The Opportunities and Challenges for Communicators with Rachel Henderson, Vice President at WarschawskI


Rachel Henderson will discuss how virtual and augmented reality storytelling has the power to create strong emotional connections that change attitudes, actions and policies to shape our world. Virtual and augmented reality is the most immersive communications technology to come along since the movies. Brands can no longer ignore its true power to improve customer engagement with products and services or to train employees in new, unique ways.  

VR and AR programs also have the power to build human understanding for issues, places, or people we’ve not otherwise been exposed to in real life. It has the power to connect people from all corners of the world, and through these “shared” experiences in a headset, we can begin to find common understanding and compassion and make the world a better place. She will also be giving away a FREE pair of Google glasses and guests will be invited to turn their smart phone into VR glasses during the event.
