Danielle is carving out a new market as Co-Founder and Managing Director of My Word. With business acumen, an entrepreneurial flair and insights built from her corporate background, she has acted on a gap in the market.
Drawing on her 10+ year experience working across different industries has given Danielle the resilience and knowledge to position the business as a market leader.
Family is at the core of her drive and she is now on a mission to help others connect through stories that would otherwise be lost. Danielle uses this passion as energy to steer the business to further and future growth.
David’s extraordinary ability to get to the heart of a business’ identity has driven the success of RYP International, his management consultancy specialising in leading any organisation through a longitudinal cultural change process.
Backed by 30+ years of industry expertise and tangible results, David’s wisdom and insight into team dynamics and leadership uncovers the real story of an organisation.
This passion, ambition and know-how has lead him to become the Co-Founder and Chairman of My Word. David knows the value of stories, and as a seasoned chairman, his expertise is invaluable in setting the path for My Word.
I am the Creative Director at My Word, so I oversee all the creative ‘packaging’ and design for the stories we capture. I ensure every deadline David and Danielle set me is met, drawing on my extensive design experience, paired with my attention to detail.

I am a Jack of all trades at My Word. My years of bookkeeping (for my husband) and teaching has given me the skills to support our ambitious co-founders and help bring their ideas to life (in a realistic way). They name it and I’ll attempt it!
2. Coffee with friends
Organised, punctual and will-have-a-go!
