4. The annual events in Washington DC have all been connected in varying ways to the theme of storytelling. Some of the events have been tightly focused on organizational storytelling. Some have been focused on using storytelling to revolutionize the world of work. Some have been more broadly focused on storytelling in general, i.e. storytelling beyond the use in organizations, e.g. for personal renewal or simply for the pure pleasure of storytelling per se. The Reinvention Summit was focused on storytelling for personal, business, and social reinvention I am mainly interested in:

6. A number of people associated with annual Spring event have written books on topics related to storytelling, including Madelyn Blair ("Riding the Current"), Steve Denning ("The Leader's Guide to Radical Management"), Seth Kahan ("Getting Change Right"), and Michael Margolis ("Believe Me: a Storytelling Manifesto for Change-Makers and Innovators") to cite just a few. One possibility for a Spring event would be to organize specific workshops (two-hours, half-day or one-day) in which people would learn in more detail about the principles and practices expounded in one or more of those books. I would be interested in a workshop about:
