"You're your own toughest competition!" We've heard this cliche' many times, from many people. And while it may have been true at one point in time, it's true no longer. In 2017, we have a far greater competitor - the smartphone. Whether we're engaging somebody one on one, leading a sales training or hosting a board meeting, we're competing against that little gadget for our audience's attention. Every. Single. Second.

We think we win this battle by asking them to turn off their phones, but we haven't. Because the phone and all it entails...the notifications, the entertainment options, the social interaction, are still on the minds of everyone. They may be looking at us, but they're not actually listening to us. So what do we do? Become better than the phone.

In this webinar, award-winning comedian and longtime training professional Geoff Woliner will discuss how we can mentally transform into entertainers, and the tips and tricks we can use to capture and keep our audience's attention. After this webinar, you'll have turn-key solutions you can apply immediately, and ensure you never lose the attention span battle to smartphones ever again.


As a longtime stand-up comedian and expert in presentation skills, facilitation, sales, recruiting and association development, Geoff used this experience to create the framework of his company, Winning Wit, whose mission is "Bringing Humor to Life". Unlike many other communications consultants who try to turn you into them, Geoff uses his experience on stage to help you become a more dynamic you.

Recognized by Kentucky Bride Magazine, WTOP Radio, Brides and Weddings of Northern Virginia and several other outlets as a leader in comedic speechwriting and coaching, Geoff has worked with CEO's, law firms, entrepreneurs, private groups and individuals across every industry to help them successfully tell their stories to the world.

As the author of "The Wedding Speech Bible" series, Geoff shares best practices from the stage to help wedding parties write and deliver speeches that mesmerize audiences full of family and friends.Having worked as the National Chapter Manager for ATD, he has a deep understanding of the learning and development landscape and a passion for helping professionals in this industry thrive. Most of all, Geoff operates on one core principle: Your success is his success.
