Where Stories, Advertising and Creativity Converge

Image

This Week’s Episode:

Years ago, I’m running my software company and gaining some big advertising agencies as clients.

I think, “All right, I need to learn this industry.” And hey, what better place to start than watching Mad Men? I’m hearing so much about it, so surely it should teach me how the industry works, right?

I start watching the show to understand the mindset of an advertising professional. And what do I learn?

Yes, some of those themes on the show are actually spot-on, but being an award-winning creative in the advertising world doesn’t come easy.

I have a ton of respect for those who can come up with such original and memorable content including my special guest today, Arthur Vibert, who not only has won numerous awards, he also knows how to tell a good story!

Why do you bond with the businesses you love? What mistakes can you make when you start incorporating stories into your business advertising? How do the stories you hear and tell yourself and others as you age influence how you continue to live life in your twilight years? Arthur and I get into that and so much more on today’s show!

What you will learn in this episode:

  • How storytelling influences advertising success
  • How to develop a “natural” storytelling ability
  • How ageism plays into storytelling

Who is Arthur Vibert?

Throughout his rich and varied career, Arthur Vibert has had the pleasure of working in the advertising industry in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and London. He co-created the Max Headroom campaign for Coca-Cola, the Saturn “Launch” campaign for the Saturn car’s introduction, and has worked with BMW, Levi’s, and many more. In addition, his work in video production includes collaborations with the likes of Mozilla and Apple.

Currently working as a commercial director and video producer, Arthur more recently has added writing and coaching (and soon, podcasting) to his repertoire. And for the past few years, he has helped creative people aged 40 and up deal with the realities of aging in a culture ill-equipped to understand what to do with them. You can find and follow him on his website and on LinkedIn.

"Storytelling is an art form - and Kymberlee Weil is the master! I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some of the most talented creatives in the world, and Kymberlee is close to the top of that list. She has an uncanny ability to uncover nuance and layers in a story - details often overlooked by the author - and has a deep understanding and connection with the value of well-executed presentation. Working with Kymberlee is more than a journey, it’s a transformative experience."

"Kymberlee helped me tremendously in the weeks leading up to my TED talk and afterwards. I have given hundreds of talks to audiences big and small. But the TED stage is a different beast -- every word matters.Kymberlee kept me on point, focused, and she took the time to figure out what my objectives really were and how to get me there. She is a true master of her trade and I am extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to work with and learn from her."

"I thought I had public speaking down pat. I've addressed audiences all over the world ranging from 62 to 1000 people. But going into that red circle at TEDx, and connecting with a vastly diverse audience is like moving to another planet. Kymberlee made that move effortless and exciting. As a former Green Beret, I have followed a lot of quality leaders and coaches, and I would follow Kymberlee anywhere… Especially into the red circle."
