This On-Demand event was originally presented on January 22, 2020 (60 min)


“The shortest distance between two people is a story,” according to Terrence Gargiulo, former Chief Storyteller of Accenture. Stories are an integral part of how we communicate, learn, and think. They help us understand complex ideas, relate to others, and remember important information. However, it is not always clear how to effectively tap into the endless supply of “storied fueled” learning.

To address this, Gargiulo, founder of, 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 help organizations leverage the power of stories to improve communication, promote learning, drive success, and enable unexpected performance.
