R2: Recharge: Own the Room: Presentations That Captivate and Win Over Any Audience

Time: 10:00am - 11:30am
Location: 615-617

At some point, we are all called upon to make a presentation. If you’re investing time and energy in a message you need to communicate, you can’t afford to miss the mark with an ineffective delivery. Luckily, great presenters are made, not born. Anyone can confidently engage and persuade others by understanding what audiences truly want and the way adults process information. This dynamic program combines the time-tested wisdom of the Greek philosophers with the latest insights from today’s leading storytellers: Madison Avenue and Hollywood. By incorporating the latest psychological research on attention span, participants will learn proven techniques that work equally well in law firm, academic, government, and other law library settings. When all of these factors are taken into account and applied correctly, you can connect with audiences so that they listen more, retain more, and are more likely to act upon your recommendations.

Takeaway 1: Participants will be able to understand what it takes to establish credibility and appear more dynamic.

Takeaway 2: Participants will identify the keys to making a powerful first impression, building upon that momentum, and handling question-and-answer sessions with confidence.

Takeaway 3: Participants will explore presentational elements for effectively communicating value, increasing visibility, and emphasizing contributions.
