The Big Takeaways

While this video is geared towards conference organizers, presenters like yourself can learn some worthwhile insights from the information Jeff shares.

Namely the following:

  • Audience members become zombie learners because they’re never given the opportunity to think or actively participant in the information being delivered to them.
  • When the focus is on the expert (that’s you!), audiences aren’t able to learn from the expert through a dump of information. Think about that.
  • This so-called conference Zombism can be avoided by creating an environment that doesn’t offer surface knowledge, but provides critical thinking moments for audiences to actually learn from what is presented.
