The Power of People: Wasting Words, Hafnarhús, Thursday 10 April at 8 p.m.

Today we can all be storytellers from 140 characters and up. How do we make sure that our stories start in the right place and travel in the right direction? How do we make this work for good?

Nathan Woodhead of the global creative agency The Brooklyn Brothers will speak about storytelling and communication in the digital age. The lecture takes place at Reykjavik Art Museum Hafnarhús on Thursday, April 10 at 8PM.

As emotional, responsive human beings the words we choose to use say a great deal about us. Now we live in an online world where the things we do say remain long beyond the moment they were uttered. How do we stay consistent and ensure that what we do and say matters to the people who matter to us?

As reality and the digital world become increasingly intertwined the voice of a brand can often also be the voice of an individual. So where does one voice stop and the next start, do they even need to?

For brands of all shapes and sizes people are more important than ever, because now people everywhere have a voice and that voice is one that should be heard for the right reasons.

Today we can all be storytellers from 140 characters and up how do we make sure the story starts in the right place, travels in the right direction and how do we make this work for good?
