Denise Withers is the author of Story Design: The Creative Way to Innovate and Story Lead at the ocean conservation powerhouse SeaLegacy.

Denise worked for 20 years as an award winning documentary filmmaker for national TV networks, primarily Discovery Channel. When the blight of reality TV contaminated the airwaves, she left the media to earn her Master of Science in design and launch her own studio. She spent the next decade starting design labs and leading innovation projects for b-schools, b-corps and governments. Denise was the first to use narrative intelligence and story as strategic design tools; today, she continues to help global clients discover new ways to use story to design the future.
