Dan Dowman, Founder of Anthem  

Anthem works with higher order brands, visionary start ups, and small businesses with big ideas. The brands that aren’t willing to trade mission critical objectives for short term fame and vanity metrics. The brands that are willing to risk today’s podium in favour of a greater prize. 

Using a combination of coaching and brutally simple workshops that anyone can master, Anthem helps brands amplify their Collective Fluency and invest in their company culture; helping functions and stakeholders to collaborate effectively to find the stories that make them distinctive and help their brand rise above the noise. 

Anthem was founded in 2023 by Dan Dowman, a culture coach and strategic advisor. Over the last two decades, Dan has helped 36 of the world’s biggest brands across sectors achieve cultural impact through a provocative and unconventional approach that challenges the status quo.  

At heart, Dan is a brandthropologist, combining his passion for anthropology and meaning with his cultural branding expertise.  

A restless and skilled storyteller, Dan has a gift for pattern recognition and always been passionate about the human dynamics that motivate people. And though his strategic intuition has coalesced into a professional practice, Dan’s journey started in High School where he launched a social action club. Since then he’s spearheaded a multitude of community projects and raised hundreds of thousands for NGOs.  

Known for his signature warmth, wisdom and relatability, Dan’s reputation is built on his ability to challenge power dynamics and reveal what truly matters to leaders and brands, and translate that into stories that gather people, ignite passion and unlock momentum.
