We all love to tell a story, We all love to hear a story – and hey, we’re in the business of storytelling (who isn’t these days?). But since ‘the story’ has superseded ‘the big idea’ and ‘the journey’ how do we tell the difference between a good story and a bad story and more importantly how do we sell it?
Well fortunately for us, last night we trekked on down to the SheSays event ‘Finding Great Stories’ at Barker on Wall Street, New York. I guess you could say this is a story, to explain that story, about how to sell the best story.

Question. Have you signed up yet? Because if you haven’t you seriously should. The lovely bunch over at It’s Nice That have launched a platform to fill you with BRAINSPIRATION. Finally, a site you can learn from that doesn’t look like it’s fresh out of the medieval windows 95 era. Check it all out.
This picture was a gift from my career changing placement.
The only time I've ever worked as part of a team was at university. I was an art director and did the pictures and my copywriter, Ross did the words. While this was a great creative team we split in 2011, graduated and went on our separate paths. (Embarrassing shots attached!)
