A highlight of the conference every year, the Storyteller Sessions are a set of five-minute talks from enterprise professionals who share their challenges, opinions, failures and successes. Each story of the last four years has been unique, but many share common attributes:

The best stories are personal.

This is not the place for a generic lecture about industry trends. Audiences connect with speakers who share their own experiences openly and honestly. In 2017, Audrey Crane described her adventures in breast pumping during a client visit and Adam Polansky told us about getting fired by a client.

The best stories are well-structured.

They have a beginning, a middle and an end. In just a few minutes, speakers can take us on a transformational journey.

The best stories are ambitious.

Skillful storytellers explore significant, complex topics despite the constraint of a short talk. In a 2017 story, Ramya Mahalingam used a sophisticated highway metaphor to explore the limitations of empathy in user research.

Now is your opportunity to give one of the best talks at Enterprise Experience 2019.
