The Program:

You’ve sat through boring speakers who talk *at* you for an hour (or more). You’ve learned it’s a great time to check your email and text with friends. *You* would never be a speaker like that.

But maybe you are and don’t realize it.

You need to integrate the newest research on how to design your presentation to align with how the brain naturally learns. When content is presented in brain-friendly ways, listeners become participants, increase their retention and spread contagious enthusiasm. Telling doesn’t equal learning. Nor does covering content mean content is learned.

Whether you focus on keynoting or training, you need to understand how to best implement the latest brain science to engage your audiences, and increase the chances they’ll remember and act on your ideas. Thinking, doing and participating reign!

In this session, you will:

  • compare and contrast information, education and learning
  • discover how to transition your presentation from expert-centered to a participant-centered model
  • learn brain-friendly strategies to make content stick, based on evidenced-based research
  • discuss effective audience engagement tactics for today’s participant-centered conferences
