Separating the Story from the Telling

I tell stories for a living, mostly on behalf of companies eager to convey their brand promise to others.

They wreak havoc unintentionally, eager to reap the benefits of storytelling but unclear on how to do it well. It is my job to show them the way.

The way, it turns out, is to separate the story from the telling.
