Josh Gaillemin has been performing as a storyteller and delivering workshops since 1998. His informal and enthusiastic style has proved popular across the board delivering structured results for businesses, schools and the public sector.
His ability to read an audience and adapt his work to suit, enables him to work well in groups of all sizes: whether leading a conference of 250 in the after lunch ‘graveyard slot’ or taming a class of unruly 14 year old boys.
Josh enjoys continued success in museums, bringing their exhibits to life with culturally resonant tales, as well as creating and leading tours and one-off events. He spent 5 years working with vulnerable adults, where he developed his understanding that we each have our own voice and style of work, requiring a unique approach to each individual.
A partner and co-founder of TheWholeStory, he is married and lives in Peckham, London
