What business services could you offer IIBN members?
I started out as a journalist with an extensive career working for major employers on both sides of the Atlantic. I later retrained to become an immersive content writer, digital storyteller and investor pitching coach after securing an MA in Screenwriting (Distinction). My workshops on content creation use story techniques from ancient folklore to modern movies. All of these mediums have proven the unparalleled power of a well-told tale in engaging and persuading others down through the ages. I also coach start-ups on pitching to investors, using the power of storytelling, among other techniques.
What business services could you require from IIBN members occasionally/regularly?
Website improvement. Social media campaigns.
Tell us something interesting or unusual about yourself.
I've gotten to interview a host of actors and directors as a film reporter, including everyone's favourite fictional president Jed Bartlet, aka Martin Sheen. Years later I secured a press pass - and a front row seat - for Barack Obama's first inauguration. https://www.flickr.com/photos/bmacintyre/sets/72157613446309696
