  1. Winning the Story Wars: Jonah Sachs at TEDxRainier

    An internationally recognized storyteller, author, designer and entrepreneur, Jonah Sachs is the co-founder and creative director of Free Range Media. Jonah’s passion lies in exploring the crossroads of ancient storytelling techniques, social responsibility and emerging technologies. He has helped hundreds of social brands and causes break through the media din with campaigns built on sound storytelling strategies. He shows how value-driven stories represent humanity’s greatest hope for the future.

    In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
