September 10th: Communications & Powerpoint
Please join us Monday, September 10, in the Reilley Room, from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. as Adjunct Professor of Communications, Leslie Streissguth offers information on how to properly communicate your message to an audience using PowerPoint.
“Make slides that reinforce your words, not repeat them”. Seth Godin, PowerPoint guru
“When I was 14 -years-old, I made this PowerPoint presentation, and I invited my parents into my room and gave them popcorn. It was called ‘Project Hollywood 2004’ and it worked. I moved to L.A. in January of 2004.” Emma Stone
That being said, what does he (Seth Godin) really mean? And, if we create good PowerPoints, will we become famous and glamorous Hollywood idols like Emma Stone? Let’s find out together in a mini course that looks at PowerPoint and all that it can do for our ideas, and MAYBE our future plans!
