Business storytelling that people remember. What are the necessary components of your story that people won’t forget? What do people need to hear before they can consider your offer?
This topic is SO BBC: telling one’s story, one’s business entrepreneurial tale, one’s life narrative, how one got to where they are, where they’re going. “Not just what you do businesswise, but who you are that does it, and the business wisdom you’ve learned along the way.”
Messaging Frameworks: Leslie will describe and show examples of how messaging frameworks can help organize the story bits that illustrate the value your products or services offer.
Leslie Schneider is co-owner of OfficeXpats, and a marketing and communications specialist. She’s worked with start-ups and software giants offering marketing strategy, messaging, collateral design, and training development. Leslie offers her writing and marketing strategy consulting to businesses in Kitsap County and beyond! (Contact: leslie
