SHIT JUST GOT REAL.
A practical tour into the age of authenticity.
This talk is a rollercoaster through heart-warming to heart-wrenching examples of how brands are embracing the power of being vulnerable and real in order to thrive.
I saw Stefan's talk at OnBrand in Amsterdam this year where he talked about the importance of authenticity in today's brand communications. Not only is this something we talk a lot about at Typeform, but it's completely on point for where things are today. Stefan used real-life examples, engaging visuals and story-telling techniques— all with a healthy dash of humour and emotion. He had the audience engaged throughout and inspired some good conversations afterwards. I would recommend Stefan for any conference that wants to put storytelling at the heart of actionable insight for their audience.

Stefan, CEO of pr.co, is the only known startup founder to have been sued by David Hasselhoff. When he is not creating stories of his own he can be found working on his core passion: guiding brands through the minefield of authenticity culture. He does this by advocating purpose driven storytelling, while providing the practical tools to really make them sing. Stefan believes that with the right company culture, tools and communication, trust can be restored between brands' and their audiences.
A video from a previous talk that had many titles but here it goes by "I Don't Often Fail, But When I Do ...". This talk is a heart-felt journey through the hardships of running a startup and how to stay sane!

What I believe in
I believe every organization is valuable, always. Otherwise it should (and eventually will) cease to exist. Unfortunately most companies lose sight of their raison-d'être, their purpose, and start to dwindle. If each company better communicated their purpose - they'd have far greater impact.

We help teams communicate better with far fewer headaches. Our tool helps companies create branded newsrooms, easily publish press releases and gives them a powerful way to distribute emails and measure results.
