Get Them Hooked to Get You Booked: The No-Brainer Approach to Exciting the Brains in Your Audience

with Scott Halford, CSP, CPAE

Why is it that some speakers and trainers hit a homerun nearly every time they speak? The answer isn't as apparent as you might think. If you want to find out the answer to that rather complex question, come listen as Scott Halford CSP, CPAE from Denver, Colorado, dopes up your dopamine (your learning, reward and pleasure brain hormone) and helps you understand how the human brain responds to certain teaching stimuli, messages and message framing.

Scott is an expert in neuro-behaviorism, including emotional intelligence and critical thinking. He works globally with the largest corporations in the world teaching executives about the bottom line benefits they achieve when they understand the intricacies of human interaction. Scott's natural, humorous and insightful style will get your brain popping as it wakes up to all of the possibilities you have to create a brain enthralling program. According to Scott, if you have their brains, you have them hooked. If you have them hooked—you will get booked.

See why audiences say Scott is "incredibly engaging," "he connects with the audience," and "he is absolutely fantastic."

Scott is an Emmy Award® winning television documentary writer and producer and author of the bestselling books Be a Shortcut: The Secret Fast Track to Business Success, and his latest Activate Your Brain. Scott has been an active member of NSA and NSA/Colorado for 20 years and has served on the NSA Board of Directors as Treasurer. In July of 2014, he was inducted into the Speaker’s Hall of Fame. His mother thinks he's more famous than he actually is.

Scott’s expansive knowledge in the areas of achievement psychology, which includes brain-based behavioral science, emotional intelligence, critical thinking, and the principles of influence add richness and depth to his programs.
