GatherRound

GatherRound Ideas that become stories become movements. GatherRound is a marketing firm, specializing in strategic storytelling. At Campfire, we're leading the charge in returning to the essence of storytelling, because that's how humans communicate best.

That’s why we created Persuasion Design, and that's why we apply it to both presentation strategy and marketing creative. Because stories stick.

Mission: Our mission is to improve the way ideas are sold in modern business, and we're starting with presentations.

Attention, Students: Put Your Laptops Away

“Desirable difficulty.” As true today as when it was coined by Robert Bjork in 1994.

If you want your audience to remember - or believe in - something, make them work for it.

Researchers Pam Mueller and Daniel M. Oppenheimer found that students remember more via taking notes longhand rather than on a laptop. It has to do with what happens when you're forced to slow down.

Better Storytelling Through Chemistry

Ice cream, orgasms, confetti and Ellen. Can PowerPoint do all that? This blog can, and so can you.

You have an idea. You need your audience to act. Wouldn't it be nice if you had their undivided attention? Wouldn't it be great if they were prepared to act on your challenges? The best storytellers know how to put their audiences in that state, thanks to cortisol.

At only 50 years old, account planning is a relatively young ad agency discipline. Yet two thirds of strategists fear their role will become extinct due to "a lack of craft training," according to WARC. Are you responsible for strategy at your agency? Are presentations vital to your craft? What are you doing to improve?

It was our privilege to address PRSA's Tulsa chapter. A spirited group of professionals, engaged in improving themselves professionally, and now the newest soldiers in the fight against deck addiction. Welcome to #LifeAfterDecks

In a world....where boring presentations prevail and disengaged audiences abound...a new way to convey ideas through storytelling was shared with a large group of communicators who will rid Tulsa of boring PowerPoint decks one office at a time thanks to today's speaker Eric Harris of GatherRound!

Thank you, Eric, for showing us there IS #LifeAfterDecks!

Pictured here with programming chair Marcia Brookey and Silver Link event chair Carissa Bratschun.

We hope to see you back at Tulsa Country Club July 12 with a dive into social and digital trends with ONEOK, Inc.'s Erin Jacobs Holland!

But before you jump on the storytelling bus, make sure you're aware o...

Our love-hate relationship with PowerPoint

"Because PowerPoint let more people share their ideas, it exposed the failings of middle management and inadvertently led to an exodus of people from these roles."

Thanks to Shaun for sharing.

Blamed for a rise in passive behaviour, and a decline in curiosity among young people, this software is divisive – loved by some, hated by others – but has it had its day?

Pretty awesome of CallisonRTKL to share our article on Campfire client Sarah Kimes. This supremely talented speaker credits Campfire with helping her prep for her most successful presentation, but we're pretty sure she was on 🔥🔥🔥 before we showed up.
