I highly recommend MediaStorm’s methodology course. I found it an enlightening and detailed week of study that revealed many new business and storytelling insights to me. The consistent focus on excellence from all of the presenters and staff at MediaStorm is infectious and inspiring. At the end of the week I had many new ideas about how to change and improve my business.
