Your start-up must better position itself with its clients and partners, and with the media? Do you know the best practices for Storytelling and Image building? Learn from an experienced professional who understands the challenges and opportunities that you face. Storytelling is the use of a simple narrative that allows leaders and organisations to communicate why they do what they do – from the company’s culture, to its introduction of new processes, or better yet, to its move to a new digital platform. Storytelling carries a powerful emotional, philosophical force. If well-executed, it will help build your image.
