As a leader in the education field, you have the potential not only to imagine new approaches to learning, but also to inspire students, faculty members, and administrators to support and execute your vision. By understanding how your audiences think and feel, and by leveraging the power of storytelling principles, you can express your ideas in a way that resonates with your audiences and motivates them to spread your ideas. Keynote attendees will learn to:

  • Connect with students and stakeholders empathetically
  • Understand the power of speeches, stories, ceremonies, and symbols
  • Leverage the hidden story structures inherent in great communication
  • Create captivating content and ideas that get repeated
  • Inspire others to support your vision for distance education
