The Brainshark Customer Community Team ended the 7-city Presentation Revolution and Executive Roundtable Tour in Minneapolis on October 20th. The tour also included stops in Toronto, New York City, San Francisco, Boston, Atlanta, and Chicago. Each city’s audience was a little different. In Chicago, there were quite a few people from retail and NYC/Toronto had a high percentage of participants from finance.
In most cities the day began with an Executive Roundtable featuring Brainshark CEO, Joe Gustafson, who led a conversation on mobile and video. He both pre-announced and announced the availability of Brainshark’s new iPad App called SlideShark. Immediately following the Roundtable, was the Presentation Revolution keynote, a one-hour presentation by Carmen Taran of Rexi Media. Carmen discussed presentation concepts ranging from simplicity and harmony to texture, authenticity, and surprise. We ended the day with a two-hour class that focused on how to implement Carmen’s ideas in the attendees' next presentations. The reviews from the attendees were off the charts.
Check out this resource page for the tour, which includes more from Carmen, animations templates you can use today, and registration for the Presentation Revolution webinars on Scripting (Oct. 26), Visuals (Nov. 2), Narration (Nov. 9), and Brainshark features (Nov. 16).
