Course Description

You’re sitting down to plan your workshop, talk, or retreat session, 
and as a typical presenter, you’re planning a value-packed session.

 Chances are you’re not giving a whole lot of attention to the ending – especially if 
you’re a fan of the 3 part model “tell them what you’re going to tell them, 
tell them, and then tell them what you told them.”

 Here’s the problem. These days people are overwhelmed with information. 
It’s coming at them from all directions – work, the internet, their smartphones, 
the TV, flashing billboards – and your session!

 That’s what you and I as presenters are up against. We have to break
 through all that noise and 
design our sessions in a way that our audiences can
 remember and use what we teach them.

 That’s where your session ending comes in. 
It’s the last thing your attendees will see, hear, and do before they leave your session. 
A plain old “tell them what you told them” summary just won’t do.

 You need to make your endings POWERFUL – so that your audiences remember 
and use what you’re teaching them. 
That’s how you make a long-term impact!

Ida Shessel

Hello, I'm Ida Shessel, M.Ed., and I believe that anyone who stands up to give a talk or workshop can get their message across in a way that engages, encourages, and empowers the people in the room. I have been instrumental in transforming the presenting and teaching skills of thousands of presenters, coaches, and experts – and have taught them how to design and facilitate sessions that enhance engagement, participation, and learning “stickiness” using audience psychology and adult learning principles. I can help you too!I have been a facilitator, speaker, and coach for over 30 years, a professor at Seneca College, and a consultant with an award-winning seminar company. Students in my sessions have come from government agencies, the non-profit sector, Fortune 500 companies, and small businesses. They are speakers, managers, trainers, VPs, CEOS, coaches, and experts -- just like YOU.I am the author of several business books including Communicate Like a Top Leader: 64 Strategies Top Leaders Use to Engage, Encourage, and Empower Others.Got questions?
