Lecture is Not Dead:  Ten Tips for Delivering Dynamic Lectures in the College Classroom

The lecture as a teaching tool has worked for centuries because, at heart, it is about human interaction, the most powerful, attention-grabbing tool for interaction at anyone’s disposal.  The presence of a live, active, engaged human being who is an expert in his or her field will do more to ignite the passions of a group of students than will any canned multimedia presentation.  This book will show you how to infuse passion and interest into your lectures and keep your students awake and engaged.

Shops that POP! 7 Steps to Extraordinary Retail Success

(with Pamela N. Danziger)

Small is the next BIG story at retail; small, as in local independent retailers. Learn how to tap this emerging retailing trend, fueled by the desire of the highest-potential and highest-spending customers’ passion for a new shopping experience that they can’t find at the mall, in the national chains or in big box stores. This trend will reshape the retail landscape over the next decade.

The Midwest Book Review says Shops that Pop! is “very highly recommended for both community and academic library Business Management instructional reference collections and supplemental studies reading lists.”  This book would make a great adoption for your marketing, retailing, or business classes at colleges and universities.

Jennifer Patterson Lorenzetti is available for consulting and speaking on this topic to small retailers and business and marketing programs at colleges and universities.
