Chairlift Chats is a series of articles (and occasional videos) I publish on LinkedIn and Forbes, when interesting people come to Park City, Utah.

My sketches use visual thinking to simplify complex ideas. They also help me figure out what is most important to communicate.

My Slideshares have attracted millions of views, and they are a great way for me to test content for webinars and workshops.

One of the most prolific and approachable of all LinkedIn Influencers, Bruce Kasanoff is a storyteller who uses words and images to help others.

He is the co-author with Amy Blaschka of I Am: Escape Distractions, Unlock Your Imagination & Unleash Your Potential, a #1 new release on Amazon in Health & Stress.

He is also the author of How to Self-Promote without Being a Jerk and also Never Tell People What You Do, both of which have been best-selling Kindle titles on Amazon.

His day job is serving as a social media ghostwriter (i.e. storyteller) for highly accomplished professionals, including CEOs and entrepreneurs, plus leading consultants, speakers, and authors.

Bruce advocates a more humane approach to business than many companies practice. He believes that your central mission should be to bring out talent in others, because that is the only proven strategy for maximizing your own contributions and success.

He also delivers webinars and workshops on the power of storytelling and how to harness it.

His personal credo offers a glimpse into his highly positive approach.

Bruce is also an abstract photographer whose photographs serve as a powerful reminder of the power of focus, patience, and presence.

Earlier in his career, Bruce was an original partner of Peppers & Rogers Group, where he helped popularize the strategies of 1to1 marketing and personalization. His 2001 book Making It Personal predicted many of the personalization practices that have become mainstream today.  

He has delivered hundreds of workshops, keynote speeches and training programs to a wide variety of organizations. Bruce earned an MBA at The Wharton School and has presented at Wharton, Yale University, New York University, and Fairfield University. He is a passionate skier who conducts Chairlift Chats in Park City, Utah.

One more thing... Bruce will cross the street to pat a dog.
