  21. 21. Invited to speak at SXSW 2012 alongside Kahlil Ashanti, storyteller, performer, and character actor of Cirque de Soleil. Our interactive session was extremely popular with attendees. SXSW 2012 Character Building as an Attention Magnet Lets skip over the bluster and bragging of social media storytelling. Instead, lets talk about the kinds of stories that get people’s respect & attention. When you think of the leading voices who are crushing it online, their influence seems almost effortless. Because you feel like you’ve known them forever. What’s the secret? They’ve developed a style of personal narrative that reveals more of who they are and how they think, to the point of death-defying vulnerability. So lets talk about developing your own storytelling mojo for greater recognition and playing on a bigger stage.
