As a story coach, Svend has the gift of empowering and enabling storytellers to develop their skills in oral storytelling whilst nurturing them with constructive and insightful feedback. Svend wholeheartedly listens to developing storytellers, then guides them with encouraging and insightful feedback, taking each person forward at their own pace. Importantly each person has an opportunity to feedback what has resonated with them in the comments Svend makes and identify what they will put into practise in future. I would highly recommend Svend-Erik as a story coach - he is a delight to work with.

Svend is a wonderful teacher! He is passionate about the world of story and manages to detect the strength and weaknesses within the tale. His workshops are joyful with valuable as well as kind feedback. Even though the workshops are online now, he is able to connect with each and everyone – creating a vibrant and engaged environment. I highly recommend working with Svend and discover new and surprising ways in your telling.

Svend is an amazing storyteller. His tales always weave an unhurried atmosphere with a full range of emotion, and before you realize it, an hour has flown by. He is also an excellent teacher, who can spot and communicate exactly where your strengths and weaknesses lie, and give accurate and practical suggestions for improvement. He gives the moment his full attention, giving encouragement, building confidence, and demanding more at all times.

Many, many thanks for the wonderful series of Master Classes you gave us. I thought it was amazing the way you homed in so exactly on what each of us needed to do to improve our stories while at the same time supporting our faith in our storytelling; and also the way you encouraged other participants to make valuable comments. I am particularly grateful for the help you have given me in overcoming sudden blocks in my storytelling, something that has been dogging me for some time, and for all that I have learnt besides that during these 4 Classes."
