Three Key Points:
- “The human brain is hard-wired to react to certain structures that we call storytelling, beginning, middle, end.”
- “If a conveyance of information, and we can call that story, is authentic to the world in which the story is taking place and the person who’s telling it, then it’s compelling.”
- “In the context of a brand, the idea is connection. You don’t just want a customer or a supporter, you want a zealot. And that’s where you find them, when you’ve connected. Not just convinced, but connected.”
