Never in history has the ability to communicate been so pervasive.  Mobile devices, apps and internet connectivity can bring any person or idea to your fingertips with a simple click.  Yet, sharing your ideas and messages through the vast profusion of these digital assets can be mind-boggling. Advertisers, social media strategists, publishers, journalists, businesses, non-profits and government agencies have all discovered that a good story can stir peoples’ emotions and compel them to action.  Digital technology empowers you to tell compelling personal, professional and community stories. It has become a critical venue for creative expression and advocacy. Knowing how to tell stories using digital technology is no longer an option if you want to communicate in the emerging world. At digiSTORY2014, leaders in social media, technology trends, entertainment and media production will talk about their own experiences and equip you as a digital storyteller.
