How to Use Storytelling to Brand Your Business

KEYNOTE SPEECH FOR: Large Corporations, Small Business Owners, Non Profits, Retailers

People are bombarded with messages all day long. But studies have shown that the ones they remember are the ones that have a good story behind them. In fact, people are 20 times more likely to remember your company or product if it has a good story. The trick is to find what’s compelling about your company or product, and weave the features and benefits into the narrative.

As the gatekeeper for an international Academy Award winning production company, Julie dishes the insider secrets on how to construct a great story. She’s worked in the development of over 1,000 scripts and heard numerous pitches requesting funding from $50,000 to 5 million dollars.

 “Diversity for the Bottom Line”
Turning Differences Into Dollars

KEYNOTE SPEECH FOR: Large corporations, science labs, small businesses, non-profits

When most people think of diversity, it usually only goes as far as skin color. But for a company or organization to really profit from diversity, it needs to go deeper than that. Studies have shown that organizations that have a team of people with different industry backgrounds, different social and economic backgrounds, genders, cultures, attitudes, and belief systems tend to innovate faster and more efficiently than just having a team composed of racial diversity.

Failure to create highly diversified teams often results in GroupThink, a psychological phenomenon where the need for group harmony outweighs rational decision-making and stunts innovation.

Studies in science labs have proven that the lab teams with the most diversity in all areas created the most innovative projects, and exhausted all possibilities in problem solving. 

Attendees will learn:

  • How extreme diversity generates the most original ideas
  • Why the definition of diversity needs to change
  • How to educate your staff and HR reps in a new definition of diversity
  • How organizations who embrace all diversity will outperform the competition 

“It’s Never Too Late to Accomplish a Dream”
Having a Sense of Purpose is the Key to Longevity

KEYNOTE SPEECH FOR: Seniors, Women’s Events, Entrepreneurs, Over 50 Job Seekers

Remember that dream you had back when you were a kid? You know, that dream in the back of your mind that you always wanted to accomplish but never got around to it? You were always too busy, too tired, too afraid. The responsibilities of daily life took over and you slowly forgot about it. You put that dream away and now you feel like it’s just too late.

Well, that’s what Grandma Moses thought too as she picked up a paint brush at the age of 76! And she’s not the only one.

Julie’s keynote speech, “It’s Never Too Late to Accomplish a Dream” has wowed audiences like the International Positive Aging Conference and the Arizona Creativity Conference. She was also the closing keynote for the senior games in CA.

The most exciting compliment came from a set of 90 year old twins who said they had been inspired to write their life story after Julie’s speech.

Here’s what your audience will learn:

  • Why you need to be challenged to keep you motivated
  • Why having a sense of purpose is the key to longevity
  • How you can have a stronger brain/immune system connection
  • Why the older brain is more resilient and adaptable

“What Great Leaders Know About Storytelling”
How to Draw People in With Your Message

KEYNOTE SPEECH FOR: Non-profits, executives, education, women’s events, public relations

People are 20 times more likely to remember facts if they are woven around a compelling story. Great leaders know this. They also know you have to tell those stories with true passion that comes from the heart. Great leaders know that if you want to get people to give you money, vote for you, green light your projects, or buy your products, you have to have a good story behind it.

As the gate keep for an international Academy Award winning production company, Julie dishes the insider secrets on how to construct a great story. She’s worked in the development of over 1,000 scripts and heard numerous pitches, requesting funding from $50,000 to 5 million dollars.

Your attendees will learn:

  • How to get people to rally around your cause
  • Why people need heroes and where you can find them
  • How to get people to remember and repeat your stories

“Are You a Missionary or a Visionary?”
Combining Purpose With Action to Change the World

KEYNOTE SPEECH FOR: Non-profits, religious organizations

A visionary is someone who comes up with great ideas. A missionary is someone who carries out those great ideas. Where visionaries are the thinkers, missionaries are the doers.

A visionary with lots of great ideas who never does anything about them won’t get very far. And a missionary with no great ideas also won’t get very far.

But if you combine great ideas with action you’ll be a force to be reckoned with.

This keynote is for non-profits and religious organizations that want to inspire their volunteers and congregations to take action based on a common passion and purpose.

Here’s what your attendees will learn:

  • How to generate passion in your team
  • How to write a mission statement and really live it
  • How to get others to believe in your vision

As an inventor, innovation expert, and international business owner, Julie has been both a visionary and a missionary, leading a team of distributors around the world in a common goal. She will inspire your audience to take action with their own teams.

“It’s Never Too Late to be Creative”
Finding Your Purpose at Any Age

KEYNOTE SPEECH FOR: Seniors, Women’s events, Spiritual events, Creativity Conferences

They used to say you couldn’t teach an old dog new tricks. But scientists are finding out that not only can you learn at any age, you can also grow new brain cells. And one away to do that is with creativity. Studies have shown that people who have a sense of purpose live longer. Creativity gives you a sense of purpose that’s endless.

Julie is a creativity and innovation expert, has been in TV and radio shows around the world, and has been a creativity keynote speaker for the senior games and at international senior creativity conferences.

In Julie’s inspirational and educational speech, she clears up the myths, and demonstrates how taking creative risks can help you build the confidence to discover the hidden talents you never knew you had. She gives you a series of techniques you can use in your own life that can set you on a path of discovery and growth through creativity.

What attendees will learn:

  • How an older brain has the same capacity to learn as a younger brain
  • How being creative can help you live longer
  • How creativity helps you heal from loss
  • How having a sense of purpose will extend your life

“Innovative Branding"
Combining Business Storytelling With Innovation to Create a Unique and Powerful Message

KEYNOTE SPEECH FOR: Corporations, Small Business

If you look at a brand as being “style and substance”, then storytelling is the style, the message you communicate to the public, and substance is the products or services that back it up. There are plenty of examples of brands that told a good story, but didn’t have the substance to back it up, or didn’t innovate to keep their position in the market. And there are also examples of companies who had great, innovative products, but didn’t know how to tell a story that got people’s attention. It’s the companies and brands that know how to do both that dominate the market and have staying power. This 4 hour workshop shows you how to accomplish both.

Julie comes from a background in the TV & film industry and had had jobs as diverse as commercial actor and TV host to TV/film distributor/writer, so she knows the creative, as well as the business side, and customizes most of her speeches for the audience she’s speaking to.

She will deliver a dynamic, inspiring, and entertaining speech that is also full of useful tips for anyone looking to create their best life. Corporations will benefit from her knowledge of innovation and entrepreneurial thinking to expand their markets and grow sales. She’s an underdog who’s bootstrapped her way to success from nothing and loves to inspire others to do the same.

“Sparking Innovation in Healthcare”

How to Turn Your Employees Into Problem SolversKEYNOTE FOR: Nurses, Doctors, Healthcare professionals, Pharmaceutical companiesSome of the most important innovations in the healthcare industry were discovered by accident, such as penicillin.

These are simple ideas and ways of thinking that will turn your whole staff into innovation machines. It doesn’t take any extra time away from their jobs, but instead is a problem solving mindset that will greatly improve your bottom line and employee morale.

Julie Austin has trained scientists in the healthcare industry from around the world. As an inventor and patent owner herself, she knows how to instill the innovation mindset that will have your employees generating new ideas quickly.

Julie was very professional and pleasant to work with. She spent time researching our industry on her own so she could customize her content. She’s truly a creative individual.

Linh Vu

It was a pleasure having Julie speak at our ASD International Retail Conference in Las Vegas. The retail and wholesale small business owners appreciated her topic “Using Innovation for Competitive Advantage”. The interactive creativity exercises helped get the audience involved, and demonstrated that creativity in business is definitely the way to beat the competition at their own game. I would highly recommend her speaking services.

Working World magazine - Catherine Rhodes

Julie spoke at the Working World Job Fair and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Her seminar to an audience of job-seekers was both informative and inspiring. We loved her sassy slideshow, which was both entertaining and instructive. Truly, it was a delight to work with Julie and I would highly recommend her as a speaker for any event.
