The Next Three Months (Spring 2010)

, , | Posted April 3rd, 2010 by Chris Gurney

Believe it or not, we’ve just completed the first three months of the year. Given this startling turn of events, I thought it would be a good time to reflect back on my New Year’s resolutions, and make sure that they’re still resolutions worth keeping for the next three months.

First, let’s take a look back at January, February, and March of Twenty Ten.

Presenting PresentationCamp Toronto!

, | Posted December 30th, 2009 by Chris Gurney

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?

Drop me a line, or simply follow @prescampTO for updates. Let’s do this thing!
