GOT YOUR ATTENTION? Earn Attendees' Full Participation in a World of INFObesity


November 12, 2014 7:00 PM UTC until November 12, 2014 8:00 PM UTC

Did you know:

  • Goldfish, yes, goldfish, have longer attention spans than we humans do?
  • AARP reports that 35% of adults say they are chronically lonely?
  • Columbia researchers found conference registrants sit next to people they already know at events even though they say their purpose for attending is to “meet new people”

What’s a meeting planner to do in today’s culture of distraction, impatience, and disconnection?

Sign up for this webinar so you and your team members know how to produce events that:

  • Put cheeks in the seats with intriguing program descriptions and formats
  • Pleasantly surprise jaded attendees who have “been there, heard that”
  • Facilitate meaningful opportunities to connect and co-create (no silly ice-breakers)
  • Deliver so much bottom-line value, everyone feels your event was time/money well spent  

This all-new webinar shares original techniques from Sam’s new book GOT YOUR ATTENTION? How to Create INTRIGUE and Connect with Anyone, which has been called an updated version of Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and influence People.

This webinar will help you instantly apply Sam’s insights to your priorities and clarify how you’re going to win the attention, respect, and full participation of attendees at your events.

  • Earn the favorable attention and respect of busy, distracted, impatient people (on the stage, page or online) … in less than 60 seconds
  • Set up a collaborative “scenius,” (half-scene, half-genius) that actively involves participants so they’re connecting and contributing vs. sitting passively
  • Motivate participants to follow up and ACT on what they’ve learned, so they turn their good intentions into real-world results for them and repeat business for you
