How is Dan as a closing speaker at multi-day conventions?
It can be difficult for a speaker to get the audience involved at the closing session at a convention. This is especially true if there are parties, people are going to be up late, then up early for several days in a row and the closing event is after lunch. Dan’s natural style is to have fun and be engaging in a way that builds rapport with the audience. He will get everyone up and moving, keeping them active physically, mentally and emotionally. He will lead them to see that no matter what the challenges are, they have the ability to take their success to a new level and they will leave inspired to put their plan into action when they return home.
How else can I use Dan to make our event extraordinary?
Dan’s has highly engaging team building session, “The Breakthrough”, is often added to “blow the roof of the event.” He will lead the participants through an exercise that will challenge them to see what is possible and break through an barriers (real or perceived) that may have been holding them back.
Dan can help coordinate and lead a panel discussion of your top performers. Many conventions do not have an effective way to share the best practices of their top people. It will add more value if the questions are well thought out in advance and Dan can moderate to draw out the best ideas.
Speaking at your convention is an important moment for your presenters. If they are professionally coached by Dan, you will see an amazing improvement in their performance. They will learn the keys to opening and closing their talks, engaging the audience, organizing their message and how to get switched on to be at their best!
