Kindra Hall      

Chief Strategy Officer at Steller Collective, Author & Storyteller

Kindra Hall, MA Wall Street Journal best selling author and Award-Winning Storyteller, told her first story in the spring of 1992.

Long before storytelling became a business buzzword, Hall was fulfilling a 5th grade language arts assignment by reading a story to a room full of out-of-control 3rd graders. Instead of reading from the pages, Hall set the storybook aside and told the story herself. Within the first few sentences, she held those unruly 3rd graders in the palm of her hand and knew, in that moment, she had stumbled upon something powerful.

Since that time, Hall has become the go-to expert for storytelling in business and beyond. She is the best-selling author of "Stories that Stick: How Storytelling Can Captivate Customers, Influence Audiences, and Transform Your Business." "Stories that Stick" debuted at #2 on the Wall Street Journal Bestseller List and Forbes said it “may be the most valuable business book you read. ”And said her newest book, "Choose Your Story, Change Your Life" is "the business book you need to read in 2022."

Kindra Hall is a sought-after keynote speaker trusted by global brands to deliver messages that inspire teams and individuals to better communicate the value of their company, their products and their individuality through strategic storytelling. Hall is also the former Chief Storytelling Officer at Success Magazine where she shared the inspiring, often untold, stories of achievers like Daymond John, Deepak Chopra, James Altucher and Misty Copeland in print and on the podcast Success Stories with Kindra Hall.

Hall lives in Manhattan with her husband, young son and daughter. When she is not traveling the world speaking, Hall can usually be found at spin class, spending time with friends or exploring the city with her family.
