Doug Keeley’s clients are unanimous in saying he has hooked them onto business storytelling because stories work. After spending more than 3 decades in the global communications industry, he saw that facts, broad statements, and busy slides were replacing great stories in business. And it wasn’t working.
Leaders weren’t connecting with their people. Sales people were just “showing up and throwing up” information on prospects. HR was struggling to attract and keep their best people.
So he founded Stories Rule! to help clients use stories to power sales, leadership and culture.
Over the last 15 years, Doug has inspired hundreds of thousands of people through his keynotes, conference hosting, workshops, and training. His clients include Accenture, HP, IBM, Merck, Microsoft, Pepsi, Starbucks, and TDBank, as well as SMBs, startups, educators, and public servants.
He is the author of the book, The Mark of a Leader and is an inductee into Canada’s Meetings Hall of Fame.
