Win your audience with the power of stories


 

Stories are around us everywhere.  

They are an important part of our culture and an equally integral part of doing business.  As the media landscape gets more chaotic by the day, crafting strong stories that cut through the clutter has become an increasingly crucial art, science, and skill.  

Facts, figures, and data will get you far, but designing a clear and powerful story around that critical information will make earning the business of new clients and customers — and keeping the loyalty and trust of existing ones — fresh and interesting.

Storytelling is a vital skill in our business. It’s not enough these days to have strong presentation skills, but rather one needs to possess the ability to weave data, media plans and recommendations into an engaging story. We were looking for a workshop to address this important talent. Julio was the obvious choice to partner with for this project. With his background in corporate communications married with skills and experience as a filmmaker, his Story Hero program was the perfect fit for our needs. Since launching the program we have only have had rave reviews on the course. He’s a valued learning partner and we look forward to a long relationship with him and his company.
