Robert McKee  

Screenwriting & Storytelling Guru, Creator of Storynomics™

Robert McKee has spent his entire life in service of story — acting in the theatre since the age of 8, earning advanced degrees in theater and film, performing and directing off-Broadway, screenwriting in Hollywood, writing the screenwriter’s bible, teaching the STORY Seminar to more than 100,000 story artists, and finally bringing story to the captains of industry.

McKee believes story is the structure of our mind — and therefore a preeminent exercise. We had better shape, live, and tell great stories to avoid decadence.

Such is McKee’s philosophy and passion for story — a passion that extends to business.

Robert McKee is the preeminent story expert and mentor on Earth. His articles have appeared in hundreds of newspapers and magazines around the world including Harvard Business Review, The Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker Magazine, Swiss Business Magazine, Sueddeutsche Zeitung, CBS Morning News, BBC, Channel 4 in UK, RAI (Italy), CBN Weekly News & Morning Glory (China), MBC TV, KBS & Arirang TV, Korea Times (South Korea), Kiev Weekly, Kultura Moscow, and all major TV, Radio and/or newspapers of Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Germany, France, India, Israel, Mexico, New Zealand, Portugal, Russia, Turkey, Singapore, SouthAfrica, Sweden, and Switzerland.

In recent years, Robert has helped organizations as diverse as Microsoft, Nike, Hewlett-Packard, Kraft, UBISOFT, Mercedes-Benz, and Siemens develop their evolving narrative game plans. He can do the same for you and your company as he will show you how story will connect with your audiences, both external and internal.
