Intelligent Talk Show

Have you ever wished there was a way to spice up those important – but often boring – panel discussions at your association or company meeting? Now there is: Recently some of your fellow meeting professionals have retired that drab, draped table with the squeaky microphones and the hunched over panelists. Instead, they have introduced an exciting new format, produced and hosted by Robert B. Tucker, that we refer to as “The Intelligent Talk Show.” Result: Good-by snoresville. Hello packed house. With the talk show format:

  • Panelists become “guests” on a “live” show and are more animated, lively and better prepared to get their message across
  • Guests are more willing to tackle the tough issues that create industry buzz, and keep attendees coming back next year
  • The “talk show” often shows up in meeting evaluations as the highlight of the entire convention

In this ground breaking workshop, Robert Tucker guides your team through the step-by-step process of developing innovative ideas. Beginning with strategy, Robert Tucker takes you on an aerial tour of the entire process of innovation with his custom Tucker Innovation Model. Along the way, pivotal steps in the process will be addressed and issues that arise that are typically overlooked by naïve innovators will be studied diligently to avoid such common pitfalls.
