Getting Out in Front; Meetings Industry Trends Impacting Speakers

Are you prepared to make changes in your delivery and style to connect with next generation learners? Would you like to know what you can do to be out in front of the trends instead of racing to catch up? Yes?
Then join Sarah as she shares the latest meetings industry research and data and how it will impact speakers. Learn what audiences will expect (and demand) by 2020 and what you can do to be out in front of the curve.

Sizzle & Substance 

Discover how to transition your speech from expert-centered to a participant-centered model. When content is presented in brain-friendly ways, listeners become participants, increase their retention and spread contagious enthusiasm. Learn how to design your presentation that aligns with how the brain naturally learns to hit a home run with your audience every time. Discover why telling doesn’t equal learning. Thinking, doing, and participating reign!
