Paul Golightly

Narrative Advisor

Paul is motivated by a deep passion for the human experience: the stories we tell, the fears we protect, the vulnerabilities we share. He’s spent the past few years looking for ways that people can tell more useful stories to themselves and to one another, especially in organizations, by drawing upon fields as diverse as anthropology, philosophy, literature, and the hard sciences. His background as a business consultant, film producer, art dealership owner, and theatrical director provides a breadth of experience from which he draws insights for startups, nonprofits, and multinational companies alike. His holistic view of the interconnectedness of the world is the real secret behind his cooking skills.
