Keynote Session

Don’t miss the opportunity to learn from our Keynote Speaker, Allison Shapira, CSPTM, a renowned expert in public speaking and leadership communication, and instructor at Harvard Kennedy School, as she unravels the future of presentations in the world of AI.

Harnessing the Power of AI for More Creative and Impactful Presentations

Presented by Allison Shapira, CSPTM, Keynote Speaker, Author, Leadership Communication Expert, and Founder/CEO, Global Public Speaking.
The world of AI is constantly evolving with new advancements emerging every day, some of which we had predicted to be decades away. As we continue to create tools that surpass human intelligence, and are smarter and faster than we are, the future of human interaction and connection will undergo a significant transformation. 
When used responsibly, AI can serve as a valuable asset in communication and presentation by:
  • Simplifying the speechwriting process for busy leaders while maintaining authenticity
  • Assisting individuals in enhancing their communication skills and staying true to their unique style without compromising the creative process.
Learn how AI will make the human-human relationship even more important, and as such, the need for human-human communication and presentations will be even more critical.

"I’m excited that AI and other innovations will be part of the
Communication Mastery Conference in October. I’ve applied so much
from last year and can’t wait for more."

--Insights from a 2023 participant
