You’ve been there before. Your mind wandering, eyes glazing over as you listen to a boring and predictable presentation. When people aren’t engaged, they’re not paying attention. And that means they’re not learning. So how can you guarantee your audience will sit up and take notice the next time you’re in the lead role?
Never fear, Sharon Bowman is here! Join her for Brain-Based Presenting: Getting the Brain to Pay Attention, an unforgettable hour of learning that will transform your training and presentation skills from just blah to a-ha.
