80% of the solution is in how you see the problem.


If you’re writing a TV series, designing a new marketing campaign or refocusing your company’s vision, you’re working within a system.

If you’re defining policy, capturing best practice or innovating a new service, you’re working within a system.

If you’re organising a conference, negotiating a contract or lobbying a government, you’re working within a system.

Paul Tyler will help you take a systemic approach to solve whatever you’re doing.



Are you a writer, producer or designer with a project in development?

Stories are systems, made up of simple and complex relationships between both characters and worlds. Paul applies a systemic approach to get your project made. He’ll have you digging deep to identify the underlying mechanics that drive your story. He does it for film, TV series, entertainment formats and interactive media.

You’ll reveal the drives, dependencies and motives that define the fundamental relationships between characters, contributors or users. You’ll expose the choices each makes, the values on which those choices are made and identify what’s really at stake.

The process helps you to think more clearly about exactly where you and the project are right now and the direction in which you should go.

Paul can help when it comes to pitching your concept, pinpointing the key elements that make or break a presentation.

Paul’s technique of mapping was a turning point in the development of my project. It helped me to clearly see the unconscious hesitations I was holding towards my subject.

A scary and exciting process that I truly recommend to anyone who wants to know what their idea is, and more importantly why they want to give it life.
— Mads Damsbo Filmmaker & Co-founder & Partner at MAKROPOL
It was the equivalent of doing three weeks of creative work into one three hour session.

Developing a new campaign, product, service, policy or strategy?

Teams will struggle to develop anything useful without being on the same page. There must be common understanding of the challenges and opportunities that make up the systems in which you operate. If you don’t agree on such system complexity, you run the risk of failure.

Paul helps teams clarify, coordinate and harness understanding during the development of campaigns, products, services, policies and strategies, using a fast and proven mapping technique. The value for you is getting everybody onto that same page, unbelievably fast. Paul works with teams to map-out the way their organisations create, deliver and capture value. Pressing issues are exposed so that teams can design output that’s based on genuine, gathered insights.

By working within your system, any generated campaign, concept, product, service, policy or strategy, can be tested and validated.

— Thomas Hailer Berlinale Curator & Dramaturg, Head of Studies AKADEMIE FÜR KINDERMEDIEN
What you did in the session, conveying the essence of the project, others struggle to do with a 300 page strategy report.

Need a moderator or facilitator?

Twelve years in BBC television production and four years in theatre has equipped Paul with a sharp and highly analytical editorial approach. He'll work with your team during preparations to design the journey for the audience, connect with all speakers in advance, and then on the big day seek out and illuminate the red thread; making you think and laugh at the same time.

You did an excellent job of hosting Crowd15 and I loved your touch of sarcastic British humor, kept people happy.
Paul challenged me and my team on the big ’why’ and key messages of the programme. In his positive, yet sharp thought-encouraging way, Paul made sure we had all the necessary discussions to ensure a successful day, where the red thread and intention of the day was clear to everyone, guided by Paul’s strong focus and critical questioning.
Paul Tyler did an outstanding job chairing our conference activities engaging the audience with catchy remarks and questions to essential aspects of the contents … the intermediation of an professional facilitator clearly helped the participants gain more value out of the conference sessions and we all looked more professional as a result of his intervention
An exceptional ability to engage the audience and an extraordinary knack for picking out and highlighting key insights.
