The Story Midwife, Lisa Evans, joins Nic and Sarah for a chat about business storytelling.
Lisa helps people find their brand’s authentic voice and teaches them how to become confident and successful public speakers.
Brand Newsroom is a marketing podcast for anyone who has a say in how companies are communicating — covering marketing, content marketing, public relations, media, branding and advertising.
Here are some key take-outs:
- Be clear, concise and compelling when telling your story
- The best stories are simple stories told exceptionally well. When you have a simple story, people will relate to it, and connect to it, more readily
- The client should be the hero of your story and your product is the guide
- Be comfortable with your material but don’t memorise it. You want to be telling your story from the heart, not the head
- A good talk involves simplicity, time and experience.
On My Desk
- Sarah recommended “the Feather Heist” episode of the This American Life podcast
