Empowering an Audience

After delivering two highly successful programs at the 2010 Annual Conference, Thaler was invited to deliver the closing plenary of the 2011 Robert Wood Johnson Local Funding Partnerships Annual Meeting. Thaler recognized the profound responsibility of this role, and delivered a plenary that enabled participants to thoughtfully reflect on their conference experiences; synthesize and then apply lessons learned; and construct a story of their experience that resonated and that they could share with colleagues.

The plenary was extremely well received, and feedback included the following:
“One would typically think of storytelling as an ‘art’ that required natural talent, but Thaler gave us all empowering strategies to learn how to use this powerful tool. Excellent!”
“She is a very entertaining speaker.”
“I will definitely integrate this learning into practice.”
“Awesome.”
