The Power of Good Storytelling
Listen to the Episode
Welcome to the Driven Female Entrepreneur Podcast!
It’s the third week of our International Men’s Month Special where I’ve invited four inspiring men onto the show. In this episode I speak with Tony Johnston, an Emmy Award-Winning journalist, digital content producer, and the Founding Director of Tony Johnston Media
Tony was first exposed to journalists at a young age through his father, who worked in the publishing sector. This inspired him towards the path of becoming a journalist himself. He subsequently began working with Australian broadcast businesses, which led him to Switzerland where he got the chance to work for SwissInfo and World Radio Switzerland.
After a few years of finding where he fits and finding his rhythm, an opportunity finally came up where he could start doing his own thing. This is when he started his own business.
Now, he produces material of the highest calibre and helps Swiss enterprises, NGOs, and other global corporations generate powerful content that will enthral and inspire their target audiences through the power of storytelling.
Don’t miss this episode as Tony talks about his journey and the reason it’s crucial to always begin with a story that will effectively, succinctly, and compellingly communicate your key message before taking any action.

As an intuitive media all-rounder, Tony has been fortunate to have worked across a broad range of studio, location and event-based television, radio programs and online projects. From content creation, corporate video, moderating events, media training, script writing and social media campaigns.
Over his career, Tony has enjoyed an incredible variety of multimedia experiences on award-winning domestic and international programs.
