Cindy Speaker is a filmmaker, story teller and marketing consultant. She is passionate about helping brands find their story and then telling it through the medium of film. According to Speaker, her method of story-driven brand marketing is helping brands transition purchase decisions from the realm of rational thought and price shopping into the realm of the emotional, where they can tap into the passions, hopes and dreams of individuals. “Stories touch the heart and that’s where magic happens,” says Speaker. Her first film, Well of Dreams, has been lauded by film industry insiders as “breathtaking,” “powerful” and “the best first-time film I have even seen.” Well of Dreams is Speaker’s maiden voyage into documentary productions and she has said that the experience changed her life. “I quickly realized that a great story told through film has tremendous power not only to promote a cause, but also to be used as a brand building tool for small businesses.” Speaker states that she is already in pre-production on several short independent films being produced for small business owners and law firms in the coming year. As president of Speaker Media and Marketing (S/M2), and now Speaker Films, Cindy has been a professional marketing coach and consultant for law firms since 1994. She has focused primarily on marketing strategies aimed at growing relationships, leveraging technology and building systems. Her ultimate goal for her clients is to help position them as thought leaders and experts in their market and to generate a consistent stream of referrals. As a result of her efforts Speaker Media and Marketing has been called the secret weapon of some of the top plaintiff’s law firms and trial lawyers in the US.
