OOPS, DOORS ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED BUT WILL OPEN AGAIN SOON!

Get on the waitlist and be the FIRST to know when we re-open version 3.0 of the program!

We have learned something important as entrepreneurs and digital marketing experts. What's stopping you or anyone from telling the right story is not the soundness of your argument, the logic you share or the quality of the product your selling. It's that you haven't learned how to communicate in a way that helps others imagine a future they cannot see yet.

People like Steve Jobs and Elon Musk were master storytellers. A consistent message through words and actions helped people see their vision so they would join them on the journey. There is no progress with our stories. This has proven to be more important today than ever before as impact businesses are om the rise and how we connect with people is changing dramatically.

No, you don't have to be a HUGE company with a million dollar marketing budget to win BIG today!

Great Stories Drive Big Impact!

"We surveyed 250 social entrepreneurs to determine the top indicators for scaling to $2 million per year and higher and discovered that organizations that grow tend to prioritize the practicing of storytelling at every single level in the organization." Kathleen Kelly Janus, author of Social Startup Success.

What will happen if you don't rethink your marketing strategy for today's world?

We are in the middle of a BUSINESS REVOLUTION!

Without understanding how to tell the right story at the right time to the right people, any startup will struggle to grow and bring to life the future they want to see.

How people shop, learn and interact with brands is changing rapidly which makes it more important than ever to communicate effectively.

We don't just dump these strategies on you and wish you luck.

“First, the video lessons are excellent and well done. Most importantly though, the concept of StoryBridge makes it absolutely logical and easy. Thank you! (Captivate student, founder of Zenaviv)

Stories play the most important role in any digital business ecosystem – the bridge between your brand, happy customers and potential investors. The goal is to cut through the digital noise and attract an engaged community of customers that love what you do.

The Captivate Community is Getting Results and You Will Too!

“”I knew it was essential for me to learn how to tell my story the right way to grow my impact business but we also had an all-or-nothing Kickstarter campaign that we need to raise funds for. Captivate was exactly what I needed! The course and community offer so much priceless knowledge and support. Working directly with Amy gave me the confidence to put my story out there and the incredible support from the team and community helped me push the Kickstarter campaign across the finish line to hit our goal! I can’t recommend it enough.”

— Lois Raats, Founder of Ready2Grow Associates —

“If you are having trouble seeing yourself and your business clearly, the Captivate program Is a great way to build confidence in yourself and your brand. Writing down how we have overcome obstacles to create our own future helps us connect more strongly with clients and offers concrete proof that our work will produce the results clients crave. Since talking about myself has always been the hardest thing for me, I really appreciated the opportunity! Captivate is a helpful program for any Founder, but particularly passion-driven entrepreneurs whose life purpose involves helping clients build a better future. ” 

— Bea Evans, co-founder of Ripple Effect Journeys —

“Crafting and sharing my founder’s story was a fabulous learning experience. What I loved the most during the Captivate program, was the encouragement offered by the 4 founding Captivate team members. Also, the action books provided after each module were very helpful, as well as hearing amazing stories from other team members and examples provided by the team.

Thanks for making me think with my heart as I strive to encourage women to travel with impact!”

— Aoife Collins —

“What I liked the most during Captivate was learning about the different parts of a story, and how there is a framework to use in every story. I could not always join the live sessions but listened to each module (sometimes from my car!), and with lifetime access to the course, I will definitely go back over it all and spend more time on it another time.

To those who hesitate to join, I would say: if you are stuck telling your own story and personalising your marketing, joining Captivate will definitely help. There is loads of content in it, lots of food for thought and practical guidance too, so it was worth the investment.”
