Need tips on how to deliver your talk at AIHce EXP? 

Have you ever suffered through one of those awful sessions? You know, the one where you can’t read the tiny print; there are more bullets than in the “Rambo” movies; or you just nod off. None of us want to be “that speaker” – the one who reads their slides without a care for their audience without engaging us. We all know several of the “don’ts” of speaking, but do you know the “dos” and especially how? This session focuses on what you can do to make your next session at AIHce EXP a really compelling one that leaves people talking about it (in a good way). Through demonstrations of various techniques while covering the topics, you’ll learn how to tweak or revamp your staid session into a stellar one.
