About this Event
Necessity is the mother of invention.
In such testing times for families, businesses and other organisations we require all the wit and wisdom available to us to make it through to the other side.
We’ve helped thousands of organisations explain what they do to help them inspire, pitch and sell with ease. We do that using Story Cube, a simple framework that breaks down the key questions you need to consider when building the foundations of your brand. Maybe now’s the time to try it?

Join Story Cube founders Michael Murdoch and Robbie Dale for this webinar where they will introduce how Story Cube – and some time and energy – can help to refine your brand strategy, tell your story and increase sales. There will be lots of time for Q&A so come armed with questions too.

Want to know more about the session?
Successful organisations know how to tell their story. They understand what their audience needs and they understand how to communicate that with a minimum of fuss. That, essentially, is the secret of good branding and how you make more sales.

During this interactive webinar, we’ll teach you the principles behind successful brands, giving you practical tips to shape your own story without spending a small fortune. You’ll get hands-on with your brand, to help you create your strong and succinct story.

Join experts Michael Murdoch and Robbie Dale to understand how you can create an organisation that people fall in love with. Grab the chance to ask questions and see for yourself how you can…

Improve your creative communications
Get more customers and make more sales
Attract the best talent to your team
Pitch to investors with confidence (and much more!)

We are proud of our statistics…

Organisations we have worked with…
Story Cube has been delivered to students, startups, social enterprises, charities and established organisations.

Why should you attend?
One company who attended said,

“I’ve attended several workshops at The British Library and this is by far away the best. Thank you!”.
Our session has been built on over 30 years combined experience working with hundreds of businesses. So whether you’re planning something new, just starting out or looking to refresh an existing brand, we have the framework and plenty of ideas that will help. Your customers want to know the story behind your organisation, what makes it stand out and why they should care. It’s why so many of the best new businesses are putting brand at the heart of everything they do.

Here are 6 ways our Story Cube framework can help you…

In this workshop, you’ll learn…
The six killer questions you need to answer to better tell your story
How to answer the questions via tips, exercises and examples
How to articulate your Value Proposition clearly and succinctly
How to test and validate your ideas about your brand
How to differentiate your brand and stand out from the competition in the real world

We’re here to help entrepreneurs excel…
Over the past decade we’ve worked with businesses, charities and other organisations of all shapes and sizes to develop the structured process we’ll share in this session. The ideas we use are tried and tested and have been chosen because they help organisations thrive. Without a great brand story and strategy, a depressing number of ventures fail before they ever really get going. By asking the right questions we want to stimulate your thinking and make sure that doesn’t happen to you.

Who has attended and tried Story Cube?
We have worked with hundreds of businesses from all sorts of backgrounds including, but not limited to…food & beverage, furniture, technology, creative agencies, co-working spaces, fashion houses, charities, universities, schools, photographers, consultants, property companies, tour companies, edtech, fintech, medtech (any other tech), travel accessories, uniform manufacturers, banks and many more. The oldest business for 700 years old and the youngest was 7 minutes (they chose our workshop to start!).

FAQs
What’s the structure of the session?

This is a practical workshop and you’ll start to build your brand story – and have at least the general outline – by the end of the session. We mix things up with ice-breakers, some theory, Q&A, and group discussion so you can learn in various ways. We believe in interactive sessions so you can dive under the skin of branding and come away with practical learning outcomes.

Should I come with an idea?

Yes, we expect attendees to be working on or within a business, charity, social enterprise already even if it’s just at the planning stage. Without an idea to apply the thinking to this won’t be as valuable as it should be. However, if you don’t have a company or product brand to work on, the same thinking can be applied to your personal brand, which is very important too.

Is this a shortcut to success?

Sadly, no. And if anyone tells you they can offer you such a shortcut they’re either mad, lying (or very soon to be a trillionaire). The workshop teaches you the principles and ‘tricks of the trade’ that, when applied with hard work and perseverance, will give your organisation an unfair advantage over your competition. We are here to share our 30 years of combined knowledge to help you move faster, but it’s not a shortcut.
