Pop Quiz Homework for InSync Webinar Participants, July 24th 2018

This is the “Pop Quiz Homework” for my webinar, “Brain-Based Presenting: Getting the Brain to Pay Attention,” sponsored by “InSync Training,” a globally-recognized, virtual-learning organization.


Pop Quiz Homework is one of my webinar’s “Follow-Up” activities. Brain scientists call them “spaced practice” – activities that  help move learning into long-term memory.

Below is the most important of the follow-up activities for “Brain-Based Presenting,” and the one that comes with a special free “thank you” from me to you:

Pop Quiz Homework  

“How were the elements of NOVELTY, CONTRAST, MEANING, and EMOTION used during the “Brain-Based Presenting” webinar to get YOUR brain to pay attention?” 

Answer the question above in a paragraph or two and send your answer to me via email at [email protected] or type your answer into the “comments” section below (it will appear in my website’s “inbox” so that I can respond).

 As my way of saying “thank you” for taking the time to do the Pop Quiz Homework, I will send you my complimentary ebook “Presenting With Pizzazz!”

And, if you haven’t already done so, be sure download the free note-taking handout from the webinar by clicking HERE. This handout contains many excellent, brain-based resources for you to explore. Finally, click HERE for the free, downloadable infographic that accompanies the webinar.


The concepts covered in the webinar were taken from my book titled Using Brain Science to Make Training Stick, available on Amazon. The book covers six learning principles that trump traditional training and contains the instructions for 30 activities (plus e-learning variations) that are tied to the six learning principles. 

For live, public workshops that cover the concepts/activities in both my brain science book and Training from the BACK of the Room, click on my website’s What’s New? or Training Events pages.

While there, be sure to explore all the free give-aways that you can download, print, and share. And of course, you can email me at [email protected] with your questions and comments. Pay it forward: teach someone something! 🙂    




  • I watched the recording of the webinar. I really liked how you added pauses for attendees to move during the webinar. Not only did it allow us time to reflect but also the pauses and the movement combined provided novelty and impetus to kickstart our attention. Throughout the webinar you incorporated many variations of novelty, contract, meaning and emotion. You used pop quizzes; thumbs and thumbs down; stand, stretch and speak; quick write, and my favorite were the eye-catching images. Your use of high-res, engaging photos really helped concepts to resonate and stay with me after the webinar. I plan to incorporate some stand and stretch moments and look at some of the image suggestions to jazz up my presentations. I’d really like to use more movement within my presentations. Thank you for sharing these tips and I fully enjoyed the webinar.
