Giving Good Presentations

sample slide for good presentations

I think Peter Bromberg can read my mind, all the way from New Jersey. I’ve spent a lot of time the past few days updating and expanding my presentation (see above) for the impending trip to Australia. Peter blogs a wonderful clearinghouse of links for making effective presentations.

And like Aaron, I broke up with Keynote’s standard gradient after a long love affair.

TTW Goes Down Under

TTWAustralia

I can’t believe in just two weeks we leave for my speaking gigs in Australia. I’ve been prepping, reading up on places to visit, and getting a grip on the itinerary. If you are attending any of the talks, please say hello! Two more talks have been added: an afternoon with the Macquarie University library staff on February 26th and “Best Practices for Social Software in Libraries” in Melbourne, Thursday February 28th, 2008 in the afternoon. Thanks to CAVAL for inviting me and putting together such an incredible trip.

I’m looking forward to meeting folks I know online, learning as much as I can about Australian libraries and librarians, and having a few days in each city to experience the culture and see the sights. I’ll be using Flickr, my new Flip Video and TTW to share the trip.
