Description

This course was designed to primarily provide tips beyond slide design. Speakers often spend hours preparing their slides and then encounter problems when they present because of basic but important computer settings, projector settings or improper connections to projectors.

This short course will take less than an hour and will cover these important settings as well as a few slide building tips related to a smooth presentation rather than graphic design tips. The course has been designed for anyone who has to give a presentation and wants to make sure to cover some of the basics to ensure no technical slip-ups occur.

Topics include:

  • Know your connections
  • Know these computer settings
  • Know these projector settings
  • Know these design tips
Who is the target audience?
  • Speakers who have had trouble with presentation settings
  • Speakers who are nervous about making sure they can connect to projectors
  • Speakers who want basic prevention and troubleshooting tips

Speaker, Expert Presentation Consultant

For almost 19 years I have worked with attorneys in high-stakes, high-dollar litigation. I consult teams on the best way to visually present evidence to judges and juries. I also make sure everything "works" in the courtroom when it comes time to present. In these high-stress scenarios its critical that everything works.
