Working with Cilian was a top highlight of Sensassure’s Highway1 experience. His guidance in creating a concise and compelling story has made all members of the team into highly effective communicators and champions of our brand. It’s worth noting that Cilian continues to be a great friend post-program - his warmth of personality is infectious!
Cilian has been pivotal to our success and funding. He helped us initially figure out how to tell our story as a company, which has been fundamental for the communication of our technology to the world. Even more than that he helped us determine how our story is communicated through different platforms, making it possible for us to draw in a huge audience with great interest... any start up would be lucky to have his advice.
If you think you can tell a story you are wrong. Cilian has spend a lifetime studying and thinking about how to tell stories and it shows. An hour with him is worth more than reading several books on story telling and practising in front of several audiences. If you want fast results to improve any story for any situation, work with Cilian.
"Everything Cilian does is with purpose. Regardless of what stage your company is at, if you want to shape your identity and tell a killer story Cillian is your man".

“Over the past three years, we have rolled out an extensive media training programme in ESB, supported by Stillwater Communications. Over this time, Cilian has proven to be an extremely effective coach and trainer, who has had a real impact at every level of the organisation, from the chief executive down. He has helped us hone our messaging on a very wide range of issues, bringing great clarity and confidence to the organisation.”
“Natasha stole the show at our International Women's Day event with her keynote on The Art of Confidence, delivered to 1,100 people. She is a gifted speaker who connects with her audience in a very engaging way. Highly competent on her subject, she delivered a memorable keynote that really struck a chord - witty, charming and utterly authentic. Can't wait to have the opportunity to work with her again.”
“Stillwater has worked with us in Accenture delivering training and coaching in communications at all levels in the organisation over the last 5 years. There isn't anyone better in this space and the service and true partnership that we receive from Cilian and the Stillwater team is superb. Above all, Cilian constantly challenges us and the audience, thereby helping make the complex simple.”
