Humanizing Brands With Stories And Comedy

Mitch JoelPosted by

Episode #396 of Six Pixels of Separation – The Twist Image Podcast is now live and ready for you to listen to.

Welcome to episode #396 of Six Pixels Of Separation – The Twist Image Podcast. He’s been on Conan O’Brien, David Letterman, Saturday Night Live and more. His name is Tim Washer and he’s currently working on social media for Cisco. He’s one of the funniest people that I know… and one of the sharpest minds in digital marketing. Beyond being a Webby-nominated video producer and corporate humorist, Tim also worked on IBM‘s amazing Smarter Planet campaign and works as a keynote speaker and event emcee as well. What makes him so fascinating is how he blends comedy, social media, video production and storytelling to humanize brands. He’s an all-around great guy and whenever we’re together (which isn’t often enough!), I always learn a ton about writing and storytelling. I think you will as well. Enjoy the conversation…

  1. Being an Aussie, I had not heard of Tim Washer, but on reading the post, went to Youtube to see if it maybe worth spending 45 minutes listening to the podcast.
    Answer, YES IT WILL.
    Thanks Mitch.

  2. A great and inspiring interview by Mitch Joel with Tim Washer about Tim’s career in strategic marketing and comedy (and how they both can both benefit each other).
    The interview also brings out the career concept of “embracing the squiqqle” from Mitch’s book, CTRL ALT Delete. Tim gives an honest and open portrayal of how his career success wasn’t linear (but he persevered and is succeeding in doing work that’s meaningful to him).
    Thank you for sharing and publishing this great podcast.?
