Dr. Adrian McIntyre is a cultural anthropologist, media personality, and internationally recognized authority on communication and human connection.

He has worked in over 30 countries as a storytelling consultant, communication adviser, researcher, journalist, and media spokesperson for two of the largest humanitarian relief agencies in the world.

Today, Dr. McIntyre delivers speeches and workshops on high-performance communication and culture. He trains executives, managers, and teams on effective communication, personal storytelling, and the art of conversation so they can win in the new hybrid workplace by creating a culture of engaged, invested, and happy people.

His unique methodology is informed by a lifetime of experience in traditional media -- he grew up in his father's radio station -- as well as 6+ years of implementing many of the tactical disciplines that power today's online businesses, including podcasting, content marketing, digital product development, Facebook advertising, webinars, email marketing, sales funnels, and membership sites.

Adrian's on-air broadcasting experience began at the age of five, when he began co-hosting "The Happy Day Express," the longest-running children's radio program in California history.

He reported for Newsweek during the run-up to the invasion of Iraq in 2003, then traveled to Baghdad as a member of the crisis response teams for Mercy Corps and Oxfam.

When extreme violence forced aid agencies to withdraw from Iraq, Adrian moved to Sudan to work as a media officer and policy adviser. For 14 months he was Oxfam’s field-based spokesperson on the crisis in Darfur, helping to make that conflict the biggest news story of 2004.

His hundreds of media appearances have reached millions of people via major news outlets such as the BBC, CNN, National Public Radio, FOX News Online, and the New York Times, as well as regional newspapers and radio stations throughout North America and Europe.

Dr. McIntyre earned a PhD in cultural anthropology from the University of California, Berkeley, where he was a Fulbright scholar and National Science Foundation research fellow. He remained there an adjunct professor until 2012, when he left the university to teach and train in the private sector and online.

His clients range from principals of professional services firms to senior executives and middle managers of aerospace companies, hedge funds, technology start-ups, United Nations agencies, and global non-profits.
