About the Author

Kindra Hall is President and Chief Storytelling Officer at Steller Collective, a consulting firm focused on the strategic application of storytelling to today's communication challenges. Kindra is one of the most sought-after keynote speakers trusted by global brands to deliver presentations and trainings that inspire teams and individuals to better communicate the value of their company, their products, and their individuality through strategic storytelling.

What began as a chance encounter at age 13 with a storytelling cassette tape grew into a passion for not only telling stories, but a mastery for teaching others the methods and science of storytelling so they can better tell their own.

She was a National Champion storyteller (yes, they have those), member of the Board of Directors of the National Storytelling Network and has her master's degree in communications where she conducted original research studying the role of storytelling in defining and revealing organizational culture.

Kindra is a former Director of Marketing and VP of Sales and former Chief Storytelling Officer at SUCCESS Magazine. Today, Kindra's work can be seen at Inc.com, Entrepreneur.com, SUCCESS, and more. Kindra's message spans all industries, and her clients include Facebook, Hilton Hotels, Tyson Foods, Target, Berkshire Hathaway and the Harvard Medical School.

Regardless of the industry, Kindra has become a conference favorite for her clients. The blend of inspiration and education in her keynotes mean that audiences leave feeling excited and equipped to finally put their stories to work in a tangible way.

Kindra lives in Manhattan with her husband, young son, and daughter. When she is not traveling around the world speaking, Kindra can usually be found at spin class or in Central Park with her family.

Lots of people tell stories, a few are great at it and one can show you how to do it. That's the story of Kindra and this book.' --Scott Stratten, bestselling, award-winning author and Hall of Fame Speaker/Storyteller
'I'm picky about what I read. Doubly so with business books. But Kindra hooked me on page one and wouldn't let go. Such is the power of superb storytelling.

Advice every business owner and influencer needs to understand.' --Mel Robbins, author of the international bestseller The 5 Second Rule
