Brad’s company offers business executives the opportunity to learn from top thought leaders and subject matter experts while utilizing the latest interactive, choose-your-own adventure-style technology. Brad founded his company after spending years traveling the country training others. He took his knowledge and sales expertise to the digital space, embracing other business experts and offering them a platform to share their skills and wisdom with others.
Alongside this technological interactivity, the C-Suite is quickly learning the value of storytelling in engaging their teams and customers. Our second guest, Julie Roehm, Chief Storyteller and SVP of Marketing at SAP, has firsthand experience understanding the value of a great story in business. Telling stories gives the customer a voice, and it allows C-Suite leaders to understand their unique challenges and problems.

Successful companies always have an intriguing and inspiring story to tell. From Apple to TOMS Shoes, leaders across the world are well-versed in these tales of turning visionary ideas into powerful businesses that have transformed society.

Storytelling as an ancient art form and a valuable form of human expression. In Rolf Jensen's The Dream Society, he predicts: "The highest-paid person in the first half of [this] century will be the 'storyteller' [...] valued for his or her ability to produce 'dreams' for public consumption."
People are captivated by a good story. They enjoy two types of stories: one with which they can identify or relate to and one that allows them a view into the lives of other people. This is why reality television has soared in popularity. We really can't help our curiosity. People love to know what is going on in other's lives. Storytelling is an ancient art that has never lost popularity. At one time it was the stuff that legends were made of. Now it's a way in which we connect and share. It's also a valuable skill to learn.
Cortney McDermott says, "How can you grow rich in any field? By mastering your story. No one else has your story. It's your snowflake, your unique contribution."

What's YOUR Story?
Certified Transformational Life Coaches Ingrid Sthare and Vicy Wilkinson share an interactive mini-class about one of our favorite things: Storytelling.
Goal: Engage with storytelling from the perspective that it's useful for healing, change, and growth.
From Narrative Therapy to Healing stories to storytelling to increase the bonds between ourselves and other human beings, our podcast tonight is a follow-up opportunity to share stories and talk about how stories make up who we are after this week's popular Meetup.
We'll talk about some key factors like the effect of stories on our perceptions and perspectives, stories as creative force, understanding our strengths and admired qualities in others, narrating the past and our connections to it, learning, and the "magic" of stories to reveal our metaphorical insides... and how stories can even act as crystal balls that show us or even create our futures.
