Discover Rick Tumlinson’s pitch:

“In today’s world we are bombarded by messages, triggers and brands that are trying to get your attention, inspire you to action and create in you the passion to take whatever action those putting out such messages want you to take.

In organizations that are internet based and often spread around the world, it can be easy for companies to paint a picture of themselves to their employees, to build the structures of a strong company, and yet to fail to inspire – especially if the actions needed today will not bear fruit tomorrow, but instead will require toil and unity over a long horizon. So what can you do to paint a vision of your own that reaches into your entire team, to inspire the passion needed to overcome both external and internal obstacles and to drive your company forward to success?”
