Podcast with André Bastié - CEO & Co-Founder of Happy Scribe

“Never be afraid of doing things. It’s a motto that still drives me today while running Happy Scribe. It’s like this fake it until you make it, this idea that you can learn on the go. When we developed Happy Scribe as well, our first big customer was a TV channel in Spain that needed subtitles made by a human in Catalan.

When we had them on the call, we were like, of course, we can do it for you. And that project was a disaster, but we learned a lot. Trying to go a step ahead in the unknown and out of your comfort zone, this is where you actually learn things.”

– André Bastié

GMU Live

Hyatt tapped SNP to create a video promoting GMU Live — the onsite portion of General Manager University onboarding program. SNP traveled to Chicago for the shoot to coach the speakers on camera and capture compelling b-roll that highlighted the new general managers’ emotional, and educational journey into Hyatt.

Hyatt Glasswing Overview

SNP produced an internal marketing video to help raise awareness and adoption of Hyatt’s new Glasswing application, which tracks real-time financial data, KPIs, and other core metrics for owners and operators. From conducting the interviews, to coaching the speakers on camera and editing the video, SNP owned the content creation at each step of production.

Back in 2013, Asana was still a young company and some of their managers were experiencing leadership roles for the first time. So they needed to learn how to be, well, leaders. Like how to be more influential, directive, confident, and how to deal with conflict. Because if they could flourish then Asana could start to scale even faster (and without so many growing pains).

Enter SNP.

We started with just one 1:1 coaching relationship. But the good word spread fast. Soon enough more people from Asana’s management team were seeking our unique third party perspective, skill-based approach, and communications expertise to build their personal brand, strengthen their careers, and achieve more. (And did we mention the coaching program was a perk that attracted new talent? We didn’t? Well…) Eight years later and Asana is still scaling. And we’re still by their side helping them do it.
