David Lewis: The Power Between Your Lips

One of the most important skills to master in life is your ability to communicate. Some of earliest forms of communication began as illustrated stories on the walls of caves to teach others how to survive and prosper. Fast forward 40,000 years and we now know that engagement through storytelling is rooted in our biology. Breakthroughs in neuroscience have helped us understand how the brain works and how you can use the power of storytelling to influence your audiences like never before. Get ready for one of the most engaging presentations you’ve ever attended as you both experience and learn storytelling frameworks and techniques you can incorporate into every sales and marketing initiative.

Jason Dailey: Social & Mobile

Social media and mobile have become students’ primary means of interacting with the world. The creation of video content is exploding, and people are consuming and sharing an astounding amount of it on mobile. Unsurprisingly, they’re using these platforms to provide news and information, inform everything from their school selection to course choices, and stay connected to the communities that matter most. For professional communicators within higher education, attention to this shift is critical. In this presentation we’ll explore new social trends in higher education, how students consume video on mobile, and best practices for developing content that captures attention.
