Habitat Atlanta  Attendee participation is at the core of my small group workshops. Each participant is requested to bring a past, current or future project that they will present, receive expert and peer feedback and then fine-tune for maximum effectiveness and clarity. In the one- and two-day workshop ample time is allocated for editing, revisions and additional presentations. Attendees learn through feedback, as well as, by giving feedback to others in the group.

The large group 60-90 minute presentation is a fast-paced, high-content overview of how to build and deliver effective PowerPoint. It can be used as a company-wide introduction to presentations which can be followed up with small group workshops for critical team members.

Content areas that are most often requested by our workshop participants:

  • Speaking-at-NSAThe 3 core Best Practices and how to apply them
  • Tips, tricks and techniques learned from 30+ years of building and delivering presentations
