Ramp Up The Energy: 10 Ways Meeting Pros Can Energize, Entertain, and Dazzle an Audience

Nowadays, a goldfish has a longer attention span than a human.  Most audience members are distracted by the latest gadget and app. The key is to captivate your audience, increase interaction and idea sharing, make content more experiential, and make your meetings interesting and pertinent. Discover how to freshen up your meetings, breathe new life and energy into the agenda, while leaving a lasting impression that will generate positive word of mouth and inspire your audiences to return year after year.


Enthusiastic, Sassy, Energetic Fireball — That is Amelia Mimi Brown!

Mimi, as she is affectionately known, helps individuals and organizations add more power, pizzazz and punch to their presentations and meetings. With over ten years of corporate training experience, a knack for making meaningful connections with audiences and an insatiable appetite for helping others maximize their potential, Mimi knows how to rock a platform, connect with a crowd and provide training so that others can effectively do the same.

Mimi's down-to-earth humor compels audiences to laugh while they learn. She engages groups from the moment she steps in front of them and leaves them with empowering tools and focused mindsets that they will use long after the lights have gone out on the event. Mimi’s honors include being recognized as one of Oakland County Executive's Elite 40 Under 40, Ms. Michigan Plus America 2015, and a proud contestant on NBC’s The Biggest Loser.
