THIS IS OUR STORY
Meet the Founder of Story As...
Adam Davidson spent several years working with a group of economists and business school professors at Harvard and MIT, coming up with a framework for the twenty-first century economy.
Together, they concluded that the economy had, essentially, flipped. In the 20th century, the fundamental business strategy was commoditization: to make the same stuff over and over again, faster and faster, cheaper and cheaper.
This created commoditized companies with little distinction between them filled with employees who were commodities, each trying to be a carbon copy of the other.
That commoditized economy led to massive scale and growth. But it petered out.
Now, the core economic engine is differentiation: each company and each employee need to show their unique characteristics. Not what makes them the same but what makes them different.
A lot of companies are doing this. They have their own distinct culture, they create distinct products and services.
But a lot of them, frankly, suck at telling their story.
Struggling to convey what makes you unique?
We can help.
WE ARE THE BEST AT TWO THINGS:
Crafting story. We have some of the world's greatest storytellers in print, audio, video. We have worked at the highest levels of storytelling: creating NPR's Planet Money, writing for the New York Times and The New Yorker, working on Academy-Award-winning films, like The Big Short.
Learning Design. Our partnership with Jackrabbit LX gives us deep expertise and experience in understanding how to best convey complex information to a targeted audience so they learn it deeply.
Together, we can help companies take control of their story and how it lands for the people who matter most.
