Jason Allen Ashlock has spent the last 15 years tracking the power of narrative. Chasing it across graduate studies in religious history, then in literary theory, leveraging it inside high-stakes publishing and digital media disruptors — and now activating it deep inside global enterprise. His findings reveal how stories shape our understanding of self and world, his consulting work enlivens communications practices in companies around the world, and his keynotes train organizations of all kinds how they can intentionally harness narrative intelligence in order to connect, influence, persuade, motivate, innovate, forecast, and transform. Jason is a Partner at consulting firm The Frontier Project, where he leads the storytelling and publishing practice for the company’s global enterprise and international non-profit clients. A widely-read contributor to Inc.com, where he writes on storytelling’s application across disciplines and industries, he lives and works in Manhattan.
