Keynote Presentation

The Art of Storytelling in Leadership: “Stories have the power to build bridges between people from different backgrounds, beliefs, and ideologies making it one of the most powerful and engaging forms of communication. When told from a place of reflection, a personal narrative can inspire action, engage audiences and foment lasting social change. However, many leaders and cultural agents have not fully tapped into their personal experiences when developing a vision for themselves, their communities and a larger unified movement.”
