Nomination Title: The Owner & The Coach

Date this production was first released/publicly viewed: July 1, 2016.

Briefly describe this entry's communications objectives and how it met those objectives (up to 200 words):

Our client, ActionCOACH, has a vision of a world in which every business is profitable and operates without the owner’s daily participation. In that world, owners work “ON,” rather than “IN,” their businesses and receive dividend checks rather than paychecks. The first half of the video shows owners that their problems are not unique. This is an important first step because small business owners feel isolated and stressed and believe others are thriving while they are failing. The second half of the video lays out a clear path from suffering to success. The message is: “Others have done it. You can too, and here’s how.”

The video, written as a poem, conveys the message in under three minutes, which is almost impossible to do in a conversation. When owners realize they are not alone and that there is a vision and a logical process to achieve it, they are inspired to change their lives. 2017 ADDY award winner 2nd place winner, ActionCOACH Business Coaching Global Video Competition, Johannesburg, South Africa, August, 2016. New client quote: “My partner didn’t understand our need for a coach. I showed her the video, and she said ‘I get it now."
