156: MMM - Top 5 Takeaways from the Presentation Summit 2017
Ah, the Presentation Summit! I've had the most exciting September... last week I shared about the top 10 essential speaking lessons from the STORY Gathering in Nashville - and I went straight from Nashville to Tampa. I was met with gorgeous beaches and weather. Not bad for a work trip. :) But here's the deal: I wasn't sure I was going to like this conference. Last spring, I got an email from this man named Rick Altman, the creator of this conference and CEO of Better Presenting. He said, "Hey, you should come to this conference I put on!" Now, I had HEARD about this conference as a great conference for Power Point users and designers, but because I'm not a Power Point designer, I thought it wasn't for me.

But I really wasn't sure there'd be much for me at this conference. But Rick said - HECK NO - it's for any presentation professional. Well, ok! So, off I went! I had no idea what to expect, except that a few people I had connected with online couldn't stop talking about how excited they were for it! Well, that's a good sign... And can I say? I loved it. It was FULL of insight, powerful tools that I need to be aware of for my clients and that might be useful for YOU, and AMAZING PEOPLE. So, win-win-win. And, it was the most fun I've ever had at a conference, ever. So - here are 5 of the most important takeaways from The Presentation Summit:
