How NOT to Suck at Presenting Your Work

Professional designers and developers like us are paid to create smart, badass work for our clients. All too often, however, our hard work fails to get approved simply because we didn’t present it effectively. In short, sometimes the better work loses out to the better sell. The same meticulous thinking that informs our strategies and our executions needs to affect how we present. If you’re a designer or developer who’s slightly introverted by nature and prone to stage fright, or if you simply want to brush up on your presentation skills, join us for this fun, informative session. You’ll learn more about the importance of giving your work the spotlight it deserves, and come away with an array of storytelling strategies and acting techniques that will help you improve your presentation performance.
