More than ever, there is one thing that truly separates many brands and companies today - that one thing is STORY. It’s no longer just what people buy, it’s what they buy into. When it comes to connecting, teaching, influencing, and inspiring others, a story will make whatever you say more impactful. Throughout history it has always been true that whoever tells the best story, wins. It’s like the old Native American proverb, “Those who tell the stories rule the world.”

 

Nationally recognized storyteller, keynote speaker and author, Shane Meeker, knows the challenges that businesses and brands experience as they try to stand out in a crowded marketplace. After years of research and study in the film industry he created a way to take his favorite movies, books and TV shows and apply their story methods to the business and branding world. In fact, he often tells audiences that you can solve almost any business problem with what works in Star Wars (don’t worry, he will explain how).

Shane is a 23 year veteran at the Procter & Gamble Company where he is the Corporate Storyteller & Company Historian. Outside of P&G he has been presenting his StoryMythos content for over 13 years at hundreds of brands and conferences across the globe from Amsterdam to Australia. Shane has been a keynote speaker at great companies like Walt Disney, FedEx, Nike, Whirlpool, Ford, Starwood Hotels, USAA, Anheuser Busch, Columbia Sportswear and Exxon Mobil. He has been featured in numerous books, online articles and interviews discussing how story can be used as a strategic, inspirational and executional tool. He also teaches story as an adjunct professor at the University of Cincinnati and the Illinois Institute of Technology. He has become a keynote favorite for many of his clients who often invite him back for numerous events. His presentations include surprising insights, engaging personal stories, fun movie references and tools that everyone will remember and use long after the event ends. Audiences will leave inspired and excited to use Shane’s content right away.

“StoryMythos is one of a kind! Raccoons, StarWars, and Disney janitors all come together to tell the story of why Story matters. His talk is not only the most fun way to spend time in a conference room, but it is also one of the most actionable ways to better our relationships with key stakeholders and customers, by better doing the one thing that stands the test of time: telling our unique story.”
