Meet your instructor.


Marcus Andrews is the Director of Product Marketing at Pendo.io. Before joining Pendo.io, he was the Product Marketing Group Lead at HubSpot and prior to that, he spent almost four years at Google. He’s been a solid storyteller all his life, but it wasn’t until he developed the Narrative Design process that he was able to codify, replicate, and consistently create amazing stories. 

Throughout this masterclass, he’ll be sharing the secret sauce behind his repeatable process so that you too can be recognized as a great storyteller.


"This course made me realize how much I’ve been stuck in the marketing storytelling rut of 'problem/solution/we’re the best.' Marcus does a great job of outlining the process to flip the conversation to take the focus off of your company and focus on your customers to tell a story that will break through and stand out even in the most crowded markets. The class comes with a great set of tools and a great real-world case study. I highly recommend."

"I thoroughly enjoyed this course!! It was sooo helpful. Not only were you able to dig further into the process that he went through at HubSpot but he also ran through a case study at another company he worked with and gave clear examples of how to execute on something like this internally and externally. I can't wait to use this with my own company!"
