At Relish Studio, we like to think of marketing as a relationship-building activity.
And when you’re building a relationship, there’s no better way to slam the breaks on creating a bond than to ask too much too soon.
Today’s guest is David Fakunle, the Executive Director of Womb Work Productions.
His organization is doing some great performing arts work in Baltimore (and the rest of Maryland) to heal and empower youth, families, and communities.
David’s team fosters social change through storytelling, and they have a great handle on what it takes to build trust and relationships across all their stakeholder connections.
One of the most interesting points we discuss is centered around getting in front of the right people at the right time. As you might imagine, it’s easier to engage financial and community support when you come from a place of confidence and patience—and leverage the power of your story to build trust.
This is a really fun episode. I hope you enjoy it!
