Ellen Finkelstein is a Microsoft PowerPoint MVP and author of several PowerPoint, Flash, and AutoCAD books — she just announced the 2013 incarnation of Outstanding Presentations Workshop, her webinar series that allows everyone to learn from renowned presentation experts.
In this conversation, Ellen talks more about this new webinar series.
Geetesh: Your Outstanding Presentations series of webinars has been very successful – can you tell us more about the upcoming series this year and your line of speakers?
Ellen: This year we have a group of very experienced communication experts:
Geetesh: You always get another set of great speakers each year — tell us about what happens behind the scenes — do you have any experiences to share?
Ellen: At the end of each year’s sessions, I ask participants which speakers they would like to hear the following year. I also maintain many connections with people in the presentation industry. And I ask for introductions. For example, after you interviewed Tom Mucciolo, I asked you to introduce him to me. Then I just ask people to speak. The speakers have been amazingly generous with their time and expertise.
All of the speakers are well-known in their field (some are downright famous!) and they’ve chosen very interesting topics as well. I think the workshop will be very exciting!
Thanks Ellen, this is neat! I've signed for this year's workshop (like I did for each previous year) and am really looking forward to the great line-up of speakers you've assembled.
