This is the second part of our two-part series with Phil Eich about storytelling. The first episode was the why, and here is the how! This episode is one of the most actionable we’ve ever recorded—it has all you need to go out and start telling your own community’s story.
Phil Eich is the founder of Storyville, an agency born in Saginaw dedicated to telling the stories of our cities to cultivate community pride, support small businesses, and attract and retain talent and investment.
