Keynote Speaker: Kindra Hall

Award-Winning Storyteller Kindra Hall told her first story in the spring of 1992…

Long before storytelling became a business buzzword, Kindra was fulfilling a fifth grade language arts assignment by reading a story to a room full of out-of-control third 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 third 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, which debuted at No. 2 on the Wall Street Journal Bestseller ListForbes said it “may be the most valuable business book you read.”

  • Her highly anticipated second book, Choose Your Story, Change Your Life: Silence Your Inner Critic and Rewrite Your Life from the Inside Out, releases in January of 2022.

Hall inspires teams and individuals to better communicate the value of their company, their products, and their individuality through strategic storytelling.

Hall is also the Chief Storytelling Officer at Success Magazine where she shares the inspiring, often untold, stories of achievers like Daymond John, Deepak Chopra, James Altucher, and Misty Copeland in print and on the podcast Success Stories with Kindra Hall. Kindra lives in Manhattan with her husband, young son, and daughter. When she is not traveling the world speaking, Kindra can usually be found at spin class, spending time with friends, or exploring the city with her family.
