Storytelling Versus Strategic Storytelling

Over the past year, I have had the pleasure of working David Baker of ReCourses. David specializes in providing counsel and guidance exclusively to marketing firms and has worked with hundreds of small to mid-size agencies around the world. He is a great listener, an insightful coach and a damn good photographer, which I suppose has little to do with him being a good listener or coach, but still warrants a mention. I have one of his pieces hanging in my apartment. But I digress…

The misuse of storytelling…

Throughout his professional travels, David has been hearing more and more about storytelling; and the more he heard, the more he began to suspect that a lot of people were misusing the term. Accordingly, he asked if I would write a guest blog post on the subject, and I was honoured and flattered to oblige. In this post, the distinction I draw is around the difference between storytelling and strategic storytelling as we practice it at BB&Co. The former often involves telling any ol’ story, where as the latter involves finding, crafting and telling the right story.
