquely inspiring and creative learning environment based on trust and expert narrator skills. Svend-Erik har a broad experience based from culture as well as organizational contexts, and brings his great personality to his coaching practice, too. All in all, I can thoroughly recommend Svend-Erik for any professional looking to improve on his/her storytelling skills.
