Kindra Hall is president and chief strategy officer at Steller Collective, a marketing agency focused on the strategic application of storytelling to today's communication challenges. She is one of the most sought-after motivational speakers trusted by global brands to design and deliver business amplifying, revealing, interactive keynotes that inspire teams to better communicate the value of their company, their products, and their individuality to accelerate personal and professional growth. What began as a chance encounter at age 13 with a storytelling cassette tape, grew into a complete understanding of the craft, methods, and science of storytelling, in its most pure form, free of promotion or agenda. She has been a National Champion storyteller (yeah, they have those), member of the board of directors of the National Storytelling Network, and has her master degree in communications where she conducted original research in the role that storytelling plays in defining and revealing culture. Today, Ms. Hall's work can be seen in a weekly column at Inc.com, and featured in SUCCESS Magazine, Entrepreneur.com, and behind the scenes in New York Times best-selling books. She is a former director of marketing and VP of sales. She is a published author, an award-winning columnist, and guest faculty at Harvard Medical School.
