Today we’d like to introduce you to Josh Campbell.
Hi Josh, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I have been a professional storyteller for over a decade. I joined Spillit at our first event. I eventually was made head storyteller and creative director. The best part of my job is helping people tell their stories and find their voices.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Storytelling has always been in demand.
The challenge was to get people to see storytelling as more than a niche event.
Trying to expand the audience’s expectation of what a storytelling event can be has always been the goal. Once we get people in they usually are fans for life.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I am a storytelling but I love being a story facilitator even more.
Spillit workshops are where I have the most fun. Taking a group of people with a common goal and showing them how they can use their individual voices to reach the outcomes that the group is seeking is a very rewarding experience.
I have done workshops with FedEx, International Paper, UT Medical School, Rhodes College, and many nonprofit organizations.
What sort of changes are you expecting over the next 5-10 years?
I think more and more companies are looking to tell their story to improve their brand.
For individuals building a personal brand through storytelling will be vital to standing out in a crowd. I see storytelling on all platforms growing a lot in the future.
