  1. Interesting interview. Storytelling is a tricky thing and very difficult to set up. Lots of companies have nothing to share about their DNA, or at least something really interesting. Anyway, social media is a good way to start conversations with customers. Thanks again for sharing.

  2. I agree that tapping into the customer stories that are already out is a great way to enhance your social media strategy. Thanks for the video!
