Presentation Summit Cruise: Conversation with Rick Altman

Created: Wednesday, August 3, 2016, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 4:00 am



Rick AltmanRick Altman is a California-based presentation consultant who has been helping organizations communicate better in public since before Microsoft developed PowerPoint. He has been hosting end-user conferences since 1989 and is the host of the annual Presentation Summit, now in its 14th season.

In this conversation, Rick discusses the new Presentation Summit Cruise, 2017 conference, to be held in April 2017 in the Caribbean.

Geetesh: Are you taking the Presentation Summit to sea? Tell us more about how this idea evolved?

Rick: Becky and I have been long-time cruisers; we’ve probably been on over a dozen. Every time we go, I say to her, “wouldn’t it be cool to mix the conference with a cruise?”

We have made so many great friends in the 14 seasons of hosting it—not only the people who attend but also the people we meet in the greater presentation community—and I think it would be wonderful to spend time with them in a more relaxed environment.

Geetesh: Between all the travel to different locations, will you get time to do seminars? Tell us more.

Rick: It won’t be like the conference, where we go a mile a minute from 8 – 5. We’ll do one hour of instruction/content each day and spend most of the time doing what cruisers do: relax, eat, and explore. This should be seen as a vacation opportunity first and a learning opportunity second.
