How do the various decisions you make about your behaviour with a client affect the connection between you and your clients and between you and your audiences? How can you improve your ability to elicit more favourable responses that will leave a lasting impression with your audiences and clients? David Cory will introduce you to a model of emotional intelligence and 5 areas to be more aware of to try to ensure you have the impact you intend to have.

Sitting is the New Smoking? How to Save Your Audience (and Yourself)

You’ve probably heard that “sitting is the new smoking.” As James Levine, professor of medicine at the Mayo Clinic, told the LA Times, “Sitting is more dangerous than smoking, kills more people than HIV and is more treacherous than parachuting. We are sitting ourselves to death.” How can you save your audience (and these days, yourself)?
This session reveals the evidence – for example, that our metabolism is knocked down 90 percent after just 30 minutes of sitting – and you will walk out of this session (or at least stand near your computer) with specific ideas you can use in your next keynote or workshop. You’ll learn five practical techniques to get your audience on their feet, more engaged, and paying more attention to you! You are in a position (preferably standing) to make a difference for your audience’s health, wellbeing, and learning.

Delivering Learning with Intelligence – How to Use Multiple Intelligences to Laser Focus Audience Engagement

What was your favourite subject in grade school? Phys’ed? Math? History? … Recess? Part of the reason we loved the classes we loved is because of the type of learner we are – interpersonal, mathematical-logical, naturalistic and more. Our audiences have “multiple intelligences” and our ability to not only reach and engage, but further to amplify, their learning is directly connected to our ability to deliver a program that meets those learning styles.
In this session you will:
  • Discover how to deliver with laser focus to your audience based on their MIQ (Multiple Intelligence Quotient)
  • Quickly discern “expected” learning styles based on industry and roles of your learners.
  • Explore effective learning tools that support individual learning styles and content “stickiness”.
  • Identify the modalities of the learners and how that impacts your learning tool selection.
  • Learn how to apply this to audiences of 8 or 8 000.

“Everything You Didn’t Know You Needed to Know About Privacy & Information Security”

Handling data is something we do daily, whether we know it or not. This, in effect, makes any business a data business. Taking care of privacy and security has many technical benefits, but it also spills over into tangible benefits on the bottom line.

In this presentation, Ross and Sharon will take you through some of the ways you can protect yourself, your customers, and your attendees from a cybersecurity perspective, while also talking to the benefits of taking a pro-active approach to privacy – much like what Apple and Microsoft have been doing in recent times.
From getting your emails through to people (without landing in spam!) to making your business more attractive to investors, handling privacy and security the right way serves as an immense benefit from comparatively little effort. The trick is to not be scared of it!

Join to see how to move from “scare” to “care” in this fast-paced environment. Technology moves at a tremendous pace, and there are a number of relatively simple things that can be put in place to bring you up to the same standard that corporates rely on – without breaking the bank or having much downtime.

Time Efficient Social Media Strategies to Boost Your Profit

In this session, I will help you create a systematic approach to your social media marketing strategies so that you can increase your revenue without increasing your workload!
Mariam Aziz

Mariam Aziz

When I became an entrepreneur I turned my passion into a business: writing. I was a copywriter and marketing strategist for corporations, and I was so excited to be able to do what I had always been told I couldn’t do – make a living from writing.

Then something interesting happened; I started missing my 9 to 5. Not the politics or the salary, but being a teacher (yes, I was once a teacher)

As Covid happened, it had and still has consequences on people’s employment and businesses. I started hearing time and again “I know I need a content writer and marketing help – I just don’t have the budget” or “I need help with creating my content – but I don’t want to delegate it,” and so I started consulting on content writing and marketing strategy to serve my fellow solopreneurs.

I merged my two passions together: writing and teaching. Wins are what fuel me. The moment someone gets something, the moment a person reaches their goal – that is why I went into teaching to begin with.

I have never felt so fulfilled in my work. I am on fire! Excited to make my cup of coffee and wake up in the morning, excited to serve, excited to grow and help others grow.

Now I am here to help you get excited to make your morning cup of coffee.
