Story Living: How to Tell Stories that Inspire with Megan Fielding

In this conversation Bart speaks with Megan Fielding, Vice President, Brand and Culture Communications at Nutrien, about Story Living. Megan explains how you can turn clarity of purpose into powerful stories that inspire employees, customers, stakeholders and yourself. She shares how the concept has guided her own career, leading her to choose -- and leave -- jobs that allowed her to connect more deeply with what mattered to her. She then outlines how she is helping apply this concept at Nutrien, a global fertilizer company, to connect a global community with the work the business does to feed the world. Megan's story provides practical and relevant ways to weave meaningful stories into work and life.
