We work in a multitasking, attention deficit world, and everyone is constantly distracted by email and emergencies. Who has time for a 50 slide presentation? These days people don't read, they scan. They don't listen, they multi-task. In today's environment, listeners only give 8 seconds of undivided attention before tuning out.

That means capturing and keeping attention isn't just a marketing skill - it's a daily communication requirement. In this class you'll learn how to capture and keep a split second attention span. You'll also discover a 4 step framework to communicate any concept clearly, pitch an idea in as few as 10 slides, and give compelling presentations that keep people engaged from start to finish.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize what’s changed in today’s business environment that requires a different way of presenting
  • Identify key concepts to maximize audience engagement and retention
  • Discover the 4 step framework to present any concept in as few as 10 slides
