A New Storytelling Framework for Bridging Innovation Divides

Consulting to help you build a stronger innovation culture with storytelling that inspires.

Innovation efforts fail when breakthrough ideas don’t get championed.

It doesn’t matter how innovative your leaders are, if they can’t share their ideas effectively, they won’t win the support they need to proceed.
This disconnect is the reason 72% of executives say they are not out-innovating their competition1Source: https://www.pwc.com/us/en/services/consulting.html.
Beneath the surface, your top innovators, scientists, and technologists feel misunderstood, misaligned, and missing the skills they need most of all. The bottom line:
Innovation is about communication, and storytelling is key to your organization’s very survival.

Here's what our clients have to say:

Doug Bruhnke
"Rarely does a marketing leader impact my thinking as deeply as Susan did in her first workshop at Global Chamber. I find Susan's approach to be innovative, thoughtful, and groundbreaking because what she conveys is accessible to all, and actionable by executives and entrepreneurs of any size firm. The overwhelmingly positive reaction by attendees has been further confirmation that it's not just me. People love Susan and how she changes their business and lives. Susan gets my highest recommendation for executives and companies looking to make a shift in their team's marketing and sales performance, and grow their success in global markets. Reach out to Susan right now and discuss how she can help your clients, members, and/or organization be more effective, viral, and impactful."

"Susan is a gifted storyteller and corporate communicator. She can extract complex ideas from my head and present it in a way that's well-received and impactful, inspiring my team and customers into action. She has enabled me to become a better keynote speaker, thought leader, and executive who energizes my audiences. The quality of Susan's work and professionalism is second to none.
