Grow the Whole You at AACD 2021 Rockies General Sessions

September 9, 2020 by AACD Executive Office

Because achieving your dreams requires more than just clinical knowledge and skills, we’re bringing in two young and inspiring general sessions speakers to help you navigate the “soft skills” side of success—the side we often overlook and undervalue.

Kindra Hall: "The Irresistible Power of Strategic Storytelling"

Champion Storyteller, Columnist, Author

The shift from a transactional economy to a connected one has people scrambling. Businesses, brands, and leaders at all levels are desperately trying to capture attention and resonate with consumers who expect more. Is there a secret weapon? A silver bullet to humanize and connect? Yes. The answer is strategic storytelling.  Whether you are looking to reach more consumers, or bring your team closer together, Kindra Hall,  award-winning columnist, author, and national champion storyteller (yes, they have those), delivers a presentation that will inspire teams and individuals to better communicate the value of their business and their individuality through strategic storytelling. 

Kindra is President and Chief Storytelling Officer at Steller Collective, a consulting firm focused on the strategic application of storytelling to today’s communication challenges.   Kindra’s work can be seen at Inc.com, Entrepreneur.com and as a contributing editor for SUCCESS Magazine.  A former board member of the National Storytelling Network, and with a Masters’ Degree in Organizational Communication & Management, Kindra now teaches innovative brands and executives to close more sales, become better leaders and blow up brands with the irresistible power of strategic storytelling.  She also recently published, “Stories That Stick:  How Storytelling Can Captivate Customers, Influence Audiences, and Transform Your Business.”

Kindra will be speaking during AACD 2021’s general session and will help attendees understand that telling stories in a powerful way is a simple, accessible skill anyone can develop.  Her blend of inspiration and education means that you will leave feeling excited and equipped to finally put your own stories to work in a tangible way in order to differentiate your practice from others, capture your target customers and elevate your practice.
