Most presentations are boring. Audiences of the past were satisfied with boring, dull presentations. Today’s audiences are demanding and sophisticated. They expect active engagement with relevant, cutting-edge, customized information, and they want to be entertained. 
When information is offered in brain-friendly ways, attendees:   
  • Transition to participants, 
  • Increase their retention, and 
  • Spread contagious enthusiasm. 
Designing a presentation that aligns with how the brain naturally learns ensures success.

    We had a good presentation today. Jeff Hurt was very dynamic. There were 72 participants on line and some good questions asked (and answered).  Comments from the post-event survey are very favorable. Be sure to check out the list of resources suggested by Jeff and the copy of the slides. Both have been added as attachments to this page. (Thank you, ELS!)
