Master The Art of Brand Storytelling - 10/23/2019 - C1000

Who should attend?

Startups and small businesses
who want to stand out from their competitors, connect emotionally, enjoy brand affinity and
experience social success.


Have you ever wondered why some brands are so much more successful than others?

Tell me a story…make me care.

Brands that thrive do more than offer compelling features and benefits, Their appeal is personal and relevant, enriched by stories that touch people’s hearts and resonate. These stories weave through everything they touch and do - their products, service, marketing, website, social media, and even company culture. As a result, these brands are more likely to stand out and benefit from top-of-mind awareness for the long haul.

Branding experts with more than thirty years of marketing experience will lead this hands-on workshop. It is structured around a series of small group exercises designed to hone your ability to find and leverage your brand story. 

Learning Objectives

At the end of this interactive workshop, you will be able to:

  • Differentiate the many different kinds of content and brand stories 
  • Describe the key elements that make up a compelling story
  • Identify your brand's authentic and unique story 
  • Weave your story around the brand and tell it in a way that makes your audience care
  • Leverage it powerfully in person and creatively on or offline
