Doyle Canning partners with social change organizations to transform public narratives and open space for new political possibilities.
I am a creative, strategist, and communications specialist dedicated to growing inclusive movements for racial justice, economic transformation and an ecological future. I support strategy teams, organizations and networks by generating creative communications strategies that inspire, reframe, mobilize, and win.
I am a co-founder of the Center for Story-based Strategy (storybasedstrategy.org), co-creator of the story-based strategy methodology and co-author of Re:Imagining Change – How to Use Story-based Strategy to Win Campaigns, Build Movements and Change the World (PM Press, 2010).
Doyle can help you reinvent your strategy, re-imagine your story, and revolutionize your communications.
I have served as a facilitator, trainer, message creator, brand builder, strategy architect and direct action designer for organizations of all sizes and across multiple movements for 15 years. I have been a featured speaker at major national conferences like Netroots Nation, Bioneers and Facing Race. I am a contributor to the 2012 anthology Beautiful Trouble and have served as a source for stories on memes and social movements for journalists at publications like Waging Nonviolence and Colorlines. My writing has appeared in publications like Organizing Upgrade, Left Turn, TheOutsider.com and Yes! Magazine.
I also enjoy cooking fresh meals from the farmer’s market, pedaling my kids around in a Dutch bakfiets cargo bike and experimenting with fiction, memoir and poetry.
