The process begins by immersing ourselves in a client’s space and digesting all we can about their business needs and their vision for their company.

The 'Stone Soup' Philosophy

1. To gain support of your audience, you must win their hearts and minds.

​2. The key to winning hearts and minds is to ignite the imagination.

3. The best way to ignite the imagination is to tell an engaging story.

As a 'reformed' attorney turned marketing/communications veteran, I have built a career around digesting complex fact patterns and communicating them inline with the necessities of a particular situation or audience.  

 

Specifically, I spent 10 years building a world class marketing department for a key player in the digital media space, working to define a continually evolving position in a uniquely fluid industry.
 
Along the way, I have led teams of
brand & product marketers, creative designers, public relations specialists, event planners, content managers and social media experts - always defining and achieving cross-divisional sales/revenue targets and brand awareness goals.

Stone Soup Communications is the manifestation of my own drive to help companies hone and tell their stories in resource-efficient ways that truly move the needle and deliver results.

"The longest journey begins with a first step."     - Lao Tzu

The Power of a Story

While the classic folk story, Stone Soup, has been told in countless variations and across any number of cultures through the years, the essential elements are always the same:

1. A stranger enters a town whose people have become isolated from each other and who are loathe to share their resources with one another, let alone with a passing stranger.

2. Without asking for any assistance, the stranger sets up a huge pot in the middle of town, boils water and drops in one stone.

3. When asked by a curious (and suspicious) town's person, the stranger explains that he is making a 'stone soup' that will be fit for a king and that, while he needs nothing, the town's person is free to join him -- of course, since he will be sharing the wonderful soup, if he has a carrot or two to add...

4. This interaction is repeated many times over, with each new soup eater explaining to yet another potential soup eater the story of the soup fit for a king and how they are free to share in it, if only they add a little something to the pot -- celery, onions, salt, beef, etc...

5. Soon enough, all the town's people have opened up their cupboards (and their hearts), and they are all thrilled to be enjoying this royal meal that came from a simple stone.

"Imagine that! Soup from a stone!"
