Award-winning journalist and innovator Shane Snow has helped expose gun traffickers and gender discrimination, eaten only ice cream for weeks in the name of science, and helped thousands of businesses and hundreds of thousands of individuals work better through his bestselling books Smartcuts, The Storytelling Edge, and Dream Teams.

A dynamic storyteller and internationally acclaimed keynote speaker, Snow has been declared a “Wunderkind” by The New York Times, a “Maverick” by Details, and his work praised as “Insanely addicting” by GQ. He’s consistently rated the top speaker at global conferences and private events—with an uncanny ability to get people to drop their phones (unless it’s to tweet about their minds being blown), leaving audiences with new ways to approach problems and teamwork. After hearing Snow speak, people never look at work the same way again.

Snow’s writing has appeared in Wired, The New Yorker, Fast Company, The Washington Post, and Time. He’s a Fellow of The Royal Society of the Arts, an exclusive club co-founded by Benjamin Franklin to enrich society through ideas and action; a recipient of Columbia University’s prestigious Innovator Award, for furthering the cause of journalism; and the co-founder of the technology firm Contently, which has been repeatedly named to Inc. and Deloitte’s lists of fastest growing private companies, and Crain’s and Ad Age’s best places to work in America.

In his entertaining and provocative keynote presentations, Snow shatters common wisdom through gripping stories and surprising research on innovation and human behavior. The BBC says that his ideas, “could change your life,” and Maxim adds, “Snow is not telling you how to succeed; he’s daring you to do it.”

Shane was tasked with creating a virtual program that was elevated from the typical webinar format. What he delivered was a Price is Right style virtual game show that explored the science of breakthrough teamwork. It made for the perfect mix of entertainment, poignant takeaways, and inspiration. His ability to mix fun and serious questions, while exploring complex topics in simplified and understandable ways, provided the attendees with an unique and effective learning experience in an enjoyable format.

Absolutely loved the virtual keynote. I've had a chance to circle back with most members of the team. You are wonderful! Thank you so much. You've given us a new vocabulary, new ideas, and a framework for challenging ourselves to tackle a different way of working and interacting. Stay tuned--we have work to do.

Ringing, shining reviews were heard all around! I don't think that they could have loved him more. They were literally coming over to me before he was finished with jaws dropped. We have never had a speaker integrate so much feedback and information from a call. They literally felt like he crafted it just for them and couldn't have been more pleased. Thank you so much!
