Staying Relevant: A Cross-Profession Look at Audience Engagement in the Era of Digital Technology

A joint program with the National Speakers Association

Communicators increase the impact of their messages by building trust, credibility, and a human connection. While professional speakers focus their craft on developing 30 to 60-minute, highly refined stage presentations, business communicators leverage a broad toolbox to inform, educate and engage audiences.

During this interactive panel discussion, members of IABC and the National Speakers Association will discuss how they use communication to influence audiences, and what challenges lie ahead from the rising use of artificial intelligence.

The program will conclude with an exercise in which you’ll mingle with colleagues from your sister organization.

February 11, 2022

Noon - 1:00 p.m. Eastern
Members and Guests of IABC and NSA: $20
