Giving Dynamite Presentations
DIETITIAN'S COMPLETE GUIDE TO GIVING DYNAMITE PRESENTATIONS THAT IGNITE PASSION AND ACTION
Great speakers, educators and therapists aren’t born, they're trained! Dietitians can make an enormous positive impression on consumers, their patients and clients, not just because of their message, but because of their ability to ignite passion, to spur people into action and to get their audience's motivation juices flowing to improve their health, career and/or personal life. Dietitians, do you want people to tell you, the speaker, that they drove twice the distance just to hear you present? Do you want to get professional speaking gigs on the podium in front of 1000 attendees? Do you want to get invited to speak again at the same conference, every year? Do you want your patients to attend all your classes? If YES, then you want to attend this webinar and receive this fun, EDU-TAINING verbal and written, take-home guide! The information is powerful, relevant, effective, and evidence-based!
