Presenter and Trainer

Theory and practice blend together to form the basis of my presentations given at professional conferences; my presentation topics have included instructional media development for higher education and Project Management specifically targeted to creative projects.

The training sessions that I have lead covered Microsoft PowerPoint and making your slides effective.  Sharing the lessons learned with peers is an important part of contributing to the larger field of creativity and project management.

If your creative team or organization needs a workshop or custom presentation to hone their project leadership skills, contact me.  Workshops and presentations can be customized to target specific topic areas and be adapted to fit the audience size.
