Posted 2.12.2016

Barbara Leary, MPOD Class of 2016 and Managing Director at FTI Consulting, will be presenting with Angie Gorman, Managing Director at FTI Consulting at the Association of Change Management Professionals Change Management 2016 conference May 17 in Dallas, TX.

Their presentation, "Once Upon a Change: Master the Craft of Storytelling to Inspire Change," help participants understand how storytelling can be used effectively to energize change.

Presentation Description: It’s a mystery: given that so much has been written about the power of stories to move people, why do we still commit homicide by slide deck, draining the life from our audiences with corporate speak and charts and graphs? We can all do better, so we are calling on our favorite heroes and villains from great works of literature to help us explore ways to use stories to energize change. The Zombie Apocalypse was so last decade—let’s liven things up! No spoilers—but just wait ‘til you see what the master storytellers are doing.
