Costly Distractions, Finding Focus in a World at War for Your Attention
We receive hundreds of emails each day, attend meeting after meeting, get pinged with Tweets and notifications from multiple social networks and feeds. Water cooler conversations are no longer confined to the break room; they're everywhere all the time. Distraction has become the leading cause of under performance. The Digital Age has given us all A.D.D., Always Distracted Disorder, and it impacts our level of engagement, productivity, emotions, and even relationships. Curt identifies the roots of the problem, the way the brain is wired. For the first time in history, the devices we rely upon for work are also the easiest source of stimulation and entertainment. The good news is that there is a way to leverage how our brains are wired to turn distraction into functional action. Curt gives his audience the tools needed to make this transition and succeed in a workplace gone ADD.
Capitalizing on Attention, How to Present Yourself When Everyone is Watching
Stories told well have the power to change the world. Most get lost in the noise. A compelling story isn't enough, you've got to present it to your audience in a way that ensures your non-verbals do not rob your message of its impact. This keynote speech covers how to craft your message to grab your audience's attention, and how to deliver that message to keep it.
Alternate, 2-For-1 Bonus **
In this highly unique presentation, Curt uses the "Costly Distractions" speech as a concrete example for "Capitalizing on Attention", teaching the how and why of creating a powerful presentation. A speech within a speech. The Inception of presentations. The best of both worlds. Call it what you will, but know that you will be in for an experience unlike any you have had before. Learn the secret best practices of a professional communicator, plus the key ways you can tackle the distractions that plague you.
The Value of Attention, How to Capture (and Keep) Your Customers' Attention
There is a war for not only your attention, but your customers' as well. No longer is your primary competition simply the competing product sitting next to yours on the shelf. It's the literally thousands of options available at every single moment that keep your customer from noticing and remembering you, even if they need your product more than ever. The bad news is that it's never been more difficult to capture the attention of your customer. The good news is that those who understand the science of attention can consistently rise above the noise to be heard, remembered, and purchased by their customer. In this keynote, Curt uncovers the key insights, strategies, and information you need to capture and keep your customers attention.
