Do Not Just Present. WOW Your Audiences.

Tracy Butz is an elite professional speaker who travels the country inspiring people to succeed in the workplace. Even though no two presentations are the same, she wanted to deliver an even more differentiating experience.

CHALLENGE
Did you know the average time a person can sit and listen to someone speak without any type of interaction is just 8 minutes? With more than 20 years of experience, Tracy Butz knows the importance of keeping audiences engaged. She owns and operates Think Impact Solutions, and travels the country delivering words of inspiration and workshop events to companies and team members. You will not find Tracy delivering the same presentation twice. She incorporates different learning styles to personalize activities and examples for a WOW experience. Even though she already integrated various forms of engagement into her programs, Tracy searched for a means of delivering an even more differentiating experience.

SOLUTION
It was while taking part in a breakout session at a national convention when she realized the excitement and chatter that arose from participantsusing audience response systems. Within weeks, she had invested in Turning Technologies’ TurningPoint polling software and response keypads. “This decision was by far the best investment I’ve made in my business,” said Tracy. “I use this interactive tool with almost every program I deliver.” Tracy uses the educational technology to pose questions to the audience in a way that solicits their opinion, confidentially uncovers common issues or frustrations, allows participants to safely share behavioral-based decisions and gauges if a concept is learned.

RESULTS
Response technology created a more memorable learning experience for Tracy’s audiences. “Using TurningPoint allowed me to cultivate an even more comfortable sharing and learning environment for my customers,” mentioned Tracy. “I am confident that it is an integral ingredient in the growth of my business and also was a contributing factor in attaining the most prestigious designation in my industry.” This past summer, she earned the coveted Certified Speaking Professional™ (CSP) certification, which is the highest honor in the speaking profession, held by only 12% of speakers worldwide.
