How to Switch Your Audience On! Show Business Strategies in Business Communication
This keynote examines some of the tried and tested storytelling techniques that have been used for years in film and television. These include the concept of the 'hook' to grab attention, the element of surprise, and a call to action. We show how each of these show business strategies can be applied in business communication and staff team-building.
Show & Tell: New Communication Technologies
Communication technologies have changed dramatically in the past 20 years. It is now possible for anyone to convey any message, in words and pictures, to another person or group anywhere in the world - instantaneously! This keynote describes the potential and possible future directions of both mass media and the social media. Also, we demonstrate how visual illusions can help us to understand how the brain works.
