The amount of information available in our society has grown exponentially, leaving many of us overwhelmed by its quantity and underwhelmed with its usefulness.  In this chaos, we are all skirmishing for “shelf space” in the marketplace of ideas.  Why do some messages resonate and “stick” with us, while others quickly vanish into the abyss?  Why are people who are charming, witty, even captivating, become anything but that when shrinking into presentation mode”? How can techniques like storytelling, thematic structure, and improvisation be integrated to create a compelling narrative for people and their ideas?

Having the skill to communicate ideas that connect and resonate has never been more important, whether to an audience of 1 or 100. This unique program, jointly created by Syncopate Advisors, LLC and the law firm of Earp Cohn P.C., draws on the success of the best verbal and artistic communicators to offer a transformative approach for professionals to present themselves and their ideas. Thought-provoking, authoritative, and highly interactive, attendees can be certain that the content for this session will be “Anything But Obvious”… and the presentation “Anything But Dull.”
