February 25-27 2015 – Gainesville, FL


Social change is a laughing matter. We’ll talk about using humor (and other emotions) effectively to educate and activate people.


What’s the latest research on influencing people and driving behavior change, and how we can use this power for good?


What’s the next big thing? We’ll talk with the futurists of public interest communication, the next-generation app makers, social network phenoms, and people who are using film and culture to change hearts and minds.

Who is Frank?

frank is named in homage to Frank Karel, a forward-looking communicator whose investment in our field gave it the vibrancy we have today.
