Keynote Presentations • WorkshopsPerformancesFox at ALPLM
Since 1980, Brian “Fox” Ellis, storyteller, author and educator, has been touring the world collecting and telling stories. He has been a keynote speaker and/or featured workshop presenter at hundreds of conferences ranging from The International Wetlands Conservation Conference to the National Association of Gifted Educators Conference. His presentations are always custom tailored with a mix of pedagogy and practice, humor and inspiration. For this reason many of the state educational conferences invite him back on a regular basis! He has also published more than 16 books, written 20 musical theatre productions and is a frequent contributor to a wide range of magazines including trade journals, parenting, academic and general interest magazines. Know that Fox comes to your conference eager to work: willing to present break-out sessions that reinforce his keynote, to share stories at an informal late-night for storytellers, and to autograph books at your sales booth. His goal is to do whatever he can to make your conference a success!
