Meet Your Instructor

Hi, I’m Shlomi Ron, the founder and CEO of the Visual Storytelling Institute, a Miami-based think tank that brings the gospel of visual storytelling from the world of art into more purposeful marketing. A digital marketing veteran with more than 20 years of experience working on both the agency and brand sides for Fortune 100/500 brands such as Nokia, IBM, and American Express, I started VSI to combine my marketing expertise with my passion for visual stories stemming from my interest in classic Italian cinema and my experience managing the estate of video art pioneer Buky Schwartz. At VSI, I help brands rise above the noise through visual storytelling consulting, training, and thought leadership. Select clients include Estée Lauder, Microsoft, and Cable & Wireless – to name a few. I’m currently teaching Brand Storytelling at the University of Miami’s Business School to pay it forward. You may have come across my name since I’m the host of the Visual Storytelling Today podcast, which ranks in the top 10 business storytelling podcasts on the web—writer of the six-year Visual Storytelling Newsletter. I’m also the author of Total Acuity: Tales with Marketing Morals to Help You Create Richer Visual Brand Stories, and I have recently written blog posts, presented talks, and organized events about emerging technologies like Web3 and AI to tell meaningful stories. I am a certified startup mentor helping startups effectively tell their business stories and achieve their goals. Outside work, I’m a budding bread baker, The Moth fan, and longtime fedora wearer likely to jive with my classic Italian cinema interest.
