We're Talking Brand Stories 

As we kick off Season 03 of the podcast I'm joined again by one of my favourite guests Gabrielle Dolan. Last season Ral gave us an exclusive on the title of her upcoming book and I vowed to bring her back when it was launched to hear all about it. 

Ral believes that Brand Stories have a magnetic quality that attracts and retains customers and helps engage employees. I give her a call to learn more.
