Saratoga Springs, NY (PRWEB) June 06, 2013
George Takei – Social Media Wizard, Expert Storyteller and Star Trek Star – will be a featured keynote speaker at Learning 2013 on November 5th in Orlando, Florida.
Best known for playing Sulu on the original “Star Trek” TV series and six movies that followed, George Takei is unlikely social media royalty. Unofficially dubbed the King of Facebook, he counts 4 million fans in his online empire — including “Trekkies,” Howard Stern listeners, and the LGBTQ community — who devour his quirky mix of kitten jokes, “Star Trek” references, heartfelt messages, and sci-fi/fantasy memes.
His current projects include the musical “Allegiance”, drawn from his experience of growing up in a Japanese American internment camp during World War II, and the recently published “Oh Myyy! There Goes the Internet”.
George Takei will be focusing on the ways in which storytelling has evolved with the growth of Social Media. Other keynote speakers include The Honorable Hillary Rodham Clinton and the U.S. Dept. of Education’s Richard Culatta.
Learning 2013 will be held in Orlando, Florida from November 3 to 6, 2013.
Learning 2013 is produced by The Learning CONSORTIUM, a collaborative of 230 global corporations, focused on improving workplace learning and training. Hosted and curated by Elliott Masie, Learning 2013 brings together several thousand learning professionals as they focus on the changing nature of workplace education and development. In previous years, keynote speakers have included General Colin Powell, President Bill Clinton, Apolo Ohno, Captain Sully Sullenberger and business authors Marshall Goldsmith, Ken Blanchard and Tom Peters.
