The Business of Story Podcast | Convince and Convert

The Business of Story Podcast | Convince and Convert | How to find and tell your story | Scoop.it

While technology has given us all global reach with our messages, it's still the ancient bewitchery of storytelling that connects us with one another. The Business of Story podcast's goal is to help you craft and tell compelling stories that sell – online and off. You will learn from some of the brightest content creators, advertising creatives, authors, professors, makers, marketers, and brand raconteurs in the business. Host Park Howell promises that within every show you will learn at least one actionable tip that will make your stories more engaging, and help you advance your personal or professional quest further, faster.


A new show will be released every two weeks. Guests to the show’s website, TheBusinessofStory.com, will find a number of storytelling tools, including an interactive 10-step story cycle PDF, an e-book that explains the story cycle process and a worksheet that guides communications professionals in using the story cycle to craft a brand strategy. Additional tools will be added with the advent of newly released episodes.

I have long felt that much of our education can be improved by storytelling, and not just in fields like history. And now technology is (hopefully) making that an easier skill to learn.

Share stories...that's what people want to hear. 

Jim Signorelli,Story-Lab's curator insight, October 25, 2013 7:54 AM

Annette Simmons,  one of the "Storyati," has a new weekly podcast. 

In this, her second podcast, and while interviewing my delightful story friend Karen Dietz,  they talk about their connection to story, what it means to them and how they help others make the most of its power. Karen,  who claims she's more of a story scholar than a storyteller, does a pretty good job of telling her own story about some funny things that happened on the way to her doctorate.    Highly recommend a listen and subscribing to these podcasts.

The best stories are those worth sharing.  Even better stories are those that a leader helps his/her people to create together.
