Chamber annual meeting to feature Pixar story creator

Aug. 16, 2018

One of the original story creators at Pixar Animation Studios will be the keynote speaker at the 112th annual meeting of the Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce.

Matthew Luhn, a storyteller, instructor, keynote speaker and story consultant, will speak Oct. 16 at the dinner program at the Sioux Falls Convention Center.

In addition to his story work for film, he works with Fortune 500 companies, entrepreneurs and other professionals, teaching how to craft and tell stories that bridge the gap between business and heart to build stronger brands and business communication.

Luhn’s most recent clients include Adidas, Facebook, BBC, Microsoft, Sony, Warner Brothers, Apple, Google, Clorox and many more. His story credits include Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Toy Story 3, Monsters Inc., Monsters University, Finding Nemo, Up, Cars, Ratatouille and other films in development.

The annual meeting also recognizes the departing board chairman and launches the one-year term of the incoming chair. Tim Sturdevant, president and CEO of Sturdevant’s Auto Parts, will take over the chamber’s top volunteer position Oct. 1, following Steve Van Buskirk, director of land development for Van Buskirk Cos. The contributions of retiring directors also will be acknowledged. Stacy Wrightsman of Sanford Health is serving as chair of the event, and Corey Weide of Morgan Stanley is leading the ticket sales team.

“This is our night to come together as a Sioux Falls business community and celebrate the successes of our community, highlight the work of our chamber and share the positive vision for the Sioux Falls region in the year ahead,” Wrightsman said.

The cost is $85 per person for chamber members or $170 for nonmembers. Tickets and table reservations will be available beginning Sept. 4.
