What takes a session to top 100 at a big conference? Technical skills are great, but to take your session to the top three requires more. I've been an IT instructor for more than 15 years. I've won three major TechEd awards with my sessions. I've been part of more than 10 other conferences and taught public speaking and presentation skills for hundreds of professional speakers around the world. Let me share with you my stories and tips on how to create great presentations for technical audiences.

  • How to create great presentations
  • How to take a session to the top three at a conference
  • How to evolve a presentation into an entertaining show
