Kindra Hall is President and Chief Strategy Officer at Steller Collective, a marketing agency focused on the strategic application of storytelling to today’s communication challenges. Kindra is one of the most sought after motivational speakers trusted by global brands to design and deliver business amplifying, revealing, interactive keynotes that inspire teams to better communicate the value of their company, their products and their individuality to accelerate personal and professional growth.
What began as a chance encounter at age 13 with a storytelling cassette tape grew into a complete understanding of the craft, methods and science of storytelling, in its most pure form…free of promotion or agenda. She has been a National Champion storyteller (yeah, they have those), member of the Board of Directors of the National Storytelling Network and has her master’s degree in communications where she conducted original research in the role that storytelling plays in defining and revealing culture.
Today, Kindra’s work can be seen in a weekly column at Inc.com, and featured in SUCCESS Magazine, Entrepreneur.com and behind the scenes in New York Times best selling books. Kindra is a former Director of Marketing and VP of Sales. She is a published author, an award-winning columnist and guest faculty at Harvard Medical School.
Kindra frequently works with innovative brands like ConAgra, Stryker, Target and Hilton Hotels to use the irresistible power of storytelling to capture attention and connect in a distracted marketplace. Kindra has become a conference favorite for her clients who invite her back for consecutive annual events. Her presentations include revealing research, eye-opening case studies and, of course, stories attendees will remember and retell long after the event ends. Audiences leave inspired and motivated to apply Kindra’s actionable content.
Kindra lives in New York City with her husband, young son and daughter. When she is not traveling around the world speaking, Kindra can usually be found at spin class or at home with the family. And while she’ll never win a bake sale—she’s a welcomed guest-reader in her kids’ classes.
