Geetesh: After so many years of the Outstanding Presentations Workshop, what if I asked you to rewind back to the past ones, and share your thoughts about all these series through the years? Can you share some thoughts?
Ellen: The main thing has been the quality. I didn’t know how the presentations would turn out, but year after year, presenter after presenter, I’ve seen such high-quality presentations, with valuable insights and clear, powerful slides. I’ve received great appreciate from audience members, too.
Geetesh: Why do you think people sign up for the Outstanding Presentations Workshops? And what are their takeaways?
Ellen:Outstanding Presentations Webinar 2016 presentations offer a lot of variety, so they take away a wide range of points, from technical to strategic. My takeaway is that presenters want to learn. They care about their audience and want to do the best job of presenting that they can. Of course, I get those people since they take the time to register and attend. Their questions show a great deal of intelligence and discernment. Over the years, I’ve met many wonderful people by doing this series; it’s been very uplifting!
