    FAR invites you to the May luncheon!

    "A Message They'll Remember - Using Stories to Make Your Point" 


    Speaker: Kathy Reiffenstein, Founder and President, "And...Now Presenting!"


    Have you hoped to engage an audience with vivid spreadsheets, charts and graphs only to find their eyes glazed over and their minds elsewhere?  The very numbers that spur us to action often leave others stuck in their seats.  The power of a good story, on the other hand,  inspires and energizes people to think and act.  Kathy Reiffenstein, founder and president of “And…Now Presenting!,” will demonstrate how to use powerful metaphors, anecdotes and examples that are bound to engage your audience. Join us for lunch and learn from a pro how you can add lasting impact to your business presentations. 

    Learning Outcomes:

    • An appreciation and understanding of how stories, including metaphors, examples and anecdotes, benefit audience comprehension and retention of data
    • Encouragement to try new presentation techniques through examples that utilize both data and stories
    • A “Tool Kit” of ideas to get started
