Jessica Morgan

From Storytelling to Selling

In the most basic sense, this is a story of ignoring everything everyone else has taught you and making your own rules. At the beginning, I said yes to every bit of work I could get, I wore suits, I kept my personal life separate, I put ‘kind regards’ at the bottom of emails, I worked with people I didn’t gel with, I didn’t share too much and I certainly didn’t take my dog to a meeting or order a glass of wine at lunch with a client.

Until I started being who I am. This is about how creating a culture that’s right for you can make you happier, make you want to go to work, get you excited about collaboration and open doors that would have been jammed shut with corporate stuffiness otherwise. Sometimes telling your story and being yourself can lead to sales. Who knew?

About Jessica:

Jessica Morgan is a multi-award-winning designer and illustrator currently based in a brand new studio in Abergavenny. (Basically she got old and moved to the country). For the past seven years, Jess has worked her way through the world of freelance and now runs a small but perfectly formed agency with her husband Dave (animator and epic beard owner), bringing hundreds of brand ideas to life through design and animation that turns the heads of the right people.

When she’s not behind her mac, out meeting clients or speaking at events Jess can be found strolling the mountains trying to ware out her two toddlers and a Labrador.
