"I thoroughly enjoyed this course!! It was sooo helpful. Not only were you able to dig further into the process that he went through at HubSpot but he also ran through a case study at another company he worked with and gave clear examples of how to execute on something like this internally and externally. I can't wait to use this with my own company!"

Ashley Herbert, Head of Product Marketing at Recruitee

He’s been a solid storyteller all his life, but it wasn’t until he developed the Narrative Design process that he was able to codify, replicate, and consistently create amazing stories.
