Corporate Storytelling with Steve Multer
Every business needs a story. Not just a product. Not just a service. It’s the story you tell that can ultimately differentiate you from your competitors and connect with your customers. And who better than to teach us how than THE corporate storyteller himself, Steve Multer. Steve is a veteran corporate spokesman and trainer for over 100 global brands, including Cisco, Splunk, Panasonic, Fujifilm, HP, and Bayer. His strategic brand consulting company helps execs, leaders, and sales teams use the power of story to grow their companies. A self-described “evangelist for better corporate storytelling,” his passion for the topic really shines through in this episode, along with his goal to help people discover their stories. He explains that it’s not always about money; the smallest organization can tell its story just as effectively as Apple and Audie. It comes down to understanding the beating heart of your brand and how that differentiates you from the competition. Passion is infectious; those who can tell their story well are the winners. He’s also giving us a look at his new book, “Nothing Gets Sold until the Story Gets Told.” Designed to be used by anyone (regardless of job level, socioeconomic status, educational background, geographic location, etc.), it will help businesses of all sizes get in touch with the story within through a step-by-step guide, along with concrete examples you can put into action immediately.
