How can digital platforms be used to tell stories, change behaviour, and drive impact? 
There is no denying that storytelling serves as a powerful tool for not only inspiring action and creating social change but also in influencing thought leaders, funders, and decision makers. Whatever the cause we promote, we need to tell new narratives that will bring people closer to our messages by connecting with their deepest motivations and promoting more radical action among individuals and communities. Stories engage people at every level - not just in their minds but in their emotions, values and imaginations, which are the drivers of real change.

So you have a “big idea” that’s game-changing. That’s great! Now what?
Whether you’re selling a product, launching an app, or trying to improve lives and drive social change, you need to know how to get people to buy into your big idea. We will discuss how to use digital platforms and storytelling to build a community around your idea, advocate for social change, and drive individuals’ behaviour to maximize your impact and reach your goals. This session will also include discussions on how you can use individual experiences to create a “village” of collaborators and partners to help you champion your cause, be more innovative, have a larger impact, connect communities and bring your ideas closer to each individual.
