- Understand that attendees are seeking to understand what your research and data mean to them and how it is applicable to their organization.
- Help attendees uncover what the content means.
- Create opportunities to discuss how to apply the content (example: "what one idea shared today are you going to try?").
- Connect to the attendees' emotions.
- See the attendees as co-creators along with you, not simply as a consumer of your information.
- Focus on what is in the best interest of the attendees for your session.
All proposals will be considered for future LAI events.
- Incomplete submissions will not be considered.
- Each presenter is limited to three proposals and each topic submitted must have its own complete application.
