Shane Snow | TEDxColumbiaCollege
In this video, COO and co-founder of Contently, Shane Snow, speaks at Columbia College in 2014. He opens up his presentation asking whether the audience would trust author J.K. Rowling or Queen Elizabeth more as a leader. The poll found that two-thirds of people would prefer J.K. Rowling over Queen Elizabeth as a leader, revealing that we typically trust story tellers more.
Award-winning journalist and innovator, Shane Snow has helped expose gun traffickers and gender discrimination, eaten only ice cream for weeks in the name of science, and helped thousands of businesses and hundreds of thousands of individuals work better through his best-selling books, Smartcuts, The Storytelling Edge, and Dream Teams.
A dynamic storyteller and internationally acclaimed keynote speaker, Snow has been declared a “Wunderkind" by the New York Times, a “Maverick” by Details, and his work “Insanely addicting” by GQ. He's consistently rated the top speaker at global conferences and private events—with an uncanny ability to get people to drop their phones, unless it's to tweet about their minds being blown—leaving audiences with new ways to approach problems and teamwork. After hearing Snow speak, people never look at work the same way.
