Ron Ploof
Communicating through story
Seriesthumb screen shot 2016 11 28 at 2.28.30 pm

Ron is a professional communications strategist with specialties in technical communications, business storytelling, and social media distribution. During his career in high-tech electronics, he’s designed control systems, provided pre-sales support as an EDA applications engineer and AE manager, and was responsible for over $30 million in engineering services sales as a business development manager.

But his first love has always been to communicate through story structure. He once used a Hula Hoop to demonstrate a hemispherical resonating gyroscope to a large audience, explained mixed-signal simulation techniques using Lego® bricks and Velcro®, and sold professional services by telling stories rather than spraying prospects with bullet points.

Ron is the creator of The StoryHow™ PitchDeck, a deck of playing cards that helps business communicators convert their ideas, messages, and presentations into memorable narratives.
