Since we opened our doors in 2002, the team at The Chief Storyteller® has worked with organizations of all types, sizes, across all industries, in over a dozen countries (testimonials, past performance/success stories). From fast-growing companies to Fortune 50, to associations and non profits, to Government agencies around the world, our specialty is helping organizations that offer complex services–services that are difficult and challenging to explain. If you cannot answer the ubiquitous question of “What do you do?” in a compelling, engaging manner in under 30 seconds, then in all probability, you have a complex service. An even better way, apply The Grandma Test.  Would your Grandma understand what you do, quickly and easily?
