STORY:GNV 2018

OCTOBER 13, 2018

Using Story as a Tool for Growth at the Personal, Professional, and Community Levels

A NEW FOCUS FOR 2018

After our 2017 STORY:GNV Conference, we found that a distinct set of conversations were happening around story, and we decided to gear 2018’s STORY:GNV Conference around those themes. Storytelling is a powerful tool for growth and its potential for great impact is resonant with the Gainesville community. This year, our speaker tracks will represent how storytelling can be used as a tool for Personal Growth, Organizational Growth, and Community Growth. A number of incredible speakers on all of these subjects has been curated. Come join the conversation!

WHAT IS STORY:GNV?

STORY:GNV is Gainesville’s first conference to use storytelling to showcase how we can connect with others more thoughtfully, do business more efficiently and change our communities more wholeheartedly.  STORY:GNV is bringing together a diverse group of individuals from many different sectors of Gainesville, representing Personal Growth, Organizational Growth, and Community Growth– to share the ways that storytelling impacts their work. Gather ’round the proverbial campfire, Gainesville.
