I hope audiences learn something when I come to speak in their towns. Often, I learn something, too.

For instance, Hattiesburg is located in the Pine Belt, a region of eastern Mississippi. Don’t ask me to name the counties or define the boundaries.

I’m getting ready for the second of six trips to Mississippi before summer, and the first of two trips to Hattiesburg.

I’ll be at the February meeting of the Pine Belt Entrepreneurs to talk about “The power of digital storytelling.”

The official description:

Marketing has evolved rapidly with the rise of digital outlets. But what can cut through the din of commercials and crass come-ons? Stories. We are natural storytellers, but we must strive to improve our skills for our online audiences.

Wade Kwon, conference director for Y’all Connect Presented by Alabama Power, will guide you through the options and strategies behind compelling storytelling. His work as a writer, journalist and storyteller has helped companies reach audiences quickly and effectively. Learn the three questions that will transform your brand’s story into a saga worth sharing.

The free event takes place at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 18 at Regions Bank in Hattiesburg on 40th Avenue. RSVP online.

Can’t wait to check out Hattiesburg and meet these entrepreneurs. See you there!
