Connecting with Your Audience Through the Spoken Word–In-Person and On-Screen

April 17, 2019 | 2:00pm EDT

As professional speakers we have a history of presenting to groups small and large on the stage or in other in-person formats. We still do that today but presenting on-screen has become a huge part of our work today. 

In this special VIP Suite event, you get to experience two legends in the speaking profession, Patricia Fripp, CSP, CPAE, and Lou Heckler CSP, CPAE. Both also have received NSA’s highest award, the Cavett. They have helped thousands of people around the world with their wisdom, wit, and wonderful styles showing how to deliver spoken word messages to influence others.  

Patricia and Lou will give us their top-level, best-of-the-best material in this interview, and address what we need to know about on-screen presentations. What are the similarities and differences between being in-person and on-screen? Where are we going with this and what can be expected in the future of spoken word communication?

This is a rare chance for you to not only watch these two presentation masters, but to ask them questions. You can participate, in chat or on-screen to ask your most pressing questions.

Of course this will be recorded, but you want to be here if at all possible to give in on that interactive part of VIP Suite. The magic is in the moment! Come and be part of what will likely become a legendary presentation with these two living legends.
