Storyteller Jordan Bower at Culture First

Hi, I’m Jordan Bower: Expert Storytelling Consultant & Facilitator

You can’t just wave a magic wand and make someone a better communicator. (Believe me. I’ve tried.) But I think better communications skills are worth the hard work — especially now, when so much is changing all at once, and audiences everywhere are desperately looking for people they can trust.

To be a good communicator today, you need to be creative, spontaneous, thoughtful & insightful. You need to be visual and experimental. You need to be at least a little funny. And you need to learn how to do this well without going back to school and getting a degree in English Literature.

I get you. I didn’t set out to be a storyteller. I’ve got a business degree. I speak Excel, Powerpoint and balance sheets. I used to think communications was fluff. But then a crisis in my life totally transformed my attitude.

Today, I lead workshops all over the world for companies like Autodesk, SAS and Mozilla and organizations like the Federal Reserve and the Government of Canada.

I help these organization see that the leaders of the future will be those of us who can express ourselves clearly. Those of us who can be hopeful and optimistic in the face of chaotic change. I agree with what Steve Jobs said: the most powerful person in the world is the storyteller.
