The Art of the Fast Turnaround - Playing All Out 

Every speaker has, at some stage, found themselves literally one moment away from chaos…

So how do you turnaround that chaotic situation? When you recognise you are stuck and not achieving what you set out to do, you need to be able to push through and step up to the challenge. In this interactive session, Martin Brooker will share how you can push through uncertainty by knowing how to get above the fight, step up and move beyond being stuck to re-commit to that excitement that got you started as a speaker in the first place. The Art of the Fast Turnaround will provide you with quick fire strategies to get back to achievement, make bold decisions and act to take the next step right now.
