Long before storytelling became a business buzzword, Kindra was fulfilling a 5th grade language arts assignment by reading a story to a room full of out-of-control 3rd graders. Instead of reading from the pages, Kindra set the storybook aside and told the story herself. Within the first few sentences, she held those unruly 3rd graders in the palm of her hand and knew, in that moment, she had stumbled upon something powerful.

 Since that time, Hall has become the go-to expert for storytelling in business and beyond.

She is the best-selling author of Stories that Stick: How Storytelling Can Captivate Customers, Influence Audiences, and Transform Your Business.

KEYNOTE OPTION 2

Choose Your Story, Change Your Life:

Rewriting the Stories You Tell Yourself

The most important stories that are told are the ones you tell yourself. These stories determine the way you think and feel and act. They are deeply powerful predictors of what you are becoming and what your life will be. Unfortunately, not all self-stories are good for you. And even more challenging, these stories are entirely invisible—an automatic, everyday mental routine so you don’t even recognize they are there. The good news is, you have the power to change them.

Through shared stories, case studies and original research, Kindra Hall offers a new window into your psychology to grasp at the deep inner workings of your thoughts and feelings. Audiences will learn how to identify and flip the script on the internal stories and regain control. This eye-opening journey will help transform individuals from “passive listeners” into “definitive authors” of who they are to achieve everything they want to be.
