Non-Linear Presentation Design
Speak to the group that shows up
Add a different approach to program design, presenting, and facilitating to your tool kit.
In this presentation, John Losey shares his non-linear presentation design that allows participants flexibility while still hitting all the key learning objectives. Participants engage when they feel the presenter understands them and isn’t just pushing through a script. Facilitators and speakers who can read their audience and adjust to meet their unique needs connect better and create a greater impact.
Non-linear presentation design gives your presentation the flexibility to easily meet the needs of the people in the room. A non-linear design allows you the flexibility to use same material in various ways. Move beyond PowerPoint notes as handouts, a non-linear design can produce a much more powerful and interesting take-away for your participants.
With a solid foundation in theory and application spanning over 30 years in teaching, training, and facilitation, non-linear presentation design has been successfully applied in such diverse settings as:
Join us as we experience a non-linear presentation and look behind the scenes to explore how and why this approach works.

L&D ROI: The False Grail We Need to Forget?
There are many ways that learning professionals evaluate the effectiveness of learning interventions, as illustrated by the Kirkpatrick Model. Many business leaders however believe that the only true metric to quantify the effectiveness of a learning intervention is Return on Investment (ROI).
Should learning leaders use ROI to calculate the value of their efforts? Is it even possible to accurately calculate ROI? Or is that idea simply a myth that learning professionals should stop pursuing? Join your fellow colleagues as we explore these questions. Our discussion will be inspired by a recent article from TrainingZone.
Building The Leader of The Future
Driven by complexity and fueled by rapid change, the practice of leadership development continues to evolve. How? What's new, what's not, and what do learning professionals need to do to support the development of leaders in the modern world?
Join your fellow colleagues as we explore best practices in leadership development. Our discussion will be inspired by a recent article from Chief Learning Officer Magazine.
What The Data Says About Women In Management Between 1980 and 2010
According to a recent article in the Harvard Business Review, advancement toward gender equality has slowed since the 1990s for three major reasons: people's attitudes stopped becoming more gender egalitarian, occupations stopped gender integrating, and the gender wage gap began decreasing at slower rates. There have been dozens of studies showing how the progress in gender equality experienced during and immediately after the feminist movement of the 1970s has not been sustained through the 1990s and 2000s.
Does this stalled revolution play out in management positions too? And if so, how? Join your fellow colleagues as we explore, discuss, and share our perspectives and experiences.
Manage Your Energy, Not Your Time
Most of us respond to rising demands in the workplace by putting in longer hours, which inevitably take a toll on us physically, mentally, and emotionally. This leads to declining levels of engagement, increasing levels of distraction, and high turnover rates.
What can we do differently? Join your fellow colleagues as we explore, discuss, and learn together. Our discussion will be inspired by a recent article from The Harvard Business Review.
Self-Awareness: The Ladder to Leadership Success
Recent research published in the Harvard Business Review indicates that only 10-15% of people are truly self-aware. Without self-awareness, ongoing introspection, and social insight, we miss key opportunities for improvement (both in terms of closing performance gaps and capitalizing on our strengths).
Join your fellow colleagues as we discuss how individuals can enhance their self-awareness and how organizations can enable their people in this area. Our discussion will be inspired by a recent article from Chief Learning Officer Magazine.
Training's Role In Preventing Sexual Harassment
The rising tide of allegations and the #MeToo campaign point to the need for better workplace discussion and a culture where victims feel they can come forward. What is the role of training in preventing sexual harassment? What impact do current organizational training efforts have in preventing sexual harassment in the workplace? What can organizations do differently to increase the effectiveness of their efforts?
Join your fellow colleagues as we explore and discuss this hot topic. Our discussion will be inspired by a recent article from Chief Learning Officer Magazine.
