In the digital age, the power of storytelling is more prevalent than ever before. When you have the power to reach billions of people instantaneously, the stories you tell carry influence, and with this influence comes responsibility. Our role primarily begins with recognizing that the way we tell stories today will continue to change.

During #SMWNYC, sessions led by some of the world’s most creative and successful storytellers and leading brands will discuss this precise topic as part of our global theme Stories: With Great Influence Comes Great Responsibility.

Creating storylines that are consumer-led is no easy feat. In a fireside chat, Postmate’s Eric Edge, SVP, Brand and Communications, will speak to this subject assessing how successful brands are achieving a best-in-class storytelling technique and providing actionable takeaways around adapting your brand around consumer-driven stories. In a similar vein, Jason Hsiao, Chief Video Offer and Co-Founder of Animoto, will share his best tips and tricks for capturing eyes across Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube through key video marketing tactics brands and influencers swear by.

The first step in navigating the evolution of storytelling is embracing our responsibility. Award-winning storyteller, Ari Kuschnir, will explore this notion by outlining ways to fully realize storytelling’s true potential through the lens of his favorite bio/neuro hacking tools.

In a closing keynote address, best-selling author and entrepreneur Seth Godin will discuss ways to find the balance between causing a “ruckus” without “becoming a hard-working cog in a system that doesn’t care.”
