Karen Dietz's curator insight, July 8, 2014 12:03 PM

Simon Anholt recently delivered this TED talk and it is a doozy on several fronts.


What caught my attention when watching this is the point Simon makes about a nation's brand story -- i.e. reputation -- and its effect on economic prosperity plus being able to make a difference in the world.


If this is true for nations, it also holds true for business. Which is one reason why companies embracing doing good in the world as a fundamental way of doing business are gaining more customers in the marketplace. This is beyond simply attaching your company to a social cause.


This is a terrific talk and you will be surprised at which countries do the most good in the world. Simon indicates that these countries consciously create their story. People are attracted to that story, which they in turn tell. At least that seems to be part of the dynamic Simon talks about.


Maybe I'm reading too much into this -- or maybe not. In the end, if you wanted your country to be in the top 10, what parts of your country's story needs to change? What kind of story do you want to be a part of?


If this was a business list, what would need to happen to have your company be in the top 10? What kind of story (stories) would it need to be embodying and sharing?

"An interactive look at six of the rooms in “Sleep No More,” an environmental theater piece.

Over 100 rooms are on display in a renovated space in New York’s Chelsea gallery district for the interactive theater piece “Sleep No More,” from the British troupe Punchdrunk. To the sounds of an eerie soundtrack, masked audience members walk at their own pace through the rooms, where they encounter performers re-enacting pivotal scenes from Shakespeare’s “Macbeth.”

“The web gives us, as directors, a lot of possibilities, freedom and creativity to tell stories in a new way,” the 46-year-old Dufresne (pictured, left) tells realscreen, adding that a broadcast version of Fort McMoney is in production.

“You don’t tell the same things in a TV version that you do in a web doc or game doc,” he says. “On the web, what is magical to me is that people feel they are part of the movie, part of the story – that they’re inside...."
