At Conferences, Institutes, & Corporate Seminars

An inspiring keynote speaker and workshop leader, Rafe Martin has spoken at countless international, national, regional, and statewide conferences, institutes, and corporate seminars.

International Storytelling FestivalRafe speaks eloquently about power of the imagination as he shares a uniquely practical and exciting vision of stories in words—both written and told. He demonstrates how reading, writing, and storytelling are actually the greatest adventures, capable of taking us on a journey deep into our own imaginations. He makes clear that storytelling, reading and writing may be the oldest technologies on this earth, but they remain the best—most effective and powerful—tools we have, even today, for teaching us not just how to become literate, but how to create meaningful lives.
