10-Present to Students Like a Zen Master James Sturtevant Hacking Engagement

    • Courses

Presenting to kids in the 21st Century ain't easy! It's hard to engage them...then maintain their interest. When I presented in the past, I was always hypersensitive about my student's engagement level. I'd worry...Did I lose him? Is she listening? He looks like he's nodding off! How can I cover what I need to in the next 5 minutes? I consider myself an engaging presenter, but I was struggling! I needed a new way to do things.

My fascinating educator Voxer group made a remarkable book recommendation last summer. I was guided toward Presentation Zen by Garr Reynolds. Occasionally, I've run across books that alter my paradigm fundamentally. That was certainly the case with Garr's!

Please listen to this episode and learn how I transformed my presentations. Problem solved!
