The Power of Empathy - finding empathy and resilience through storytelling

In a world that's increasingly divided and uncertain, we all need a little more empathy and kindness. That's where Garth comes in. With his passion for storytelling and his deep understanding of human emotions, Garth is a true expert in the art of empathy, and his keynote talks are sure to leave a lasting impact on your audience.


Through his engaging and thought-provoking presentations, Garth helps people to see the world through a different lens, one that's focused on understanding and compassion. He believes that empathy is a muscle that craves exercise. The more we understand and connect with others, the more we grow as individuals and as a society. Garth’s presentations and life learnings will teach you how to flex that empathy muscle and unlock its full potential.


At the heart of Garth's message is the idea that we are in each other's lives to improve each other's stories. Our stories are never truly finished, and with empathy, we can positively impact the lives of those around us, helping them to navigate life's challenges with grace and resilience.


But empathy is more than just a feel-good concept; it's a powerful tool for personal and professional growth. As a leading voice on the power of storytelling and the ability to be an empath through listening and sharing, Garth's presentations are perfect for both corporate development workshops and personal growth events and retreats alike. His approach is both practical and inspirational, helping audiences to see the world in a new light and empowering them to make positive changes in their own lives and in the lives of others.


Explore the transformative power of empathy, and learn how to build more resilience and compassion in your own life with Garth Russell.
