Quotes by Faye Liddle-Moore:
“Rather than selling a specific audience, it was about connecting many audiences with content and stories that interest them.”
“Being able to inspire people is probably something that it’s not necessarily something that can be taught.”
“Empathizing with your audience is still the core of what you should be doing with your storytelling.”
