The Much Anticipated Moment…

While we have kept you waiting, we are now ready to reveal some of our speakers that will help you get #Plugged In! We are excited to have two great community leaders; John Herman and Ben Crawford, from Epipheo, speak at the 12th Annual YLS!

Epipheo is a digital storytelling firm headquartered in Cincinnati. Epipheo created a new industry in 2009 by producing animated explanatory web videos for startups and large brands like Google, Facebook and Amazon.  They help their clients discover the true human value in what they do and use storytelling as the primary means to communicate that value.  Their equation is simple. Epiphany + Video = Epipheo. John and Ben understand the importance of being “Plugged In” to the right sources and believe in sharing words that can change lives. By creating videos in a fun and relatable way, Epipheo allows people to utilize powerful ideas and products. We think they put it best, “There is nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come.” Everyone has ideas and Epipheo helps those ideas come to life. Check out how they make this happen!

John was born and raised in the Greater Cincinnati area and received his business degree from the College of Mount St. Joseph in Delhi.  When John’s not working at Epipheo’s secret lair in downtown Cincy, he can be found driving around on his old, red tractor at his homestead in Burlington, KY and spending quality time with his wife, Renee, and four young children.

Ben is an author, entrepreneur, owner, adventurer, father, and husband. In his pursuit for freedom he loves challenging the status quo and does not stop short in pursuing how the deepest truths impact our everyday lives. He has been featured on the front page of CNN, the NY Times, NPR’s “This American Life”, and been the subject of a full length documentary.

Together, they use their epipheos to share impactful messages that can make a difference in people’s lives. By sharing valuable sources of information with their communities, they give us all an opportunity to “Plug In.”
