Front of the Room: Conferences to Staff Training

The Summer Camp Society Podcast

Feb 6 2024 • 1 hr 10 mins

Host Jack sits down with host EmJ AND host Allison to talk about talking at conferences. Meta? They dive deep into the (internal) struggle between having prepared visuals versus on the spot creating them, and draw many parallels to speaking at conferences and planning staff trainings. This includes: proactive versus reactive engagement and teaching, how to take audience questions, and starting things off with shared language and terms.

If you're looking for insight on how to think like a presenter and how it relates to staff training, this is the pod for you.

Producer EmJ's Takeaways:

  1. Think about the 3 most important things that need to happen or be learned during your session. Just do those really well.
  2. WHEN EVERYTHING IS A PRIORITY, NOTHING IS.
  3. Just give your speaker a little chuckle and head nod, it fuels them (read: Jack & EmJ).
