About The Event

Being an effective presenter is not easy — whether the venue is online or in-person. It is not a skill that can be easily learned and applied without practicing and receiving helpful feedback. This two-day workshop will do just that.

On the first day, we will cover helpful techniques to giving compelling presentations. We will review how to choose a topic and title that draws people to register, incorporate storytelling and offer presentation tips to keep your audience engaged.

Then, you will have the opportunity to put those lessons into action.

On the second day, you will present a short presentation to a small group of your peers who will provide immediate and helpful feedback. You will also observe how other attorneys present and reflect on their strengths to integrate those into your own presentation style.

There is no better time to learn how to be a compelling and effective presenter.

Webcast Requirements

This is not your traditional workshop with a lot of lecture. It requires a great deal of participation from attendees. As you will be attending via live webcast, we ask that you prepare accordingly by following the guidelines below:
  1. Be prepared to share your webcam. This will allow attendees and presenters to see you and more easily interact with you during the event. If you do not have a webcam, below are a few suggestions with varying price points.
  2. Be sure your Internet speed will support streaming the workshop.
    • You must have an Internet connection with a minimum speed of 10 Mbps. We strongly recommend a wired connection. You may learn your speed at www.speedtest.net.
    • A quiet place without interruptions
    • A working microphone
    • Google Chrome as your recommended browser
    • Close other applications and bandwidth heavy items such as cloud applications that require continuous syncing
    • Headphones are recommended for listening.

  3. If at all possible, make plans to participate from a location outside of your office. This event requires participation from attendees and if you are interrupted by work demands you (and other attendees) will not get the full benefit from the event and it will be disruptive for everyone.

  4. Come ready to participate, learn, and have fun!
