Marcey Rader, an author, and speaker who focuses on productivity and health wants to disrupt the status quo of ill health and reactive behaviors and inspire people to be and do what they think they can’t.
In addition to the obvious preparation, when a company wants to customize their presentation,
- Marcey sends a “score card” to attendees – it’s a survey on Google Docs to gather information
- and then creates an infographic and handout from those score cards
Her material for new presentations invariably comes from feedback from the audience. Her newest presentation is about distraction in the workplace which is a direct result of audience insights.Use feedback from your audience to create new presentation content. #tip from @MarceyRader on the KEY5 #Speakers… Click To Tweet
