If you want to know all there is about motors, you go to a mechanic.

For all there is to know about taxation, you’d go to an accountant.

For storytelling expertise, you’d go to a 3 year old (wouldn’t you?)

Small children are much like our customer audience at times – they’re not interested in what we have to say unless there’s a reward in it for them.

So why not look to a company who have been captivating audiences like this for over 25 years to see what insight they give into effective storytelling.
