“Being able to craft, tell and live your story is one of the fundamental pillars of influencing, persuading and leading”.


In a world where feelings are trumping facts and doing is more important than saying, audiences are more discerning regarding the products they chose and the brands they support. Stories are the perfect vessel for this complex world, as they communicate to both the rational and the emotional perspectives of our customers and our employees.


Join Cilian Fennell as he helps you to understand the power of storytelling in brand communications




The Brand Storyteller 




Cilian is a Director of Stillwater Communications and is one of Ireland’s leading communications and messaging development consultants. He is known for his authenticity, passion and understanding of storytelling and communication, and works with leaders across all sectors in Ireland and internationally. His experience in media, politics, business and the NGO sector has given Cilian a deep understanding of how society works and he uses this understanding to give relevant and timely strategic advice.

Cilian grew up in Connemara in the west of Ireland where he developed a love for storytelling. After travelling extensively as a fisherman and sailor he began a successful career in television. His experiences as producer of the Late Late Show in RTÉ and Head of Programmes in TG4 gave him an insight into communication, connection and engagement with a wide range of audiences. This led him to a further exploration of narrative, mythology and belief systems which he uses widely in his work today.

Cilian has successfully adapted the story model to a business model and now helps companies, teams and individuals to discover, develop and deliver their story effectively. Working with narrative inquiry he guides organisations to find the true story that drives them and helps them articulate it to their various audiences. He works as a strategic advisor, coach and consultant to some of the world’s biggest organisations and has worked with domestic and multinational companies in Ireland, UK, US, Middle East and Asia. He also works with state and semi-state bodies such as the Department of An Taoiseach, ESB, Dublin Bus and RTÉ in the areas of media training, corporate messaging, and communications strategies.

Cilian also has extensive experience coaching start-ups and established businesses that are pitching for investment or growth opportunities. He is a regular contributor to technology incubators and start-up bootcamps in San Francisco, London and Dublin, helping teams to hone their stories and deliver compelling pitches.
