For more than 12 years, Marco Montemagno has dedicated his career to informing people about the opportunities offered by the Internet and technology by incorporating unconventional presentation tactics into his presentations. This includes ping-pong tables brought onto the stage, giving out rings to marry the Internet and handing out tennis balls to the audience to throw onto the stage, among others.
In this conversation, Marco discusses his upcoming Presentation SuperSummit, an online event with an impressive line of speakers.
Geetesh: Tell us more about your upcoming virtual Presentation SuperSummit -- what motivated you to do this event, and why should one attend?
Marco: Let's start saying that this is the first official Global SuperSummit event!
Let me give you some context about SuperSummit first. SuperSummit is creating a new market space in the lifelong learning sector...it spotted a gap in the market and has constructed a new space in the learning area that we are calling a MOVE - (Massive Open Virtual Events). Unlike a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course...currently in the press a lot as many studies are being done on the effect of virtual courses on higher education...), SuperSummit doesn't offer courses, qualifications or degree alternatives but instant shots of learning, free and live in an event/conference format.
For people with busy lifestyles, SuperSummit is the perfect way to get updated fast on a topic of interest, be that business or personal.
Instead of attending a 2 day conference for example, users can log on to a SuperSummit event of their choice and update their knowledge and skills in a very practical, intimate way with top experts offering immediately actionable tips from the frontline. This is of course live with the expert and the audience can interact with them, ask questions and get feedback from the community live while it is on. Often people will attend conferences and events to get refreshed on a topic and immerse themselves in all the latest progress key players in the field have been making, keeping yourself up to date. SuperSummit does this but online.
Essentially SuperSummit is a network of education-focussed MOVEs (massive open virtual event).
SuperSummit's international launch will be marked by a free five-day online "Presentation SuperSummit" taking place between May 12 - 16, 2014.
Geetesh: Can you tell us about the speakers lined up for the Presentation SuperSummit?
Marco: This remarkable virtual conference will bring together a league of extraordinary experts under one roof; typifying the events we can expect from the network in the future. Each day, users can engage with 2+ hours of live chat between an expert host and an expert in the field of presentation. The ability to present effectively is a vital skill in a both a professional and a broader social context. Whether you need to communicate ideas to a colleagues on a regular basis, sell products or services, represent your company at conferences or if you would just like to represent yourself in a brighter light when socializing or pursuing group-based hobbies, there is much to learn from this world-class event.
The list of presenters includes:
Peter Arvai, CEO & CoFounder of Prezi; one of the biggest presentation platforms with 50 million users, Amit Ranjan, CoFounder of SlideShare; the no.1 platform for users to upload and share publicly or privately, PowerPoint presentations, Word documents and Adobe PDF Portfolios plus Jeremey Donovan, Group Vice President of Marketing at Gartner Inc. and author of Amazon's no.1 bestseller "How to Deliver a TED Talk"; Oren Klaff author of PitchAnything, Bill Hoogterp, OwnTheRoom CEO.
But the list is really long and all the speakers are simply amazing so please check the website to see the complete killer lineup.
Again: it will be live, free and interactive via chat.
