Why Caroline McKenna?
Have you experienced death by powerpoint? Well look no further.
I hate powerpoint – do you remember all those slides your teacher/speaker/trainer used to show- hundreds of them and remember how you felt when they were all full of words and the person at the front used to read those words to you, every single last one.
Did it make you feel engaged? Part of the story? Give you any lightbulb moments?
Me either. That’s why I vowed when it was my turn that it would be different, that you would feel part of the story, you would learn and have actionable next steps and you would have had some fun in the process.
I’m pretty down-to earth with a passion for being around like-minded people and learning and that’s what unites every talk I deliver. Whatever reaction your looking for from your audience – I can make that connection.
I’ll take the time to understand you, your organisation and the purpose of your event.
It’s my duty and I take them pretty seriously to make sure your event is a success.
