Tell A Story With Purpose - Importance Of Powerful Messaging in 2018

Geologists are natural storytellers and creative problem solvers. In 2018, powerful storytelling is more important than ever. Whether creating your brand, pitching to stakeholders, or posting on social media, you must be a powerful storyteller. The digital world doesn’t move fast… It moves at lightning speed! These days every person has access to a camera. A child can pick up a phone, and edit a polished video with music and titles. But what separates the average joe and jane from what you must do? Tell your story with purpose! Derek will cover his approach to impactful video making and the importance of brand messaging in the modern world.


Derek is the founder of Derek Blanchard Content, a digital marketing company that specializes in brand storytelling. He is a digital photo and video expert, with a mission of ‘telling stories with a purpose’. He has worked with organizations such as AAPG, Moroch Partners, ET Media, and countless oil and gas forums at home and abroad.

He graduated with a BFA in Film+Television from AAU in San Francisco and has created documentaries and advertisements around the world in places like Turkey, Kenya, Syria, and the UAE. Derek grew up in the Middle East as an oil and gas kid. After turning away from his destined path in the industry to become a filmmaker, the oil and gas industry pulled him right back in to do what he loves.
