Lorne Kelton, CAPS Canada President

Talk is Cheap: The Expertise Imperative

Our job on the platform is not to tell our audience how to think but rather to give them questions to think upon.

Your value as a speaker rests in your ability to deliver actionable ideas through a combination of effective storytelling and stagecraft.

Of you are not painting vibrant mental pictures or slaughtering sacred cows, then you will quickly fade from memory.

By converting your words into a multi-sensory experience, you will evoke the emotional responses necessary to unleash your expertise.
