The opposite to this waste of money is storytelling. It is the art of being heard by merely whispering. It is how you get invited without knocking. And it is how you get retold – over and over again.

The stories about you are out there. We will explain how you can take hold of them and construct them so other human beings can spread them with ease.

You will also get an introduction to story branding. How humongous brands like IKEA, Apple and Disney has managed to short cut their way to your gut and heart. How they make people act. How they create action.
