Employee satisfaction leads to customer satisfaction and loyalty, according to Disney executive Bruce Kimbrell, who offered strategies for strengthening workplace culture through storytelling at the sold-out NEW Northern California learning event, May 2, 2014.

"People can feel perfection,” Kimbrell told more than 450 NEW members and supporters at the Blackhawk Museum in Danville. To enhance the employee experience, Disney uses powerful storytelling to communicate with a focus on structure, flow, character, tone and mood of the message.
