Want to learn how to make your presentations better? I know I do!
PresentationCamp is yet another BarCamp-style event that is focussed on helping each other learn more about the design and delivery of presentations. PresentationCamps have taken place in SF, Seattle, LA, and elsewhere, and have followed the traditional BarCamp format.
I want to launch PresentationCamp in Toronto, but we’re going to do things a little differently to begin. Rather than start off with a full-day event, let’s have a two-hour-long, weekday evening event, with eight (8) ten-minute presentations. If there’s enough interest — and I don’t doubt that there will be — we can expand this to a full-day affair.
You in? Great! Your first step is to follow @prescampTO.
Now, leave a comment below or contact me directly if you think you can help me with the following:
- Presenters. Do you give presentations for a living, and have tips to suggest around a given topic, such as a presentation style?
- A Venue. My guess is we’ll need a large auditorium, and we’ll aim for around 200 people to attend. I’m reaching out to Ryerson (host to ProductCamp and the next two DemoCamps), but if you have contacts at, say, Rogers or MaRS, please let me know.
- Sponsors? I’m hoping we can do this first event without the need for paying sponsors, but if the venue needs cash to open up for us, then we’ll need to offset the cost. Are you interested in sponsoring PresentationCamp?
