"The Power of Story" with Stanford GSB Professor Jennifer Aaker - Thursday, 23 April

Please join us for a presentation and discussion with Stanford GSB Professor Jennifer Aaker. Professor Aaker will be speaking about her research on the power of story. Studies show that we are wired to remember stories much more than data, facts, and figures. However, when data and story are used together, audiences are moved both emotionally and intellectually. This promises to be a stimulating and engaging discussion.

This event is co-hosted by ATP Innovations and Blackbird Ventures.
