Shane Snow Speaker Biography


Award-winning journalist and innovator, Shane Snow has helped expose gun traffickers and gender discrimination, eaten only ice cream for weeks in the name of science, and helped thousands of businesses and hundreds of thousands of individuals work better through his best-selling books, Smartcuts, The Storytelling Edge, and Dream Teams.

A dynamic storyteller and internationally acclaimed keynote speaker, Snow has been declared a “Wunderkind" by the New York Times, a “Maverick” by Details, and his work “Insanely addicting” by GQ. He's consistently rated the top speaker at global conferences and private events—with an uncanny ability to get people to drop their phones, unless it's to tweet about their minds being blown—leaving audiences with new ways to approach problems and teamwork. After hearing Snow speak, people never look at work the same way.

Snow's writing has appeared in Wired, the New Yorker, Fast Company, the Washington Post, and Time. He’s a Fellow of The Royal Society of the Arts, an exclusive club co-founded by Benjamin Franklin to enrich society through ideas and action; a recipient of Columbia University’s prestigious Innovator Award, for furthering the cause of journalism; and the co-founder of the technology firm Contently, which has been repeatedly named to Inc. and Deloitte's lists of fastest growing private companies, and Crain's and Ad Age's best places to work in America.

In his entertaining and provocative keynote presentations, Snow shatters common wisdom through gripping stories and surprising research on innovation and human behavior. The BBC says that his ideas, "could change your life," and Maxim adds, "Snow is not telling you how to succeed; he's daring you to do it."

Shane Snow customizes each experience for industry and audience (e.g. managers vs. front-line employees) through surprising stories and thought-provoking research, leaving people energized and with concrete ways to implement new ideas.

Dream Teams & The Science of Breakthrough Collaboration. This brilliant and entertaining keynote performance will change the way you think about people, progress, and collaboration. Shane takes audiences on a rollicking adventure, revealing the secrets of the world’s most successful teams and coalitions in history.

You’ll learn about the surprising factor behind most failed mergers and marriages; how a certain method of fighting is more useful than brainstorming; how leveraging “cognitive diversity” helps groups outmatch competitors; the science of becoming open-minded—and the outsize effect it has on group success; and the counter-intuitive truths about becoming better team players ourselves.

The Storytelling Edge, & How To Transform The Way You Work & Do Business. How do some companies build incredible brands, gain massive mindshare, and change their customers’ minds seemingly overnight while others toil for years to do the same?

In this fast-paced keynote, Snow shares the secrets to powerful storytelling, with compelling (and often hilarious) stories and behind-the-scenes insights from his award-winning content company, Contently, and hit book, The Storytelling Edge.

With his signature blend of dramatic narrative and rigorous science, Snow shows not only how each member of the audience can use storytelling to supercharge their jobs, but how stories work at a neurological level, and how our organizations can harness their power to build relationships, make people care, and spur change.

Smartcuts For Accelerating Innovation & Thinking Differently. Breakthrough innovation happens when we rethink conventional wisdom. But how do you train yourself—or your organization—to think differently? How do you foster an environment where it’s safe to do so, where innovation can thrive without destroying your business?

How do the world’s most clever companies manage to not only endure change, but harness it to climb to new heights? How do rocket makers and children’s hospitals stay alive in the face of market shifts and competitive challenges? What can established businesses learn from revolutionaries, crazy geniuses, and crackpot comedians to help manage changes big and small?

In this clever and surprising keynote, Snow debunks myths of success, shares unforgettable research and stories, and fires audiences up to 11. You will never think the same again.
