Uncorking a Story

Hosted ByMike Carlon

Stories influence, teach and inspire us, but what about the storytellers who create them? Uncorking a Story profiles storytellers to uncover how their background and life experiences influence the stories they create. We learn what motivates them, their path to success, and what fuels them to keep creating. It all starts by asking one simple question, where does your story begin? Welcome to uncorking a story.

Take That, Professor! With Donna Loughlin

Share the goodness!

Today’s guest on Uncorking a Story, Donna Loughlin, and I were both involved in the early days of the 90s dot.com bubble, in similar roles. I was working to understand what consumers wanted in digital technologies and she was tasked with uncorking stories from the tech leaders of the day. We take a walk down memory lane, and so much more, in this episode of Uncorking a Story.

Meet Donna Loughlin

Donna Loughlin is known for her work with futurists and innovators as the founder of LMGPR. She has launched more than 500 companies, taking them from stealth to market leaders since forming her agency in 2002. Donna is also the host of BeforeItHappened, a leading narrative podcast featuring visionaries and the moments, events, and realizations that inspired them to change our lives for the better. She excels in the realm of storytelling, and uses those skills to propel new companies into the mainstream. 

Key Topics:

  1. How Donna’s curiosity for peoples’ stories was cultivated from a young age
  2. The different story angles Donna uses to craft compelling narratives for tech founders
  3. The evolution of the Silicon Valley tech scene
  4. Bringing innovative products to life in emerging tech markets
  5. How a professor once told her she’d never make it as a journalist, only to have his resume wind up in her pile years later
