Presentation Camp to Launch This Saturday

February 22, 2009

The first of a series of Presentation Camps kicks off this Saturday in Palo Alto, Calif. It’s an ad-hoc gathering of people passionate about presentations, created and hosted by Slideshare.net. Presentation Camp is a participatory conference, where those who plan to attend are free to submit their own ideas for a workshop to the organizers, then show up and share their best practices with their fellow attendees. In the BarCamp fashion, all who attend, are invited to host a session.

Proposed sessions so far include:

  • Storytelling to the Power of X & Y, by Scott Schwertly, owner of Ethos 3 Communications
  • The Lessig Method of Presentation
  • Presenting with a Back Channel
  • PowerPoint Slide Designs
  • Time: Camp will run from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 pm, Saturday, Feb. 28. The agenda will be decided between 9:30 – 10 a.m. that day.
    Location: Stanford University, Cordura Hall 100
    Fee: Tickets are $10. You can register through TicketLeap.

    Future Camps: Presentation Camp San Francisco is slated for March 21. Others are being planned for Seattle, New York, Washington DC, London and Kansas City.
