PDA Event: The Power of Presentation: Enhancing Your Slides for Engagement

Tuesday, June 21, 2022 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Throughout your life you will, almost certainly, give presentations. We’ve all sat through presentations that were boring, confusing, and drab. How do you communicate your message most succinctly? What visuals will captivate and inform your audience the best? Is it only about your slide design or are there other techniques that leave a lasting impression? In this session we distill the magic that just might take your next presentation from bland to grand.
