To Bore No More: Designing & Delivering Presentations That Engage Your Audience

This slide show supports a workshop presented in March 2010 at the Fulfilling the Promise Conference in Oconomowoc, WI. While this was a 75 minute workshop, it can easily be expanded to 2 hours, half day or full day presentations.

PLEASE NOTE: This presentation was originally titled "Bore No More." Five months AFTER this presentation was delivered and uploaded, the phrase "Bore No More" was trademarked by Jonathan Petz of Powell, OH. The title has been changed in order to comply with federal trademark rules.
