Robert McKee

Screenwriter & Fulbright Scholar

For years, marketers have been sneaking into Robert McKee’s Story seminars to learn the craft of storytelling from the person who taught more than 60 Academy Award winners.

Well, it’s time to put away those dark glasses. On June 16, Robert and Tom Gerace will bring Storynomics, a one-day storytelling seminar designed specifically for marketers, to Boston. Most marketers understand WHY story is such a powerful form of communication.

You’ll now have the opportunity to learn HOW to incorporate story form into your marketing strategies – giving you what you need to reach increasingly skeptical and discerning audiences.


It’s rare that a conference delivers on its promise—this conference delivered.
