How to research, craft and deliver a breakout session your audience wants to hear

The problem with non-professional presenters
Subject matter experts (SMEs) usually over-use their strengths. They know the details of their topics so well they forget what it’s like NOT to know them. So their presentation turns into a droning deep dive instead of a revelation of insights.  Crack… the breakout is broken.

Don’t let your subject matter experts break their breakout session

SMEs are often sent to standard presentation training months before they give a breakout. They’re taught to not look at their notes, keep their hands out of their pockets, and avoid saying “um.”  None of this actually helps them or their ultimate audience.

Just-in-time, only what they need to know
Brian Walter’s Don’t Break Your Breakout provides SMEs with five actionable tactics that will make an immediate difference in their next, imminent breakout session.

Don’t Break Your Breakout provides:

  1. Ask & Answer strategy for generating audience-oriented breakout content
  2. Moving from Information to Insight to Impact
  3. PSSST presenting (Point, Story, Show, Stat, Testimonial)
  4. Turning recipient into participants
  5. Sound Bite Summary

Supporting SMEs just in advance of when they are actually creating their presentation content is the magic timing for maximum impact.
