300 hundred seconds. That's all. The clock is moving, every second counts, 300 hundred seconds is all that stands between you and your audience, 300 hundred seconds is all you have to captivate or crash! As trainers, instructors and presenters we often begin our sessions with a formal greeting, followed by the agenda, a list of objectives, ground rules and logistics. We consume ourselves with pushing content and often forget that it takes only 7 of those seconds to form a first impression. From the moment they walk into the door, before you even say your first word, the clock is ticking. Knowing how to get your audience curious and enthusiastic about what comes next is the name of the game. After this webinar, you'll be equipped with real strategies for making the pre and post break times valuable and results-focused. Learn simple strategies that engage your audience in impactful activities the second they walk in! Don't waste another minute without learning the skills crucial to opening your session, tips to encourage your audience to return from breaks on time and exit your session anxious to share what they learned! Don't let the clock run out on you!
