Impactful Storytelling for Innovators & Disruptors

Disruption is seismic. It triggers new growth, products and amazing market opportunities. And it offers layoffs, political infighting, and destruction. How do leaders get customers to follow them in light of massive change and an uncertain future? By cracking the code on history’s greatest storytellers, Susan gives leaders a blueprint for creating their own stories that offer a vision, message, and path that the market can follow – with religious zeal. Whether you’re a corporate innovator or startup disruptor, this workshop is the critical link that lets you communicate your ideas and turn a message into a movement that others will follow.
Using current business cases, you will:

  • Learn how top CEOs are crafting stories that move audiences to embrace disruption
  • Get a step-by-step guide to telling your personal story of innovation and why followers should care
  • Get your team to follow, align with your story and share it throughout the organization, and beyond.
