Block 82 Presents: “From Google to NPR: How storytelling has served me on my professional journey” on Nov. 9

Please join the UT System Office of Academic Affairs and the Office of Talent and Innovation on Monday, November 9, at 12 p.m. on Zoom for a conversation with Jesse Byrd, an NPR Foundation board member and award-winning writer and editor.

A former Silicon Valley techie who once worked for Google, Byrd pivoted to pursue his true passion for creating stories. His books have won four competitions worldwide and he is currently working with NBA athletes, major publishers and global nonprofits to develop original stories for young readers. During the Block 82 event, Byrd will break down the four key points of storytelling in a professional or creative environment and explain how to apply a deeper understanding of story for practical and positive business and community results.
