Are you ready to turn your ideas into workshops, presentations, and experiences that transform audiences?

This workshop boot-camp is based on Dr. Renninger's research on memory , attention span, and experience design -- recently featured on GOOD, Time out NY, and in the Wall Street Journal.

We'll take a look at some of the best presenters around to see what it is that they do differently. Then, we'll practice the 4 fundamental workshop development skills: storylining, slideology, experience design, and audience facilitation. Course size is limited to 10 people (7 spots are already filled via LifeLabs New York), and we'll become a learning cohort to help support one another.

Note - this course is not about practicing public speaking. It focuses on presentation design - the art of creating extraordinary learning experiences.
