I have spoken at dozens of events – conferences and corporate events for a wide range of organizations. Nothing is more fun and exciting to me than to develop a new talk and deliver it, hone it over many presentations, and share what I’ve learned (and am still learning) during my long career. Below are a few topics I’ve spoken about over the years.
Who doesn’t want to foster more creativity and innovation? At the same time, most “regular people” feel you either have it or you don’t (the ability to truly innovate.) But I think it’s clear that creativity and innovation are muscles that can be exercised. Shares a too-often-ignored skill–forgetting–which is the secret to true innovation and creativity.
This is a brand new talk that I have not yet given live. Reach out if you’d like to bring me to your event and present this topic!
Influence is like the holy grail – hard to find and yet valuable beyond compare. There are many ways to achieve influence, but when you lack authority, influence can be evasive. But there is a special secret that will allow anyone to increase their influence and it simply requires acting like an outsider. Outsiders have magical powers that make them highly influential and this session will talk about the most important four outsider attributes and how anyone can embody outsiderness to increase influence in their organization.
In this fast-paced highly rated talk, I cover a lot of ground – some evolutionary theory, some brain science, the science of visual perception, communications and storytelling techniques, and research-driven best practices about data visualiization and design. I’ve given this talk as a 45-90-minute session for standing room only audiences at conferences and corporate events around the world.
Here are a couple of conference talks and videos from a series of short tips and tricks to make all your visual communications better. Subscribe to my YouTube channel so you never miss an episode – and see the other episodes there!
