Since time immemorial, storytellers have known how to engage listeners intuitively. But recent advances in neuroscience have shown us why these techniques work.  In this highly interactive session, story strategist Lisa Lipkin will introduce original techniques for capturing attention, becoming persuasive, and unforgettable. Participants will learn how to find the most compelling stories behind the facts and figures. They’ll learn how to tap into unconscious memories by activating key regions of the brain that facilitate memory.
