    Do you have trouble recognizing the personalities of your audience? Are you interested in learning strategies to improve presentations with the needs of introverts and extroverts in mind? Join NACE in the final installment of the NACE Personal Development Series to learn strategies to become a better presenter. Learn how to engage both introverts and extroverts into the conversation and acquire engagement activities that accentuate both groups strengths.

    Following this program, you will be able to:

    • Differentiate between multiple learning styles in a group atmosphere;
    • Identify options that keep both groups interested and engaged;
    • Determine best practices to keep participant enthusiasm from hijacking the presentation; and
    • Examine strategies to increase overall confidence and success as a presenter.

    Registration includes three-month, post-event access to the webinar archive.
