Join us on December 12th for an extraordinary evening with Dolores Hirschmann.  The event starts at 5:30 pm with dinner and drinks in the CIE atrium followed by the talk with Dolores in the conference room.

Dolores is an experienced entrepreneur, coach, speaker and organizer of TedX talks. Dolores will be sharing a talk entitled:

18 MINUTES OF IMPACT: Moving from delivering information to engaging your audience.

This topic is designed for decision-makers, C-level executives, sales teams, and entrepreneurs. Participants will learn a step-by-step framework that will help them create presentations that engage and move their audiences to action. They will understand that every time they are in front of an audience they are responsible for an EMOTIONAL experience, and they will learn how to craft the message AND the experience into a seamless talk that uses both relevant storytelling, data, and case studies. 

WHY THIS TOPIC? We live in a world where information is available and can be delivered in an efficient and productive way. Leaders DO NOT NEED to deliver ALL the information in each presentation. Their job is to trigger their audience emotionally so that they can embrace the topic intellectually.


1) Participants will craft a talk they can present to the world

2) Participants will learn how to put presentations together easily and the best practices in effective presentations including the use of stories and how to integrate data and statistics while keeping the engagement

3) Participants will discover that the first 60 seconds of a presentation are the most important to ensure the audience is engaged and invested in what they have to say
