Connect Fast: How to Open Any Message with Style and Impact
Getting started on the right path when you’re speaking or training can be an overwhelming challenge! With the increasingly reduced attention span common to many audiences today due to digital devices and other factors, grabbing attention in those initial moments remains critical to success.
In this experiential session, you’ll be introduced to four proven techniques to open your presentation so they’ll stop looking at their phones and listen intently to you. The opening strategies are designed for both internal and external messages, and can be adapted for both planned and last-minute speaking opportunities. The techniques can also be applied at other key intervals in a presentation as well.
