I recently attended the 2011 Presentation Summit in Austin, Texas. Rick Altman,
the host of this conference for presentation professionals, does an excellent job recruiting industry experts who provide guidance on designing, building, and delivering
According to Rick, "The most important objective of the Summit
is to give presentation professionals a community to connect in. Yes, we cover presentation skills and message
crafting -- but community is the key."
The Summit is in its ninth
year and consists of daily seminars and workshops led by industry VIPs, such
as Garr Reynolds, Nigel
Taran, Jim Endicott, top Microsoft
PowerPoint MVPs, and other key presentation gurus.
There are so many wonderful ideas
that I reaped this year, it's difficult to share everything.
But here are a few key takeaways to keep in mind that as you build great presentations:
Altman's crew is currently planning next year's Summit (to be held in Scottsdale, Arizona), and
you can check back to the web site in the upcoming weeks to find out more
Here are a couple of quotes about the Summit -- one from a new attendee, and one from a veteran (and Microsoft MVP):
"Dr. Carmen Taran's
keynote was my favorite highlight from the Summit. She covered 'how' to become
an effective presenter by understanding 'how' people retain information. The
core point of her presentation is that 'attention is mandatory to memory'."

I hope I can attend the summit next year, it sounds great! I've posted a number of video posts on how to make more impactful presentations using PowerPoint 2010. The ones with SmartArt graphics has really resonated. Check it out here: www.businessproductivity.com/.../create-eye-catching-presentations-using-graphics
