Transform Your Company Through Story:
Did you know information delivered as a story is 22 times more memorable than facts alone? Though not every PowerPoint or company-wide memo needs to be a Hollywood blockbuster, it’s no secret, according to Forbes, that storytelling is a vital tool for business growth and that employees who struggle with it can lose out on critical leadership skills and offer fewer competitive advantages for your company.
What We Do:
GrubStreet’s workplace writing program teaches creative storytelling skills that directly translate into inspiring leadership and increased business value.
Imagine the impact of delivering an unforgettable product pitch with real stakes, training employees through inspiring tales teaching organizational values, or giving a company update that resonates emotionally and motivates your team.
