  • If you’re not acting in line, you’ll get found out.
    Our lives as communicators have got much more difficult.

  • Old model – one-way communication, selective, try to convince.
    Then along came the internet, and social platforms.
  • It doesn’t work
  • New tools – old model: conversation to persuade.
  • It doesn’t work
  • If you’re not acting in line, you’ll get found out.

  • How did that feel?
    Who hates networking? Who feels awkward speaking to people they don’t know?
    Now you’ve created a connection – you’ve got something to talk about in the coffee break
    Now imagine doing this at scale.
  • It’s about putting the humanity back into business.
    1 - Create understanding
    Convince
    Create dialogue
    Persuade
    Create resonance
    Move
  • OK, what if we could fix all that, make your job easy and fulfilling, and make you a mega success?
    What if your brand built and managed it’s own reputation, through a constant stream of authentic and moving stories?
    Easy, let’s change the culture of your organisation.
  • OK, so it’s not that easy.
    But it is that simple.
  • There are things you can do to develop deeply purposeful stories.
  • But, it’s a bit overwhelming, right?
    So where do you start?
    The only place you can. Where you are, with what you have.
