StorySelling: Using the Power of Story to Sell Ideas

If you're in the idea business, you're in the persuasion business. Because without our clients' permission, we can't bring our awesome ideas to life. That's ultimately the only reason we present to clients. Not to impress them. Or entertain them. But to get the green light. Ironically, nobody ever teaches us how to do it. We learn in the school of hard knocks. In this session, we'll cover real world stuff we can all do more of that will improve our chances of success. There are no magic tricks. Or "bomb proof" tactics. But there is science behind it. You'll leave our time together armed with simple tactics that have the potential to make a big difference.

Tim Kail

Prior to Rockbox, Tim helped lead the motion design/effects group at Barkley through 2010, when he founded his own video and motion graphics company, Rhymes With Style. Past clients include Cannondale, Sonic, LG, Red Bull and Sprint, as well as a few music videos.

In the increasingly hairy world of video production, Tim isn’t just a Swiss Army knife, he’s a Swiss Army knife with a laser beam. And a cigar cutter. And a spork. From 6k in HD, to 3D in 4D, to VR in 360, to playing DP, he's bound to have a creative solution.

After hours, Tim has been know to play mandolin, fly drones, design t-shirts, have dance battles with his sons Max and Bennett, while somehow finding time to be an incredibly good guy to his wife, Rachel.
