A committee chair will be in contact with you in late January or early February with more information about where to send your conference presentation.

Here is a resource “10 easy ways to make any PowerPoint presentation awesome”, that has some great ideas on building your presentation around you and your message and making a “good presentation awesome”.

“How to Make Awesome PowerPoint Presentations”, has some nice simple ideas focusing on 4 areas when creating a presentation.

1. Simplify.

2. Tell a story.

3. Clarify points within the body.

4. Have a grand finale. Incite action. Solicit emotions.

How to Record a PowerPoint Presentation

If you never recoded a PowerPoint presentation, please watch the video below as Ryan Klingensmith from the PASAP board teaches you how to narrate a PowerPoint presentation and then turn it into a video file for the conference website. It’s pretty simple to do and he will walk you through the steps.

Tips and Tricks for your Presentation Trailer

PASAP is excited to be able to promote your presentation with a 30 second to 1 minute “trailer” for your presentation. Ryan has provided some tips in this video to help you make a great “trailer”. When making your trailer, please leave at least 5 seconds at the beginning and end of the video so PASAP has room to edit if needed.

Tips for Trailer Content

Not sure what to say in your “trailer”? Here is an example made with Zoom from one of this years conference presenter.

How to Record on Zoom and Google Meet 

Are you using Zoom to record your trailer? Here is a quick how-to on recoding on Zoom.

You can also record your trailer on Google Meet if that’s a good platform for you. Watch how to do this here.  

If you have any questions with technical issues, please feel free to reach out to me at ryank@shapethesky.org and I’ll find an answer to your question.
