What could go wrong? Everything or nothing, as this session vividly demonstrates through a creative combination of comedic act and presentation analysis.
The presentation gets off to a rocky start when the presenter—former Disney leader Lenn Millbower—is locked out of the room and his not-very-good brother Les takes over. Calamity follows calamity as Les communicates ineffectively, turns easy-to-comprehend information into complicated mush, displays hideous slides, and blows up the laptop. The comedic segment ends as Les runs from the platform in total disarray. Lenn then takes over and, with the participant’s help, discusses what can go wrong in a presentation and how to prepare for the worst.
Lenn Millbower, the Mouse Man™ and author of Care Like a Mouse, teaches Walt Disney inspired service, leadership, innovation, training and success strategies. Everything Disney touched seems magical. It isn’t. It’s method. Lenn saw that method up close. He spent 25 years at Walt Disney World: Epcot Operations trainer, Disney-MGM Studios stage manager, Animal Kingdom opening crew, and Disney Institute, Disney University, and Walt Disney Entertainment management. Now he shares methodologies that will help you make your own magic. Connect with Lenn on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and at www.likeamouse.com.
