"The value of storytelling needs to be owned and championed by the CEO if it’s to be embedded in an organizational culture. This course has reminded me that our success — our impact on people’s lives — is tied to our storytelling. Just as importantly, it’s given us tools that will make storytelling a habit, not just an idea."

"At FREOPP, a core part of our strategy is to find ideas that are broadly appealing to rising generations—to skate to where the puck is going—by combining traditionally progressive goals like social mobility with traditionally conservative ones like economic liberty. If you want to expand the reach of your ideas to people who don’t already agree with you, storytelling is key. The Lights, Camera, Liberty workshop has given us a framework for bringing policy ideas to life through storytelling, and needed hands-on experience in film production.”
