The Proven Story Cycle System

The most obvious result of getting your brand story straight is to improve your marketing and grow your business. You will overcome division, confusion, turmoil, fragmentation and apathy about your brand by helping you:

  1. Grow your product or service offering as you define its position, promise, personality and purpose through a brand story that aligns with your mission and resonates with your audiences: customers, donors, supporters, investors, employees and vendors
  2. Grow team camaraderie as you build consensus around the foundational brand narrative everyone can live into and prosper from
  3. Grow your customer base by connecting their personal journeys with your brand story to be instantly relevant, useful and empowering
  4. Grow sales volume and ritualistic use of your product or service by serializing your brand story through your sales programs, advertising, content marketing and customer experience
  5. Grow your brand legend by providing all of your audiences with story elements to ignite word of mouth marketing as they become your brand evangelists
  6. Grow as a business leader by knowing how to share your origin/founder story that inspires people about your vision


Achieve a greater return on your marketing investment as you…

  • Lead more effective marketing across all channels
  • Create more consistent messaging
  • Capitalize on consumer trends
  • Enjoy heightened brand relevancy
  • Increase your customer interaction
  • Improve loyalty and retention
  • Inspire employee engagement
  • Build leadership consensus around your brand story

And that starts by getting your brand story straight through our Business of Story workshops.

People Who Love Working With Park

“I thought the content was great!  Your approach to story telling is dead on and the supporting materials and tools I think would be very helpful to those trying to hone their story telling (selling, writing, counseling and coaching, etc.) skills.”   – Cliff Woodbury, Sr. VP. Marketing & Communications, Ewing Irrigation and Landscape Supply


“The Business of Story workshop was full of valuable information about the importance and usefulness of stories in many aspects of business. I attended this workshop for multiple reasons – to become a better storyteller in presentations, to use stories in my marketing and to help in writing a business book in a story format. Park provided a user-friendly framework for creating stories that I will be able to use to help with all of those areas. Park’s passion about stories is contagious and inspiring as well. My only complaint is that I wish the workshop was longer!”   – Donna Dobrovich, Leadership Coach


“I recently attended a taster version of Park’s storytelling class. Loved the model and plan to apply for my business.” – Lori Severson, Board member at Girls Rule Foundation


Park introduced his Story Cycle Process to a cross-functional team preparing a situational analysis for our strategy development process. The process is truly powerful, but without Park’s coaching and insights we would not have delivered a transformational outcome. The team presented their findings and the response was overwhelmingly positive. Our leadership commented not only on the thoroughness of the research, but the creativity of the delivery and engagement with the audience. We continue to use Park’s process to breakout of the corporate-speak and engage our employees in telling the story of our company. – Dan Killoren, Senior Planning Analyst – Strategy, Salt River Project
