About Robin

Storytelling is the thread that runs throughout Robin Bayley’s life. Following a successful fifteen-year career in the advertising and television industries, he decided he wanted to tell his own stories and wrote an internationally-acclaimed non-fiction book about… storytelling.

It was when he was speaking at literature festivals and events around the world that he discovered the true power of spoken stories, and the magic of creating a connection with an audience. People began to ask him to help them tell their stories, and this has become his calling; to empower people to say what they need to say, in the way they need to say it.

He has coached high-profile personalities, TEDx speakers, campaigners, senior executives and emerging leaders, individually and in workshops, everywhere from Sydney to Silicon Valley and Madrid to the Middle East.

Robin trained as a coach with the internationally renowned Coaches Training Institute in 2015. He is a leadership and communications coach at Ginger Public Speaking, and co-hosted The Story Party storytelling event in London for over two years. 

About jojo

Jojo Thomas worked in the city for ten years, as a business editor and team leader, before following her dream of helping people live happier lives by training as a Co-Active coach. As someone who has always written and performed her own material – writing plays, poems, and stories since she was a young girl – Jojo is passionate about helping others to unlock their confidence and creativity, and have fun in the process!

As well as coaching, Jojo runs regular creative writing workshops, and co-facilitates storytelling evenings in London. She even crops up on the London stand-up comedy circuit occasionally, and has a keen sense of how to bring humour and fun to a speech.

Also a qualified hypnotherapist, Jojo can help even the most nervous speakers find their voice and access the stories they want to tell.

Like Robin, Jojo is a coach at Ginger Public Speaking, specialising in courage and impact. She is co-host of regular London storytelling event The Story Party.
