Telling Emotionally Connective Stories


Session Overview

James Crawley and Brian Merrifield, co-founders of Common Ventures, present on how best to tell a compelling story in a campaign.

They focus on two central principles: make it different and make it human.

By doing this, you can instigate a behavioural change through your message and make your communication effective. The duo explains why we should abide by their two guiding beliefs when presenting a creative message.

Our brains are consumed by difference. So, by communicating something unusual, we are forced to react to it. This makes for an engaging story. Emotional connectivity through human storytelling will also enable your message to have significant cut through.
