"We all need to use storytelling to build relationships, credibility, trust and influence," says Ginny Pulos, Founder and President of Ginny Pulos Communications. "Companies are overlooking a vast asset, sitting right in their own offices.  Everyone can be powerful in building the focus, the brand, the persuasion, the sparkle, the team and the client's goals."

The second installment in PR Newswire's Storytelling Google+ Hangout series will build upon the foundation laid in the first hangout, Using Storytelling to Drive Business Goals, in which Blair Caplinger of Telling Media and Ben Zenick of Zencos explained the importance of the "why" factor as a point of differentiation and how to transform executives into Chief Storytelling Officers. Drawing from her background in speech and media training, Ms. Pulos will explain the steps necessary to shift storytelling from executive ownership to a pervasive company culture.

For more details and to join the Hangout:

The Hangout will illustrate how a comprehensive brand narrative can inspire, persuade and, ultimately, drive sales.  Examples of brands and executives who have used storytelling to inform the market and increase consumer engagement will be featured by Ms. Pulos.
