Rethinking Presentations: Applying the Science of Learning to Make More Memorable Workshops, Meetings, and Presentations

Danielle Hennis July 5, 2022

How often have you had to endure presentations with speakers and slides that taxed your attention?

If you can’t pay attention to the presentation, you can’t retain the information. What would have made those presentations—what would make your presentations—memorable, influential, and successful?

This workshop will show you how to use structure, visuals, and stories to make memorable presentations. You will rethink how you have been developing slides and walk away with a step-by-step plan for creating impactful presentations. With your new skills, you will use outlines and storyboards to ensure your slides are not filled with mind-numbing text. Come to this session and leave with the expertise to plan your next presentation and never fall into the same pitfalls most presenters do ever again.
