Brain-Based Presenting: Getting the Brain to Pay Attention

Brain-Based Presenting: Getting the Brain to Pay Attention

This On-Demand event was originally presented on March 20, 2019 (60 min)


You’ve been there before. Your mind wanders, 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. A popular speaker and the expert on brain-based instruction, Sharon knows the secret to making any content memorable – even when the topic is dry, technical, or complex – and she’s ready to share her knowledge with you. Not only will you leave with tools you can put to immediate use, but you’ll also be privy to a host of free, web-based resources you can use to maximize effectiveness.

Attendees will learn

  • Brain-based presentation strategies that will make content engaging and memorable.
  • What makes the brain “fall asleep.”
  • Practical concepts and effective presentation techniques you can apply to any learning environment.
  • How to employ brain-based resources to enhance your use of cognitive neuroscience as it relates to learning.

“Sharon went far beyond my expectations! I’ve heard many times to insight emotion or add contrast, but she explained it so I completely understand now what that means specifically. This was a perfect webinar, I wish it was longer!”
