Announcing Our Morning Keynote Speaker Babette Ten Haken

Babette Ten Haken

"Build Trust. Tell the Stories Strategic Partners and Clients
Really Need to Hear

Do strategic partners and clients trust the stories you tell? Do you trust the stories you tell?

Your stories begin with how you respond when people ask: “What do you do?” Are your stories actually outcomes-focused, use- or business cases, which often stop just at the point where they need to continue? Leveraging co-created storytelling attracts, grows and retains partners and clients who are best-suited to grow, expand and sustain your business.

In this keynote, you will:

  1. Discover the key elements of legendary storytelling so you can create the stories which become embedded in partners’ and client’s minds, catalyzing them to take action.
  2. Expand your storytelling scope across the continuum of stakeholder voices residing within partner and client organizations: regardless of job titles, pay grades, levels of education and generations.
  3. Rediscover the purpose-driven value differentiation that you bring to partners and clients, which often lies dormant, or buried, within the stories behind the stories you tell.

Leverage courageous and compelling storytelling as your key to business growth: acquiring, serving and retaining strategic partners and clients. Co-created strategic storytelling creates Trust: the most powerful stakeholder, partner and client experience of all. Get to where you all need to go: Together.


Babette Ten Haken leverages One Millimeter Mindset storytelling to catalyze purpose-driven communication and value differentiation across job titles, pay grades, levels of education and generations, especially in industries wrestling with workforce capacity for technology change. She serves multiple industries, including those characterized by STEM professionals and left-brain thinkers who often reside in disparate organizational silos. Babette leverages storytelling to simultaneously translate across the traditional business-technology-operations communication abyss to create more professionally diverse, inclusive, profitable and purposeful internal and external partnerships. Let storytelling become a key component of your business strategy. Babette focuses everyone on what they have in common, rather than on what separates them. When you better serve each other, you better serve your clients and strategic partners.

The activities are supported by tools and models from Arbinger, Lencioni, and several performance improvement researchers.
