Michael Hann speaking at PCO Conference in Melbourne

Michael Hann

Michael Hann from Deep Blue Learning is now confirmed as one of six workshop presenters at the Meetings Industry PCO Annual Conference & Exhibition in November.

His topic is Building “Humane” Programs and Content.  He develops conference themes, content and then facilitates the subsequent coaching of presenters to deliver their content in an engaging and impactful way. His recent co-authored book “Humane Presentations” outlines how to structure and deliver a presentation in a way that will engage the audience in a natural way, making it easy for them to intake and process the content.

“One definition of “humane” is a commitment to the alleviation of suffering, and we could all concede that we have sat through programs and content that were anything but “humane”!” said Michael.   Not always, but often, event planning is dominated by logistics, registrations, flights, gala dinners, logos and social events, all vital things.

The “content” of the event however, is sometimes left to the individual presenter who turns up on the day with a usb stick, hands it to the AV operator, and starts “clicking” through it. Often to the dismay and inevitable suffering of the audience.   Michael said “This workshop will be “humane” and help you define for your clients what Content Direction is, why they should consider doing it and show you how you can help them through the process. Ultimately adding value to your clients’ events and to your business.”

All workshops are free to full conference delegates.  You can see the program at http://conference.pco.asn.au
