“If They Care About Your Story, They’ll Care About Your Brand” Use Storytelling to Brand Your Biz

People are bombarded with messages all day long. But studies have shown that the ones they remember are the ones that have a good story behind them. In fact, people are 20 times more likely to remember your company or product if it has a good story. The trick is to find what’s compelling about your company or product, and weave the features and benefits into the narrative.

As the gatekeeper for an international Academy Award winning production company, Julie dishes the insider secrets on how to construct a great story. She’s worked in the development of over 1,000 scripts and heard numerous pitches requesting funding from $50,000 to 5 million dollars.

* Why people need heroes and where you can find them
* How to get people to think of your product first

Julie’s speech on creativity and innovation was right on target for our scientists, who constantly need to generate new ideas in the lab. The creativity exercises for left and right brain thinking showed how important it is to get ideas from all sources and be able to connect those ideas to come up with a new and unique innovation. It was fun, entertaining and educational.

It was a pleasure having Julie speak at our ASD International Retail Conference in Las Vegas. The retail and wholesale small business owners appreciated her topic “Using Innovation for Competitive Advantage”. The interactive creativity exercises helped get the audience involved, and demonstrated that creativity in business is definitely the way to beat the competition at their own game. I would highly recommend her speaking services.

All innovation starts with great ideas. Some of the most important innovations in history were discovered by accident, such as Post it Notes. Inventors know the tricks to generating breakthrough ideas on demand. We do it every day.

This book isn’t just about inventing a product. It’s about using the secret techniques that inventors know to generate breakthrough ideas. They could be ideas for products, services, marketing campaigns, advertising campaigns, or new business models.

This book is for corporations and organizations that want to turn their employees into problem solvers, but don’t know where to start. Or ones who have tried typical brainstorming with negative results.

It’s for small business owners and entrepreneurs who want to generate new ideas to stay ahead of their competition. It’s for employees who want to come up with new ideas at work to either make their job easier or to climb the corporate ladder by being the one that saves the company money, makes the company money or comes up with new ideas that add value.

Louis Pasteur said:

“Chance favors the prepared mind”

What I think he meant by that is that creativity isn’t a blank slate. It doesn’t just happen. It comes together when the mind is prepared ahead of time. And this is what makes Brainstreaming different from regular Brainstorming.

Water is essential for life. If you’re a company, ideas are essential for the life of your company. If you don’t generate new ideas your company will eventually die. You will be left in the dust by a competitor who does generate new ideas on a consistent basis.

The thing about a storm is that it’s unpredictable. You don’t know where it’s heading. A storm passes through every once in a while and dumps lots of rain all at once. A stream is constant. If you rely on only storms you might get lots of rain or you might get none. A stream is a steady flow of water.

The new Brainstreaming system is a way of integrating your personal life and your business life. It helps you solve problems you have outside of your job, as well as those in your job. Whatever time you put into it is valuable for all problem solving. The more you do it, the better you get at generating ideas and solving problems. Brainstreaming makes you smarter, and a more interesting person.

Tips and cautionary tales blend seamlessly to offer the reader a confident and comprehensive approach for turning danger into opportunity. Written for not just the corporate CEO but the Mom and Pop Store owner, this book is the beacon in the night, lighting the way.”
