“The shortest distance between two people is a story,” according to Terrence Gargiulo, former Chief Storyteller of Accenture. Stories are fundamental to how we communicate, learn, and think – but finding ways to tap into the endless supply of “storied fueled” learning is not always clear.
Gargiulo, the founder of Makingstories.net, will show participants new ways of putting the natural power of stories to work. He will go behind the “learning and performance” scene of two Fortune 500 companies to show how story-based learning strategies enabled unexpected performance.
Terrence Gargiulo leads the global storytelling consultancy Makingstories.net. He is the former Chief Storyteller of Accenture and the author of eight books. His article, The Power of Stories: Personalizing the Learning Connection was awarded the 2018 Editor’s Choice Award from Training Industry Magazine. For his creative use of narrative, INC Magazine awarded Gargiulo with their Marketing Master Award. His work as an internationally recognized organizational development consultant earned him the 2008 HR Leadership Award from the Asia Pacific HRM Congress for his ground-breaking research on story-based communication skills.
