Session Highlights: Turning Off Your "UM" Switch and TED Talk Techniques
Presented by Ted Freeman, Monmouth County Sheriff's Office, New Jersey and Ted Freeman III, Ancora Fire Department

Turning Off Your "UM" Switch and Other Speech Detractions: A fast paced program that will eliminate common and irritating speech habits such as non-words, distracting hand and body movements that detract from your speech and message and learn how to eliminate these "speech killers" from your presentations.

Using TED Talk Techniques to Make Your Speech Clear, Concise and Compelling: A look at the techniques used in "Ted Talks" (Technology, Education, Design) that have made them so effective over the last 20 years and how to apply these same techniques to YOUR next presentation to make it a clear, concise and compelling talk!

Session Highlight: The Art of Herding Cats...
Presented by Fred Carmen, Security Supervisor at Holy Cross Germantown Hospital
The Art of Herding Cats... or... Classroom Management Made Easy: Ever had to teach "That Class"?
You know, the one that nobody wants to take but they've been told they're going? Or, maybe you've had "That Student" who wants to show you and everyone else why they're above the level at which you're teaching? And how about using technology that has decided to take the day off, just when you need it most? If you haven't, you will. This interactive classroom session will cover topics such as dealing with the "Know it All", the "Apathetic", and the "Class Clown". Participants will also learn how to "Take the Stage" and keep the audience engaged and informed. And, finally, students will learn the best room arrangements and pre-planning to avoid those "Technical Embarrassments" that are sure to rear their ugly heads.
