Everybody loves a good story, right? We especially love stories that come from a place of authenticity and sincerity. Jerome Deroy (connect with Jerome!) knows all about this – his company, Narativ, helps companies realize the power of storytelling.

With employees working predominantly in remote environments, stories are the way to build and retain teams.
