The Art of Storytelling 

The art of storytelling is as old as human history—we have been telling stories since the first words were spoken. We respond to stories because they touch us on an emotional level, and follow a basic logic and structure that helps us learn and understand. Join this panel of experts to hear about the elements of a good story, the role of drama and conflict, and how to inspire your audience, whoever they are.
