Presented by: Geoffrey Klein


A fun, impactful keynote about the power of STORY as the great connector. Telling stories dates back thousands of years. Effective Communication is critical and telling stories is a modern day necessity. We must travel back in time to relearn the art of storytelling and then bring it back to the future through the science of story and examining how the human brain behaves. There is a lot of noise and clutter to cut through to be heard and using stories can help both capture and maintain an audience’s attention. This interactive, entertaining and engaging keynote will provide a simple and effective format for telling compelling stories that the audience can implement immediately, The audience will not only learn the science behind why story matters, it will leave an audience thinking differently about their everyday communication and an understanding of how story connects our humanity.
