Keynote – Mentor Dida
Since he was a kid, Mentor loved storytelling. As an adult, he realized that stories have the power to do so much more than just entertain. They can inspire, they can motivate, they can change the world. His experiences give Mentor the stories that touch changemakers’ hearts and minds – inspiring connection and purpose in action for the good of all. Together, let’s explore how storytelling can propel young changemakers and their teams to new heights of success and impact – as well as ignite purpose and compassion as a driving force for innovation.
