Today's powerful stories podcast guest is Lou Johnson, a publishing industry icon who believes in the power of storytelling, and most importantly, the power of connection. Lou believes in the power of sharing stories to build empathy, understanding and connection.
Human beings are wired for story, which is why she is passionate about bringing visibility to the unique stories of individuals and organisations to bring clarity to their vision and purpose. As a publisher and a leader she is particularly interested in breaking down taboos and inclusion. She is able to identify, enhance and position the narrative of a book, a brand or a business to connect with its audience powerfully and authentically.
We met over a coffee date and built a strong bond and I have had the pleasure of watching Lou thrive under unexpected circumstances in 2022. She is a woman who is powerfully connected to purpose and lives her life anchored to her truth.
