BRANDSTORYNOW.COM: LIVE MARKETING TRAINING EXPERIENCE | Launched at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music in 2016, BrandStoryNow is a live marketing training experience tailored for classical artists and organizations. This deep-dive yet digestible and interactive training evolved from founder James Mowdy's work with The Santa Fe Opera. BrandStoryNow's philosophy is simple: classical artists, like small businesses, are brands; like a brick and mortar business or a startup, they must establish unique brand identity, compelling brand storytelling, and a winning marketing strategy with return. ​
