Are you a speaker, trainer or leader who wants to get — and hold — the attention of your audience; increase interaction; improve learning retention; and have more fun? During “Lessons in Levity” we’ll explore both the “Art” and the “Science” of incorporating humor in training design and delivery. Find out how humor can make your leadership training — and all other presentations — more engaging, more memorable, and more empowering for participants. Join us for an evening of "Great resources, relevant activities and interaction. Oh, and lots of laughter," as described by a past participant of Jeri Mae Rowley's workshop. Walk away with "so many simple ways I can improve my seminars by adding ‘levity’ opportunities to help participants learn.” (quote from another past participant).
