Why we do it?

As a business leader, one of your most critical challenges today is rising above the noise. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 50% of small businesses fail within the first four years. CBInsigths lists the top reasons, including: No Market Need (42%), Get Outcompeted (19%), Lack of Business Model (17%), Poor Marketing (14%) – all of which unequivocally indicate that most businesses don’t know how to articulate, visualize and distribute a compelling business story. With this in mind, VSI’s Visual Storytelling Today is designed to bring you the top thought leaders and experts with new ideas and actionable tips you can apply to your business today.

Rise above the noise

What's the format?

Here, at the Visual Storytelling Institute, we believe in the constant pursuit of innovation, while offering a solid value. With this in mind, Visual Storytelling Today is formatted as a monthly 45-minute video conversation with a notable guest. Post-show, audiences will have access to a video recording of the show (see past shows above). And the audio recording of each episode is then syndicated on podcast networks, and social to maximize reach and on-the-go engagement. Our guests occasionally, also contribute a VSI blog post with a highlights from the recording, including illustratibve visuals. Our audience can also tweet their questions prior and/or during the show by using our official hashtag: #myVSI
