The Heart of the Matter: Multimedia Storytelling

(8:30 a.m.-Noon)

  • Part I — Introduction and overview for all attendees
  • Part II — How to implement these techniques in your organization

In a time when reader’s attention spans are running short, becoming a master at the art of storytelling will be vital to the survival and success of PR professionals. This is a unique opportunity to gain insight and techniques from a nationally known innovator who has taken the art of multimedia storytelling to a new level for clients such as Doctors without Borders, Starbucks, MSNBC, AARP and The Discovery Channel. 

The digital age is giving communications pros extraordinary new opportunities. With new tools and platforms constantly emerging, you can also exercise a greater level of authorship with your work. How can the long-form, in-depth visual storyteller satisfy both their journalistic and financial needs in this environment? Learn how to disseminate your work to create an impact on the subject, issue and hopefully society.
