"What's your story?"
That's a question that goes straight to the core.
So, let's dive into our own story, shall we?
Picture this: two dream jobs - one a high-end fashion designer and the other a commercial pilot.
That's what we were doing before this.
But that changed. Why?
Both of us had a big realization that hit us like a ton of bricks.
"Ah f*ck, this isn't it."
When we, Lila Morency and Robert Bean, came together to co-found IMPACT, we had this burning desire to shake things up, to bring radical change to a world that's been lacking in humanity and stuck in those outdated, inauthentic narratives.
We couldn't help but notice that the fashion and aviation sectors, firsthand, were drowning in unsustainability and toxicity. It seeped not only through the fast-fashion dyes but also into the very culture and environments these industries operated in.
We both thought, "Surely, there's got to be a better way." And not just for fashion and aviation, but for ALL industries out there.
That's when we quit our dream jobs and dove head first into the Science of Storytelling.
We discovered how narratives shape our lives and influence the choices we make. And that's when it hit us: storytelling holds the key to solving the problems we face in today's world.
And video strategy? Well, it's the tool that brings those solutions to life.
Think about it. New technologies and innovative solutions won't go far if people don't connect with them, if they don't align with the vision.
That's where the power of storytelling comes in.
Without an authentic narrative and compelling storytelling at the heart of their communication, without a well-crafted strategy to reach the right audience at the right time, their message risks getting lost or ignored.
Sadly, most brands fail to answer that important question - "What's your story?"
They struggle to articulate it in a way that truly resonates with their audience, that sparks a connection.
IMPACT. was born to help sustainable companies craft their brand's storytelling strategy.
We believe in the power you have to reshape the narrative and make a real impact on the world.
Let's join forces and tell your story, one that is truly extraordinary, together.
