A few weeks ago a blog post caught my eye, and sparked this conversation with Roshan Grossman about “experience communications.” The idea is this: Storytelling is a great way to grab attention and influence people, but a key ingredient is missing if we focus on the story itself. What about the experience behind it?
In this conversation, Roshan shares some examples of experience communications in action.
Formerly a senior communications consultant and then manager of internal communications for Sun Life Financial Canada, Roshan now owns Hot Quill Communications. Look for her blog at QuillandCurio.com.
