BOULDER, Colo., Oct. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Catapult PR-IR (www.catapultpr-ir.com), a boutique public relations firm specializing in serving b-to-b technology companies, today announced its Strategic Narrative Workshop offering. Through a proven one-day session, Catapult leads companies through a discovery process that focuses on industry mega-trends, market perceptions/misperceptions, vision for the industry's future and new category and/or process contributions. Catapult then delivers a unique, industry-focused narrative that rides above "storytelling" – serving as a powerful strategy to drive all forms of marketing and to stand apart from competitors, gain positive awareness, and align an organization around a singular, experience-based narrative.
The workshop and messaging framework are part of the Strategic Narrative Marketing process that Catapult developed based on decades of PR and messaging experience. To learn more, visit: http://www.catapultpr-ir.com/strategic-narrative-messaging-workshop/.
The agency also offers a guidebook, A Practical Guide to Strategic Narrative Marketing, that provides a step-by-step process marketers and CEOs can follow to define and shape industry categories. It is available on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Practical-Guide-Strategic-Narrative-Marketing/dp/1478777575
"We have successfully helped companies – large and small – through this approach over the past 17 years," said Terri Douglas, co-founder and principal at Catapult PR-IR. "It focuses companies away from just talking about themselves and instead concentrates on their industry, how they can contribute and about a greater cause that rallies their employees, partners and all stakeholders together. It's helped companies raise money, shift or create market positions and successfully be bought."
Catapult's Strategic Narrative Workshop starts by researching competitors and digging into industry mega-trends and disruptive factors. Catapult then facilitates a one-day, on-site workshop with key executives that reveals a company's view of the industry and its category vision based on expertise and experience. It dives into market dynamics/trends, popular industry perceptions/mis-perceptions, industry challenges and opportunities, and possible new categories and/or best-practice processes. Catapult then compiles and analyzes the input from workshop participants and delivers a 100-percent unique industry narrative that focuses on industry vision and leadership. For many, it serves as the "umbrella message" companies find hard to articulate.
