The memory of certain panels or presentations lasts long after an event is over, usually because of a strongly framed idea and thanks to speakers who are both meaningful and impactful. In this webinar, you’ll hear how to define the scope of a session, how to select the right speakers, how to prepare yourself and your presenters, how to give a powerful presentation or moderate a substantial panel, how to maximize your audience’s takeaways, and countless other tips that Anne E. McBride has acquired in more than a decade of organizing, moderating, and presenting culinary programs.

Our Speaker Series are free and open to all, you just need to register! Recordings of each Speaker Series are available afterwards to current IACP members.
