Sarah Stockdale is here to call BS. In her talk “The Myth of the Lonely Genius,” Sarah unpacks what it really means for us to harness our collective power and how social media is the perfect place not just to share memes and peek into our high school classmates lives, but to democratize networks and create a better world together. This talk focuses on actionable ways to build evangelical digital communities and networks. We’ll be exploring key insights from Sarah’s years of building a 6000 person, international student ambassador team through social.
