Discover how to bring the message of a brand to life in a memorable way with Gerry Nwimo, Take the Mike & Associates and Janet Rawson, professional actor and playwright using theatre-based scenarios to tell stories more effectively and build greater consumer engagement with products.

What you’ll learn:

  • How interactive theatre can help promote brand values more effectively, even within crowded markets
  • How to gain more attention and build relationships with consumers through storytelling
  • Which brand messages can help sway purchasing decisions
  • How to improve efficiency and reduce campaign costs using scenarios that test and refine messages prior to product launch

Today’s markets are crowded so it’s essential to shout above the noise to be heard. But how? With effective storytelling, the values of a brand can be conveyed more quickly and with greater impact.

In October’s Speaker Evening, Gerry Nwimo and Jan Rawson demonstrate how interactive theatre-based scenarios can better engage audiences in a memorable way. Drawing on their vast experience, actors present scenarios that bring brand messages to life, thereby improving audience engagement with products and brands.

This promises to be a lively session that shows how storytelling using theatre can help businesses build deeper engagement with today’s consumers – in turn making it easier for them to make purchasing decisions and, ultimately, boosting sales.
