Opening General Session - Lead with Story: Your Superpower for Influence & Impact

As a leader and person of influence, you have the privilege (and the responsibility!) to make a positive, lasting difference in the lives of the people around you. To inspire and encourage. To share insights and shift perspectives. That’s what leaders do. But in today’s distracted, remote, fast-paced world, it can be a challenge to engage in a way that fosters trust and meaningful connection.

Thankfully, there’s a way to connect with, captivate, and move any audience. A superpower available to you right now that will help you engage and create lasting change. Your stories, along with the ability to choose and use them effectively, are your superpower. Through this presentation, you’ll learn why stories work to captivate and transform, what makes a story powerful, and how to collect and craft your own stories for influence and impact. When you inspire, encourage or teach someone, their world changes. Our world changes. Isn’t it time to start using your stories to change the world?
