    How You Can Be Inclusive During the Holidays

    With Calvin Gibbs, Jr., DTM2

    It's the perennial "December Dilemma." Every year in the midst of several religious and secular holidays, emotions can be heightened, tensions can rise, and misunderstandings can occur. Even those with the best intentions can make mistakes. Learn what NOT to do so it won't be YOU this holiday season.

    Cooking with Bori

    With Elizabeth Colón-Rivera

    On the enchanted island of Puerto Rico, the holidays are a family affair. Everyone gathers to celebrate with a parranda, coquito, and food. Our traditional plate is arroz con gandules, pernil and pasteles that will leave you wanting more.

    Improv, Forks, Knives, and DEI

    With Valerie Fuson

    Use the Power of Facilitation to Grow Your Speaking Business!

    8:30 am - 11:15 am Central

      Presented by

    Eddie Turner, CSP

    Increasingly, meeting planners are asking for it.  Audiences are demanding it.  What is it? More interaction from speakers!  It is no longer enough to be the “sage on the stage.” The highly-paid speakers have discovered the key to engaging audiences is to become a facilitative speaker—both in their delivery of keynotes and training and in customized workshops that follow these events.  The COVID 19 pandemic forced everyone to pivot to virtual work and virtual programming.  This increases the need for speakers to master the power of facilitation. This program will explain and demonstrate how professional speakers can use the power of facilitation to grow their speaking business.

    Learning Objectives

    1. Define facilitation and why it matters for speakers.

    2. Identify opportunities for facilitation.

    3. Explain methods and techniques appropriate for speakers.
