In today’s fast-paced world, executives are constantly being pulled in so many different directions, that they feel compelled to multitask – even during  annual conferences and industry events. We find them texting, emailing, surfing the web or even

talking on the phone- right in the middle the general sessions, breakouts and other important sessions. Short of having your attendees “turn their devices in at the door,” how do you hold their undivided attention?

  • In this webinar, we will discuss the following:
  • Ideas for light entertainment for opening sessions
  • Top songs to motivate and inspire
  • Tips for creating a dynamic screen content
  • Interactive polling technology
  • Tools for Twitter Feeds
  • Cost-Effective Staging for the “WOW” factor
