A sad Christmas song about a missing chair - and the power of a story (NO)

If you have a story, you have endless opportunities; Opportunities to convince, change, argue and create images in your audience's heads. What we talk about is different, but the basic recipe is the same: Tell a story that is relevant.

In this talk, rhetorician and associate professor at Kristiania University College, Kjell Terje Ringdal, will tell the story of his dad, an unhappy whaler. Ringdal Senior endured the whaling life because he wanted to do good for his little family home in Sandefjord. Kjell Terje will use this story as an example of how efficient storytelling can be of use when we are making necessary changes in our society.

NB: The talk is given in Norwegian.
