Presentation


Overview

As the storytellers of our generation, we are just learning how to tell a story.

In this presentation, Tom starts with an Innuit storyteller from Canada’s Arctic Circle and walks you through how story telling has moved from the oral to the digital traditions and how the linear stories we tell each other have morphed into the non linear stories told on the web today. Along the way he deals with houses falling into oceans, dreams and Pro Wrestling as he illustrates the importance of being able to tell a simple, compelling and engaging story in today’s digital media environment.
