“Strategic Storytelling:  How to listen, be credible and exert more influence”

Dr. Tony Gerth – Clinical Professor of Information Systems at the University of North Texas


Effective communication is critical to influencing others in order to get funding, alignment on strategy, acceptance of your solution and many other objectives.  However often technical professionals find it difficult to communicate with others who do not have the same level of subject matter expertise.  This presentation will provide strategies for effective communication that will build your credibility and increase your influence.  A framework based on research will be shared to understand your audience as well as a structured approach to storytelling that will strengthen your message.



  • Understand the importance of listening in effective communication
