Featured Presentation

Andrew K. Stein takes us on an interesting disection of a much loved Christmas song that describes the truly visionary foresight of the narrator to achieve a goal. Set the goal, identify stakeholders, etc., etc., as the narrator works toward her ultimate wish of owing a hippo! Andrew effectively walks us through the process, so sit back and enjoy this special non-holiday holiday presentation!

    I love Atlanta and I'm happy to support creative projects that bring people together -- like Pecha Kucha. And 5 years running StoryCorps Atlanta has taught me a lot about what makes a good story. I'm also a dedicated chicken mommy and I take my southern hospitality duties rather seriously.

She attended New York University where she studied Public Policy and then pursued her MBA from UVA. Desiring even more humidity for her unruly, curly hair, Sasha decided to take a job in the great humid state of Georgia. Sasha currently works in Product Marketing at Mailchimp, but when she’s not in the office, she enjoys taking her pup Huckleberry to explore parks near and far or sitting in the crowd at one of Atlanta's great storytelling events.
