Leverage the Power of Storytelling
We believe storytellers like you are the architects of the future. And the stories you tell are the building blocks of our world. That means you wield the power to either destroy or rebuild. You must decide how you will use that power.
Will you choose to be an intentional storyMAKER? Will you craft a narrative that influences and inspires others to build a better future? Will you question the status quo, fight for a flicker of hope, and press on toward wonder and possibility?
If you want to do create work that matters on an epic scale...
If you know your best work, and greatest impact, cannot be held back any longer...
If you're ready to take control of the narrative and create a better future for yourself, your community, and our world...

What is your storyteller type?
With almost 30 years of experience as a creative entrepreneur, author, speaker, and coach, Harris III (“the third”) is the visionary director and curator behind STORY.
Harris began his career at a young age, traveling the world as an award-winning, professional illusionist. He has performed for and spoken live to more than two million people in more than 30 countries on five continents. His performances have been televised to millions more on the Travel Channel and ABC Family.
After traveling the globe and making a million dollars by age 21, only to go bankrupt a year later, Harris kick-started a decade-long journey to understand the stories we tell ourselves and how they drive all human behavior. Armed with a unique perspective, his career re-exploded as a renowned speaker, storyteller, and entrepreneur.
He is the author of the book The Wonder Switch, founder of the creative coaching program The Poetics Guild, and a sought-after speaker serving global brands like Apple, Google, Disney, and Nike, along with some of the most innovative nonprofit organizations and government agencies in the world—even NASA.
I went in as something of a mild skeptic. I came out challenged, inspired, grateful — feeling so much more equipped to embrace my own creative ability, the power of a collaborative community, and the broader narrative of justice and beauty that storytellers are engaged in worldwide.
I have never felt as inspired at a conference as I did at STORY. The speakers were a great mix of people from big name places and individuals out on a mission, which made the messages feel more tangible and applicable to my situation.
This conference was EVERYTHING. As graphic designers, creative consultants, and videographers, we are digital storytellers. This has directly impacted our day-to-day work.
The STORY Conference was worth every penny. My team left empowered and with new found purpose and direction. We now recognize when we’re in liminal space personally or professionally. It’s a really great thing to understand and explore.
STORY is a catalyst and a huge encouragement for my husband and me. Thank you for showing us the seeds of hope and the enormous life creativity can bring not just to moments but to generations.
It is the BEST conference I have ever attended by a million. It motivated me so much that 2 days later I wrote a book proposal that I’d been struggling with for four years.
