I want to share this opportunity to attend a Visual Language Workshop in Oakland, October 7-9. If you are interested in improving your presentation skills, this workshop is for you!

The information flyer is attached. 

Enter promotional code vip063 for a $50 discount.

Deadline to register is September 15.

This is a very hands-on and practical course that helps you convert standard, boring, linear, bullet-point-filled PowerPoint slide shows into engaging, flexible, and memorable visual content. You’ll learn to show what you say in the moment, making interactions with audiences even better. This action-packed three-day course immerses you in critical PowerPoint and communication skills that dramatically improve that impact and memorability of slides. You’ll become a master of working with pictures, shapes, hyperlinks, navigation strategies, and more. The ultimate goal is building a powerful communication tool called a presentation platform. A presentation platform is a collection of all your speaking topics divided into small pieces and linked together via dashboards – kinds of like a large website, but built completely in PowerPoint.
