Frontier Academy RVA: Creating Compelling Presentations
Tuesday, July 10, 2012 from 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM (EDT)
Let’s face it, the ability to wow your audience with a powerful presentation has the potential to gain you a TON of traction inside your organization and with clients...
This course coaches participants in one of the two most important aspects of powerful presentations: creating high-impact slides and materials. For part two of the course, sign up for Projectng Personal Presence.
Our highly-coached program assists each participant to create presentations that grab and hold an audience's attention guiding them to the decision you want.
We'll start with understanding the power of a succinct message with a clear ask. Working through a discipline of tight presentation storyboarding.
Then participants begin the long and painful road to PowerPoint detoxification, whereby we break the bad habits of over complicated, busy, pointless slides, and replace them with clean, interesting, effective visuals. We'll cover fonts, photography, logos, transitions and those dreaded bullet points. We'll include tips on technology, selecting venues, and using music backdrops.
We encourage participants to come to the session with a presentation they're currently working on, or recently delivered, to work on as an example.
Ideal participants: Anyone who needs to get decisions made in a presentation environment.

Location: The Frontier Studio.

Food: Don't worry, we'll provide lunch. We'll always offer a vegetarian option for every meal. Any other dietary restrictions we're happy to accommodate, just let us know in advance.

More than just education; it’s innovation.
The Frontier Academy isn’t your ordinary professional development experience. We strive to provide unique experiences that challenge participants to think and grow in new ways. Through a balance of time-tested best practices and leading edge ideas, our skilled facilitators deliver highly effective and engaging sessions unlike anyone else.
It’s about more than just the content.
We believe that the learning that is not built into the curriculum is as important as the learning that is. By attracting participants with a diverse range of experiences and perspectives, the Frontier Academy is a powerful networking opportunity in addition to being an awesome learning environment.
Logistics with meaning.
RVA is a community that we are proud to be a part of, so we work with our neighbors and partners to give Frontier Academy participants a complete experience. Sleep, eat, drink, travel, learn and grow. Whether you live in Richmond or are coming from out of town, let us know if we can provide you with an experience that beyond five o’clock.
Personal and professional.
At the Frontier Academy we take professional development personally. We want you to have a meaningful experience that benefits you and your organization. So, if we can help in any way, let us know. Don’t hesitate to contact us; we’re here for you.
