Michael Margolis, Founder & President
As the son of an inventor and an artist, Michael always asked the unpopular questions that got him picked-on in school. Being left-handed and color-blind didn’t help with his coordination or fashion sense either.
Michael learned to channel his inner-geek, and as a social entrepreneur, co-founded two Digital Divide nonprofits – before the age of 23. For the past decade, Michael has worked as a business storyteller and pop anthropologist, for many years as the founder and president of his prior consultancy Thirsty-Fish.
In 2009, Michael launched Get Storied — an education, advisory, and publishing company; with a goal to teach the world how to think in narrative. Michael takes the traditional notions of storytelling and re-invents them in the context of branding, innovation, and culture change. His work and ideas have been featured in Fast Company, BrandWeek, PSFK, and Storytelling Magazine, among other places.
His popular book, Believe Me: A Storytelling Manifesto for Change-Makers and Innovators, quickly turned him into a leading voice in the world of storytelling. Michael also teaches Brand Storytelling as an executive education instructor for the Schulich School of Business. Michael was born in Ohio, grew up in Switzerland & Los Angeles, and now considers New York City home. He eats more chocolate than the average human.
