Stories or narratives have been shared in every culture as a means of entertainment and education -- with a larger intent to connect. With disruptive technologies and new mediums always emerging, storytelling has expanded dramatically. For brands, causes and companies, the monumental shift in how we absorb and distribute content is impacting our approach on all fronts: collaboration, org structure, budget and more. Our panel will talk about their industry experiences and how they’re defining stories today.
