The Greater Twin Cities Chapter of the Association for Talent Development Presents

October Coffee Talk

How to Engage Your Audience and Rethink Hiring (Using a Bike!)

In a world where everything is being done “virtually”, it is more important than ever to find new, creative and fun ways to engage with your audience. Far too often, presentations are boring and lack-luster leaving participants wishing the torture would end and drifting mindlessly away to other more interesting and relevant topics even during the presentation itself. But what if things were done differently? What if we could still capture the interest and imagination of our audience while presenting meaningful, powerful new concepts that would help participants gain new skills and understanding about your topic.That’s exactly what this session is all about – demonstrating how we can engage our audience while conveying an important and relevant new skill – and not
losing their focus and attention.

In this session, our skill building will be focused on how to Hire and Onboard the Best Talent. And the presentation itself will demonstrate new methods for presenting, sharing and engaging your audience.

The primary learning objectives of this presentation include:

  • Re-think how to use interactive presentation tools and techniques for virtual learning.
  • Recognizing how visual metaphors are powerful models for teaching and memory hooks.
  • Understanding how a bike is a perfect metaphor for a business.
  • Exploring new methods for hiring and on-boarding employees during this challenging economy.
