What would it mean for your team or
company to make meetings less boring, customer interactions more
positive and persuasive, and projects easier to run?
In a relatable, enlightening, humorous, but practical talk, author and
writer John Bowe describes how the Ancient Greeks and Romans invented,
then taught speech for over two millennia. His simple, modernized
explanation of the art of rhetoric will use examples drawn from your
team’s daily communication struggles to illustrate solutions, and a new
way of thinking about communication.
Attendees will be given an easy-to-use template for speech preparation
that will save time and reduce the anxiety and fogginess that impedes
their performance in meetings, pitches, and presentations. John’s humor
and stories will be a welcome break from the workday, but his practical
solutions will be immediately useful for all.
