The popular and experienced presenter, Steve Yacovelli, owner and principal, Top Dog Learning LLC, will explore the ways in which library professionals can effectively create and deliver face-to-face messages to key stakeholders, whether it's at a local civic meeting or on a national conference stage. Participants will learn how to create an effective story; identify how "good" design can bring clarity to message; recognize how body language can help or hinder the message being delivered; and understand how people's perception of a speaker can impact the message that is received.
