*Help!* Handling Medical Emergencies at Events, for Event Professionals

Description

Medical emergencies can, and do, happen at events! How well event professionals are prepared to handle them makes all the difference between a great event (with a successful outcome for the patient) or a disaster.

There’s a lot to know. How do you approach and assess medical emergencies at events? How do you keep the event going at the same time? How do you make good decisions about patient care, and when do you need to call 911?

David Egan brings you his extensive background as a pre-hospital emergency medical technician, emergency medical services educator, and 20+ years as owner and operator of his own event venue. He’ll take you through everything you need to know, in this energetic and entertaining session you won’t want to miss.

Creating An Outstanding Wedding Tour Experience!

Description

Many wedding professionals ignore—or don’t know—the keys things that can bring them more weddings, earn them more money, and make them (and their clients) happier when they give venue tours to prospective clients.

Done well, that experience is truly powerful, and makes it easy for people to choose you, at your price.

He’s sat with thousands of couples as they planned their weddings, listening to what was said and what was unsaid, guiding and supporting them in making good decisions about their weddings.

3. After participating in this session, attendees should be able to more accurately identify and assess prospective client’s behavior.

Presentation on Presentations: Changed for Good!

Description

Great slide presentations—and great speakers—engage their audiences. They’re entertaining, they’re dynamic, they tell stories. And most important, they effectively convey the idea or information that the presenter wants the audience to get. Here’s why they work: those presentations don’t look anything like the charts and graphs and word-heavy, bullet-pointed, slide presentations that you’re used to seeing! The pace is different, the focus is different, and the visual content is vastly different.

In this groundbreaking and provocative session, you’ll learn to use a method of slide presentation called “slides as chorus,” that will put your presentations into an entirely new class, where people will sit up and take notice of what you have to say, and where you’ll truly reach their hearts and minds!

No matter what your purpose in presenting, David Egan will show you how to level up your skills in both content creation and presentation delivery so you can inspire, persuade, and educate your audiences like never before!

Learning Objectives

1. After participating in this session, attendees should be able to explain the design principles of, and design an outstanding slide presentation using, the “Slides as Chorus” method of presentation.

2. After participating in this session, attendees should be able to produce and present a “Slides as Chorus” method slide presentation to deliver content for maximum audience impact and comprehension.

3. After participating in this session, attendees should be able to prepare slide presentations using graphic design guidelines specifically focused on creating slide presentations optimized for how people learn best and retain knowledge.
