Lunch and Learn Series
Unforgettable Presentations (Virtual)

July 12 & 26- 12:00-12:30 PM

ATD Greater Las Vegas is please to introduce a new opportunity for you. We will be opening our brown bags, logging in for 20-30 minutes Lunch and Learns throughout 2024. This series of 2 sessions, hosted by Darren LaCroix, will focus on developing effective presentations meant to help sell your product and message.

Do you want to deliver a good presentation, A great presentation, Or an Unforgettable Presentation? The process is different for each.

If you truly want you and your message to be UNFORGETTABLE, wouldn’t it make sense to learn from a coach who knows how?

Trying to be unforgettable without advice from an expert is like trying to assemble a new desk from Ikea without the directions and wondering why you have leftover 3 screws, 2 washers and a bracket!

In 2001 Darren LaCroix was tired of being average on the platform. He entered the speech contest against 35,000 contestants from 14 countries to take his skills to a level. His coach, World Champion Mark Brown, showed him what he had not known after being a presenter for seven years. Mark’s insights were essential to being unforgettable against some of the best speakers in the world. People still talk about Darren’s winning speech two decades later.

Darren will present 7 techniques to help delivery powerful and unforgettable presentations. The first 4 will be on July 12, and the remaining 3 will be two weeks later on July 26. 

He felt invisible in high school. He failed as a business owner. He worked in a cubicle for over a decade. Today he's a world champion speaker. What made the difference for him can make the difference for you. 

After a failed business in 1992, Darren LaCroix took a dare and took the stage at an open mic night at a Boston comedy club. He bombed miserably. It was horrible. The headliner that night told him, "Keep your day job kid." Friends told him that his dream of making people laugh for a living was crazy and stupid. He didn't listen.

He may have been born without a funny bone in his body, but Darren possessed the desire to learn and the willingness to fail. These were the essentials for achieving his dream. This self-proclaimed student of comedy is living proof that anything can be learned.

Less than nine years later, in 2001, Darren LaCroix outspoke 25,000 contestants from 14 countries to become the World Champion of Public Speaking…ironically with a very funny speech. Some said it was one of the best speeches in the history of the contest. Since that victory, has delivered keynotes in every state in the U.S. and 44 international cities. He is passionate about showing people that if you are a pray, find the right mentors, and become a sponge, anything is possible.

Darren is currently the only speaker in the world who is a CSP (Certified Speaking Professional), an AS (Accredited Speaker), and a World Champion of Public Speaking. In spite of this, Darren always reminds people, “The letter after your name are not as important as the professional you become in the process.”

He is the author of the book 17 Minutes to Your Dream, the co-author of Deliver Unforgettable Presentations and the co-host of Unforgettable Presentations podcast. Through his live workshops and Stage Time University.com, he helps good presenters become UNFORGETTABLE.

This is a Virtual Event, and you will receive 1 CEU for attending both Lunch and Learns
