Courage. Commitment. Change. It’s the process of change that challenges organizations and nations most today. Using stories to make plans together, as well as to entertain and inspire, is the basis of a new responsive economy that runs efficiently and and fairly. The courageous leader or courageous brand manager must commit to live the story they tell, taking constant feedback, learning from the audience to incorporate changes into the product, service or story they offer.

The Digital Narrative Alliance created the Narrative Summit for people who want to be leaders in their narrative field, their company, their market or the world. Come to the show to begin your journey to masterful storytelling.
