"Storytelling is a vital skill for any business leader. If you can't show people who you are, why would they trust you? I love helping people to open up and speak from the heart."

Award-Winning Journalist

Jehan Casinader is a journalist, author, mental health advocate – and one of New Zealand’s top storytellers. He’s passionate about helping creative people to connect in a meaningful way.

Each of us has a story about who we are.

But where do those stories come from? How do our stories influence our lives? And how can we tell more helpful, hopeful stories — especially as we navigate the ups and downs of Covid-19?

Jehan Casinader has wrestled with these questions. He’s one of New Zealand’s top TV journalists (He was named “Broadcast Reporter of the Year” at the Voyager Media Awards in 2020 and “Reporter of the Year” at the New Zealand Television Awards in 2018). He is also a survivor of depression and suicidality. As a speaker and facilitator, Jehan offers a fresh, enlightening perspective on how storytelling can help us to tackle life’s toughest challenges.

In the aftermath of natural disasters, terror attacks, sporting triumphs, and everything in between, Jehan has helped hundreds of Kiwis to share their vulnerable and deeply personal stories with the rest of the country.
