Eva Snijders, General Manager and Chief Storytelling Officer at Ogilvy Public Relations, Madrid (Spain)
"Stories that help you grow: how shaping your story can help you succeed."
There are many types of stories. Some of them confirm our world view and lull us into a pleasant sleep. Others, on the contrary, question what we think is real. These stories shake us out of of our dreams and invite us to go outside our comfort zones and enter a place for growth.
In this session, Eva Snijders will share her personal story of growth and the stories that helped her along the way. You will learn new ways to look at your own stories and work with them, in order to achieve success.
