Just in time to kick off the new year, the Creativity and Innovation SIG and our featured video speaker Sam Horn will reveal how you can move beyond the elevator pitch to connect with anyone and capture their attention by making what you care about sound more intriguing.

Discover how to use techniques to win people’s attention, respect, and trust for your ideas and initiatives. During this collaborative session you will also have the opportunity to practice how you might use these techniques to propose an idea, sell your services or share research results in a more compelling way. Please consider having one of your initiatives in mind so you can instantly apply the techniques to create interest and win buy-in to it.

Speaking is not just about giving an excellent presentation. "If we want to succeed we must intrigue" - Sam Horn (featured speaker)
