About Rob Caskie

Story Teller  • Keynote Speaker  • Cultural Guide

Storytelling is the most powerful way to put ideas into the world.

I love telling stories, always have. Who would ever have conceived that sharing stories about solo motorcycle journeys in Africa would have led to a career as storyteller? With a varied background and extensive travels I have always believed that human beings have an innate desire to hear stories, more particularly stories about human beings, rather than events.

My storytelling career began in earnest in 2001, on the famous Anglo-Zulu War battlefields at the foot of world renowned raconteur, David Rattray. Researching and sharing human dramas has taken me to the Antarctic on numerous occasions, the Arctic, annually to the UK and very regularly to the Battlefields.

One may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone’s soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows what they may do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift as storyteller / influencer.

That special privilege and responsibility drives me daily to hone my skill, research new stories, and share the fantastic lessons which emerge from these stories of Life.The theatre of your imagination is a very powerful backdrop.

I choose stories from my repertoire for clients depending on their theme or what their objective is. I modify content accordingly, drawing from a miscellany of stories. A company with diversity issues will not want the same delivery as a game lodge or birthday gathering.

With stick and trademark shorts, I pride myself in positive, unique storytelling – live or online.

– Rob Caskie


Storytelling may seem like an old-fashioned tool, today – and it is. That’s exactly what makes it so powerful. Life happens in the narratives we tell one another. A story can go where quantitative analysis is denied admission: our hearts. Data can persuade people, but it does not inspire them to act; to do that, you need to wrap your vision in a story that fires the imagination and stirs the soul. When you want to motivate, persuade, or be remembered, start with a story of human struggle and eventual triumph. It will capture people’s hearts – by first attracting their brains.

I am sharing short stories monthly online, via Patreon.

A true miscellany of tales, which Patrons are very much enjoying. Ideal over coffee, whilst preparing dinner, or over wine in front of a fire..

Rob Studio
Online storytelling

Given travel and gathering restrictions since March 2020 due to Covid-19, I have embraced online storytelling, and loving the challenges and opportunities this offers. Getting plenty of practice in front of camera for my Patreon platform. From remote corporate functions, year end functions, birthday gatherings and family get togethers, they have all been hugely successful. I have a home studio, and would be delighted to share stories with you online.
