📅 Tuesday, September 28th, 2021, 2-4pm ET

💻 Delivered Virtually

Presentations suck. You know that. Mindless recitation of interminable bullet points illustrated by complex data tables and impenetrable diagrams. And that’s just YOUR presentation! You know what sucks and yet, for too many reasons, when it comes your turn to deliver a presentation you do just what you hate. Because it’s what they want, because it’s easy, because everyone else does it, because that’s what the boss wants, because it’s academic, because you don’t know any better.

Attend this workshop and change your presentations, forever.
