For the last couple of years, I've headed west to various cities to attend Rick Altman's excellent Presentation Summit. It's the only conference in the world dedicated solely to presentation, and it attracts the top players in the industry as attendees and speakers (Nancy Duarte, Garr Reynolds, etc.)
And this year I'm honored to be a speaker myself. I'll be giving a seminar entitled...
"In The Trenches: Real-World Solutions to Corporate Presentation Challenges"
While I don't come from a corporate background, that's the space I've been playing in for years. And the business world throws up endless challenges to good design and effective communication—and not just with regard to presentation.
In this session, I'll share tips and tricks that I've developed over the years to address these corporate challenges while still producing effective presentations. I'll discuss strategies for encouraging clients to write less on screen, for painlessly creating separate handouts, for creating custom templates in minutes by "reskinning," and for keeping content highly editable. I'll also discuss some unique PowerPoint formats for when the client says, "But I don't want it to look like PowerPoint..."
Take a look at the entire conference lineup which includes a video preview I recorded. Or you can watch it here...
It's a great conference. If you think you might benefit from attending, drop me a line. I'd be happy to tell you more about it. Or just sign up here!
