Got Your Attention?

How to Create Intrigue and Connect with Anyone

Book Cover for "Got Your Attention?"

Did you know goldfish have longer attention spans than we do? Nine seconds to our eight.

In this highly interactive session, bestselling author and ace communication strategist Sam Horn reveals her “secret sauce” for truly connecting with people—in a meeting, funding pitch, interview, presentation or on the phone, online or in the halls.

In a culture of impatience and infobesity, Sam’s innovative INTRIGUE approach shows how to genuinely engage busy, distracted people by pleasantly surprising them with relevant, “I didn’t know that” insights and instantly useful ideas that get smartphones down and eyebrows up.

“Sam’s ability to intrigue a ballroom of 800 people and keep them engaged from start to finish is extraordinary.  Our audience loved her interactive keynote that got their eyebrows up, kept their eyebrows up, and sent them out of the room with new ways to meet people and create mutually beneficial connections. Thanks for hitting a home run that made our annual awards ceremony a huge success.”

Erin Smith, NAWBO
