Since launching the Rowan Report, I’ve avoided overt sales pitches about my company. But you’re getting one today.
On December 14, I will be conducting a 3-hour workshop on presentations at LifeWorks (3700 South First Street in Austin). The workshop will be open to anyone who wants to learn about improving presentation skills and materials.
I conducted a short one-hour version of this workshop (without the hands-on and tutorial sections) at the Crossroads Conference in October (hosted by Greenlights for Non Profit Success), and the response has been remarkable. For those of you in Austin who did not attend the October conference, the December workshop will provide a longer, more interactive agenda and more opportunity for Q&A, group interaction and “learning by doing.”
1. A plenary session, including research findings and recommendations from the book “Why Bad Presentations Happen to Good Causes,” as well as before-and-after case studies of presentation best practices. A copy of the book will be provided.
2. A group review of “real world” presentations (yes, that could include yours if you want it to)
3. A hands-on tutorial of common presentation software, including PowerPoint and Keynote.
The cost of the workshop will be $159 per person.
Here are the details. If you have any questions, email email@example.com.
What: “Why Bad Presentations Happen to Good Causes” plenary and workshop
When: Friday, December 14, 9 am to noon

Cost for the workshop is $159 per person. The fee covers the work session and a copy of the book “Why Bad Presentations Happen to Good Causes.” Group rates are available for organizations sending more than two employees.
Attendance will be limited by space constraints. If you’d like to reserve a seat, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please state your name, organization, the number of people who will attend and your employer’s non-profit status. Employees of non-profit organizations will be given priority if the session fills up.
Payment will be accepted at the workshop. Please make checks payable to Rowan Communication, Inc. Receipts will be provided.
Attendees are encouraged to bring laptop computers for the hands-on session.
We will review presentations submitted by the audience. If you would like to volunteer to share a draft presentation, please note that in your reservation email (don’t worry, everyone will be very nice when we watch it).
More details will be distributed to attendees as December 14 approaches.
