• You're more than the stuff you sell

    You're a solver of your customers' vexing problems. A driver of positive change in your industry and community. A beacon of purpose for your employees.


    Look beyond the nuts and bolts, and start telling your stories!

  • So I have a question

    Which approach is best for you?

    Stick with the tired, outdated approach of promoting products, features & benefits, and be like everyone else?

    Show your customers the real you, connect with them as people, and stand out from the competition?

  • It's good to be different

    Your customers don't care about your products.

    • When they hear about features & benefits, their eyes glaze over. 
    • They don't believe claims that Brand A is better than Brand B, even if it's true.
    • They're bombarded with marketing, and they've heard it all before.
    Instead, they want to get to know the real you. And they want to see that you know them.

  • Convinced?

    Perhaps I can help you re-discover what makes your company special, and what stories will resonate with your customers. Or, perhaps not.


    Only one way to find out...

  • Skeptical?

    If you still have question marks flying out of your head, I understand. Business storytelling can seem squishy, and there are a lot of nuances. It's difficult to get it right.


    That's why I offer some resources to help you get your head around how business storytelling can work for you.
