The first of the 5-city Presentation Revolution tour kicked off in San Francisco on February 27. The day began with an Executive Roundtable led by Brainshark CEO, Joe Gustafson. Joe talked about the trends we see in mobile and video and Brainshark’s strategic plans to address them.
Afterwards, customers and prospects filled the room across the hall for the keynote from Carmen Taran of RexiMedia. Carmen kept the attention of the audience with amazing visuals that will make your live, on-line, and on-demand presentations memorable. She touched upon 5 themes: Harmony, Simplicity, Authenticity, Texture, and Surprise. Participants even took a few minutes to write a Haiku to PowerPoint. Here is one of them.
An audience comes
To a presentation to see you
Not your slides
Carmen’s presentation was followed-up with a 2-hour, highly interactive workshop in which participants took Carmen’s themes and worked in teams to create visuals. It was great to see the creative slides the teams came up with. This was the first time Brainshark delivered a workshop like this. We learned a lot and are developing a live webinar on November 2 that will replicate the workshop.
Phase two of the Presentation Revolution is a 4-part live webinar series.
