  • BRINGING THE POWER OF MOVIES TO CORPORATIONS
    WITH AND WITHOUT THE CAMERA

    I started Backstories because, as a corporate professional, I saw so much good work go to waste and so many smart people lose their sense of purpose - all because they were lost in the clutter of charts.

    I wanted to help them, and I knew I had a better way.

    Because as a film professional, I know that movies and the way they tell stories - simple, quick, visual, emotional - can give managers and directors something more powerful, something that embodies everything execs want from "storytelling."

    So in my workshops and videos, I help them take their information and ideas to a whole new level - so they can get seen, get heard, and get buy-in.

    While my workshops apply to all kinds of communication, here's where my videos are especially effective.

    HERE ARE THE
    AREAS IN MY
    WHEELHOUSE
    Consumer insights
    Strategy
    Sales meetings and bios
    Executive vision
    Corporate communication
    Presentation training
    Onboarding
    Company histories and profiles
    High-level presentations
    Success stories
    MOVIE STORYTELLING POWER, EVEN WITHOUT THE CAMERA

    Video is only one part of it. There are literally dozens of movie storytelling strategies you can bring to your presentations, from the way you approach a chart to the way you move your feet when you speak.

    One big difference in my workshops is that I use your existing presentations as examples in the exercises, so attendees feel the difference instantaneously and come away with immediate value.

    Because so much of what I do is confidential, some of these samples are fictional. I trust you'll get the idea, though, and can look forward to your work being of even higher quality and even more true.

    WHAT KIND OF
    IMPACT DO YOU
    WANT TO MAKE?

    I do my best work for clients who want to make a bigger difference - for their companies, their customers, their colleagues, and, of course, for themselves.

    It just feels so good every time I get that call telling me how they knocked it clear out of the park.

    I've got a method to make that happen more often and invite you to get in touch.
