Introduction

I travel the world and meet 'People with a Vision' and 'Brands with a Purpose'. 

I write their stories with a wow-factor and stickiness... to facilitate storytelling.

The stories are shared with influencers worldwide... by means of a book, ebook and blog.

I believe stories can inspire people and change behavior.

So by sharing the good stories, I contribute to making the world a better place.  ;-)
