On Site Speaker Training - Sunday May 17 at 6:30 pm

PLM World knows  the value of good presentation skills. For the first time ever we are offering you a chance to a attend a professionally-delivered speaker training session.

Through the session Sizzle And Substance: Creating Brain-Friendly Presentations, you will: 

  • Compare and contrast information, education and learning in today’s environment.
  • Discuss seven brain-friendly strategies used for successful presentation delivery. 
  • Explain the importance of effective engagement tactics.

Most presentations are mind-numbing. Audiences of the past were satisfied with tedious, dreary, dull presentations. Today’s audiences are demanding and sophisticated. They want presentations with relevant, cutting-edge, customized information, with active engagement. This onsite training session will help you learn how to meet the demand of any audience. 

When information is presented in brain-friendly ways, listeners become participants, increase their retention and spread contagious enthusiasm. 


Please RSVP to kmodrow@plmworld.org by May 13, 2015.
