Rob Volpe presents Tell Me More About That
Monday, June 6, 7:00 PM
In-Store Event - Registration Required
A timely and important guide to developing empathy, in a world where it is increasingly lacking. Drawing on his years conducting thousands of in-home interviews with everyday people, Rob Volpe illustrates the 5 Steps to Empathy―the actions you can take to build a strong and reflexive empathy muscle.
Though he may have been invited into these homes as a marketing researcher, he left them as an expert on empathy. Along the way, he discovered that there exists a set of common values connecting us all. Strip away the exterior wrapping of blue state/red state, straight or gay, black or white, and we’re all far more similar than we are different. With empathy, we can all learn and understand more than we ever imagined possible.
Rob Volpe is an astute observer of life and a master storyteller who brings empathy and compassion to the human experience. As CEO of Ignite 360, he leads a team of insights, strategy, and creative professionals serving the world’s leading brands across a range of industries. A thought leader in the role of empathy in marketing and the workplace, Rob frequently speaks on the topic at conferences, corporations, and college classes. He has been quoted in Advertising Week, Mashable, Huffington Post, TheStreet.com, Gourmet Retailer, and The Chicago Tribune, among others. A graduate of Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, he lives in San Francisco with his husband and three cats.

As we navigate this step back to in-person events, we will be limiting event capacity to ensure a safe and comfortable experience for all attendees and authors. By requiring pre-registration, we can easily communicate event updates and policies with those who plan to attend, and can contact attendees after the event with follow-up information.

We may or may not be able to accommodate unregistered walk-ins, and seating priority will always be given to registered customers. We appreciate your understanding of this new process!
