Inspiring Audiences: Deliver Your Classroom Message Effectively Every Time
To expect action from students, educators must use the three legs of educational inspiration, story, style, and staging, when developing and delivering educational content. When educators develop and present programs, we don’t do it to display our PowerPoint skills or to show off the speaking tips we’ve gleaned from the latest TED talk. True educators build and deliver programs to inspire and enable their audiences to help move emergency services forward. So where do so many go wrong? This program isn’t about PowerPoint tips and tricks (although some are included). Rather, it demonstrates effective communications and message delivery techniques, tools for successful student / attendee engagement, and presentation of a compelling “call to action” designed to motivate attendees to effect positive change in the way that we work for, care for and protect our communities.
