Education Sessions

Pat Johnson PIP. DTM: What Leaders are Made of.

  • Across the world today we hear the cry for leaders in all walks of life. Pat Johnson believes that leaders are developed, not born, and that leadership development comes with practice and awareness. We will discuss some of the foundational qualities that Pat believes are necessary in order for us to develop into effective and influential leaders.

Carol Carter ACG, ALB: Leadership Unlocked: 5 Keys to Being the Leader They Will Follow.

  • Carol Carter tackles the tough subject of how to get others to follow your leadership. She provides the framework and tools to find your leadership strengths and gaps. You walk away with easy steps to increase your “Followability Factor” and the method to craft your action plan to become your best, no matter what level your leadership skills are currently at.

Peter Scott CC, CL: Making Radically Better Use of Visual Aids: Everything You've Learned is Wrong

  • You will learn some radical but compelling principles about how to construct effective slides. Peter will go through the brain learning dynamics that will help you create arresting and useful visuals, applicable no matter what tool you're using. Where do you use text, when, why, and how? How do you determine the most effective images to use and when? Find out the answers to these and many more questions, plus the basics of making and displaying presentations if you're just getting started.

Karen Knight DTM: Evaluating Advanced Speakers

  • Have you ever been stumped on how to help an advanced speaker grow? Their voice is excellent; their body language appropriate; their speech is easy to follow. They’re perfect! So you give them a whitewash – and they don’t learn. This hands-on workshop will give you tips and practice on finding and pointing out the subtle things that can take a good advanced speaker to greatness.
