Published on

Together with Adfo Groep Lemon Scented Tea is organising Storytelling Expeditions: three boat trips on the Amsterdam canals, where marketers and storytelling specialists will discuss the do’s and don’t’s of storytelling.
The theme of the first edition was Story Mining; finding the unique story of a brand or company.

The session started off with a quote from John Weich, author of the book 'Storytelling on Steroids‘:
‘Storytelling is a company strategy, not a communication tool’.

  4. 4. “When you see the stories of a company solely as content, you wont do that company justice. The story should be leading, and be deeply embedded in the boardroom.” – Gijsbregt Vijn, Lemon Scented Tea
  5. 5. “All organisations have stories that can be gathered from employees in every layer of the company. After finding those stories, companies should spread them in the rest of the company. Every employee should be able to get inspiration from the stories of other employees.” – All participants

  9. 9. “The feeling behind a brand is becoming more and more important. The story is the connection between internal and external parts of the company: if they differ to much it is hard to bring the story out to the public.” – Mayke van Keep, Issuemakers
  10. 10. “Story Mining, doing internal interviews, is the foundation of the brand and it’s marketing communication.” - Gijsbregt Vijn, Lemon Scented Tea

  13. 13. “International storytelling is harder than it looks: different countries with different cultures and, on the more practical side, different budgets, still need to sell one story. The best way to do this? A story with minimalized noise, as close as possible to the soul of the company.” – Sabine van de Velde, Diageo
