About the Speaker:
Susan Lindner, the Founder and CEO of Innovation Storytellers, first mastered
the art of storytelling when she was working as an international aid officer in rural Thailand in the 1990s, helping to slow the spread of HIV by turning sex workers into entrepreneurs.
Using persuasion, proof, and the promise of a better future, she went on to teach hundreds of startups how to use stories to make the case for their disruptive business models and get investors and customers onboard.
Today, Susan works in Fortune 500 boardrooms around the world, helping global innovation leaders craft stories that bring their teams together around Breakthrough ideas. She has worked with C-level leaders and teams from over 60 countries at Fortune 100 companies like GE, Corning, Citi, AT&T, Arm & Hammer on their innovation storytelling strategies. The result? Those innovation leaders become incredible storytellers who go on to change the world.
Using a practical and repeatable framework, shared with humor and empathy, Susan helps audiences be more intentional about the stories they share at every level to make their innovations easier to understand, easier to champion, and easier to bring to life.
