Storytelling Coaching

Storyteller Svend-Erik Engh

Storytelling Coaching: providing tools for everyone using stories in their work and life.

As your coach I will find your way of telling stories authentically in supportive one-to-one coaching sessions, either in person or via Zoom or Skype.
Whether you are a beginner or a more experienced storyteller, I can offer you guidance in how to
– shape and craft a story for a specific purpose
– tell your story authentically
– engage your audience
– develop confidence as a storyteller and a public speaker

I will provide you with take away tools that you can use when storytelling. Through a method of engaged listening, I will coach you in keeping your audience engaged. We begin with what works for you as a storyteller and we build on your strengths, so when you meet your audience, your storytelling will become a dance. Together we will find the joy in telling stories.

I have been working as a Storytelling Teacher and Coach since 1994 where I led my first workshops at Borups Højskole in Copenhagen. Since then I have worked with Teachers, Businesses, University Researchers, Artists and anyone else needing guidance in becoming a better storyteller.
I was Associate Professor at Copenhagen Business School and was Communication Manager at Dall Energy, Copenhagen for six years. Between 2008 and 2010 I was giving regular presentations and workshops at The Smithsonian Institute, Washington D.C.
I am Certified Practitioner Steve Denning Leadership Storytelling and founder of the Storytelling Academy in Sweden.
In 2017 I moved to Edinburgh from Copenhagen. Here I perform and teach storytelling and work frequently with The Scottish Storytelling Centre. I’ve recently made and performed two shows; GIANTS and Walk the Oars which premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe.
I am on the TRACS directory of storytellers.

finding Springboard Stories in groups

The 1st October 2018 5pm – 7pm

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.

More Springboard Stories to be found

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.
