If you’ve downloaded and read our Storytelling Manifesto, then you know – there’s a much bigger story (in all of us) that’s ripe for the telling.
I’ve been struck by how many people (and companies) I know are in the midst of reinvention. And it’s not easy. Re-framing your reality — while staying true to who you are — is no walk in the park. Reinvention is the new black.
In this first of my video blog series, I share with you a little bit about the metaphysics of storytelling: how the stories we tell literally make the world.
Reinvention Summit: Nov 11-22
Many of us are struggling with shifting careers, a new age of communications, and the desire to find deeper meaning in our work. Yet most of us don’t have a vocabulary for how to lead, much less navigate, through this dramatic reinvention process. Even the visionaries amongst us need help translating their message into cultural acceptance.
That’s what inspired us to organize the Reinvention Summit: The World’s First Virtual Conference on the Future of Storytelling. It takes place online, Nov 11-22, 2010. 30+ hours of content, social networking, and bonus materials, starting at just $11.11. For the cost of a beer and sandwich, you can join us for this historic global happening. I promise it will be unlike anything you’ve experienced before.
The Summit represents something really bold, ambitious, and possibly a little scary. We’re working to expand the conversation on the role and relevance of storytelling. We believe that everybody is a storyteller: and that we each have the power to re-story our lives — and in the process re-story the world.
If you want to make a difference in the world, with your business, and creative social endeavor – it all begins by deepening your relationship and knowledge of narrative. That’s the foundation from which all innovation/change truly flows. Early bird registration is through November 1. So check it out, if you feel inspired to join us.
