WHY STORYTELLING IS CRITICAL FOR YOU AND YOUR BRAND

YOUR CUSTOMERS, PARTNERS, EMPLOYEES AND INVESTORS WANT
AN EMOTIONAL CONNECTION WITH YOU AND YOUR COMPANY.

GIVE IT TO THEM.

Simply put: people bond with your stories. It's what makes books best sellers, movies that get buzz, and TV shows that light up the Internet.

They want to know more about you, how your company got here, handled obstacles, and made discoveries.

I teach how to create, tell, and use your stories -- with your words, body language, and images -- integtrating them into your branding, sales, marketing and HR processes for maximum impact and simplicity.

If you don't tell your stories, somebody else will -- and it may not be in the way you want them told.

"THOSE WHO

TELL STORIES

RULE SOCIETY."

STORIES

BASED ON

TEN

CLASSIC

FILM PLOTS

As a long-time in-demand strategic communications consultant, I analyzed hundreds of popular business and entrepreneurial articles and social media headlines for frequency patterns. 
 

Those patterns form the 10 master headline templates you will learn as the enticing entry points for your stories.

Each headline must elicit two reactions at the same time: "WHOA!" and "How did that happen?"

I help you discover your company's “plot points” to build distinct, concise and compelling stories that captivate your target audiences.

Nearly every good personalized business narrative fits into one or more proven film structures that countless classics and hits have been based on.
