It’s one of the paradoxes of persuasion: Smart people are afraid to tell stories. But while we often resort to facts and figures to get a point across, the truth is that human stories possess the greatest power to convict, persuade, and, most importantly, unite. As neuroscientists and behavioral social scientists have demonstrated, the secret to stronger human connection isn’t more data—it’s better stories.
On May 23rd, join the Georgia Center for Opportunity and Georgia Public Policy Foundation for a breakfast with Arthur Brooks, president of the American Enterprise Institute, who will explain how we can all use the power of storytelling to become more unifying as leaders in our communities, families, and places of work.
Arthur Brooks is the acclaimed author of The Conservative Heart: How to Build a Fairer, Happier, and More Prosperous America, which was a 2015 New York Times bestseller. Brooks, who has been president of AEI since 2009, has emerged as a key thought leader in the free enterprise movement.
Breakfast is included in the cost of registration. Parking is free.
