Join the Outstanding Presentations Workshop 2012

My favorite presentation guru and PowerPoint MVP, Ellen Finkelstein, has just announced the schedule for the 3rd Annual Outstanding Presentations Workshop and I’m excited! It will run weekly on Tuesdays, from September 18 through November 13 (with no session on Tuesday, October 9). All sessions start at 11am Pacific Time, 2pm Eastern Time.

Those who would like to join (and you should!), when you sign up, you will get a link to the full schedule, which has a link for the time anywhere in the world.

The cost is very minimal, only $7, which is a super great value considering how expensive other similar workshops can be. And what’s great about it is that some of the world’s top presentation experts will be the ones to conduct the sessions. Here are their schedules:

9/18 – Rick Altman, Presentation Summit host, “Real-World Makeovers”
9/25 – Sandy Johnson, PowerPoint MVP, “Creating Your Own Graphics”
10/2 – Glenna Shaw, PowerPoint MVP,  “Designing Games for Learning”
10/16 – Ric  Bretschneider, PowerPoint MVP, “10 Evil Little Secrets about PowerPoint”
10/23 – Geetesh Bajaj, PowerPoint MVP, “Handmade Slides”
10/30 – Echo Swinford, PowerPoint MVP, “Create Charts That Don’t Make Their Eyes Bleed”
11/6 – Julie Terberg, PowerPoint MVP, “A Theme Runs Through It”
11/13 – Ellen Finkelstein, PowerPoint MVP, “Make a Lasting Impression by Visualizing Business Concepts”

I also interviewed Ellen about this by asking her a few questions that came to mind. Let me share with you what she said:

  1. What is the main purpose of this workshop? The main purpose of this workshop is to give you the knowledge you need to create outstanding presentations. The expert presenters will cover many of the topics that presenters deal with each time they present, such as working with themes, creating charts, visualizing concepts, designing graphics, and more.
  2. What do you hope to accomplish at the end of the 8 sessions? I hope to give presenters the tools they need to present effectively and avoid Death by PowerPoint. I also want them to hear the advice and tips of some of the top presentation experts in the world.
  3. Why is the workshop very affordable? We’ve been able to attract a large number of attendees in the last 2 years. Last year over 3,000 people registered from 98 countries. A small amount from each person will be enough to sustain this effort.
  4. Can people join from any part of the world? Yes! As I mentioned, we had people from 98 countries last year. All of the sessions are recorded and will be available for 2 months after the live session. Each week, after the webinar, everyone will get an email with a link to the recording. This allows people in all time zones to get the great value of these sessions.
  5. How can we pay? What if I have no PayPal? You don’t need a PayPal account. You can pay with a credit card. After going to, click the Join Us button and then look for the link that says, “Don’t have a PayPal account?” We look forward to having you join us!
