Dan is a Director and Lead Trainer for Narativ in the UK.
Dan’s love of exploring stories comes from his background as a theatre practitioner and he now combines co-running Narativ in London with creative projects in theatre, film and television. He has worked with the major subsidised theatre companies in London and regionally, and toured internationally with The Young Vic, The RSC and Complicité. He has produced one documentary and two feature films, The Longest Game, Never Here and Widow’s Walk.
In 2001 Dan helped to create the ground breaking AND internationally acclaimed storytelling theatre piece, Two Men Talking with Narativ Founders Paul Browde and Murray Nossel. This piece explores the infinite possibilities of two men in conversation on stage, sharing unscripted stories from their lives. It has been performed Off-Broadway, at the Edinburgh Festival and in London’s West End.
Dan contributed to the foundation of Narativ and in 2009 became Joint Director of Narativ London with his wife Jane Nash.
Jane is Director and Lead Trainer of Narativ in London. She believes passionately in the transformative power of Listening & Storytelling and brings a rigorous, compassionate ability to listen in all situations, creating trainings that her clients say are practical, inspiring and always human.
Since training with Murray Nossel in 2008, and bringing Narativ to London with her husband, Dan Milne, in Autumn 2009, she has facilitated workshops in many organisations using Narativ storytelling techniques.
Jane developed her love of story and her expertise in the behaviours of personal impact in a career spanning many decades, working internationally as an actor, writer, director and theatre maker. She continues to create pieces of theatre powered by her own life story, most recently an exploration of family, ‘ALL THOSE THINGS’.
Philip has long known the power of stories to bear witness to the unique value of those we encounter in our lives, drawing on his experience in advertising, law and theatre. He loves his work with Narativ and brings a compassionate and inquisitive coaching style to enhance the impact individuals have in sharing the very best of who they are.
"A personal story doesn’t have to be beautifully crafted in order to affect us, it just has to be real. As an actor, coach, mother, partner and friend I understand that telling my own stories isn’t solely about me opening up but also about allowing others in. Sharing my unique discoveries, vulnerabilities, observations and most importantly perhaps, learning to own who I am. It’s this sense of ownership that I want others to feel. To be excited remembering themselves."
Barbara walked into a Narativ workshop looking for technique and stayed for the ever surprising revelations of human stories. Barbara brings her experience as an actor and coach and has worked in learning and development within organisations across every sector. She supports leaders to use meditation, voice and bodywork to feel grounded and capable.
Barbara read Psychology at Sheffield University and qualified as an Integral Coach with New Ventures West.
Being part of a process in which humans surprise and delight themselves and others with their own stories is a great privilege.
Working with newcomers to Narativ brings together Mary’s love-affair with story, as a writer and journalist, with her deep and insightful listening as a coach. Her gentle curiosity, and natural facility with words, help people discover the thrill of personal storytelling and its power to resonate and weave authentic connection with others.
