On behalf of the officers, we are hoping all of you are back to something akin to "usual"; notice we did not say "normal"...whatever that is.  2021 has already been such a challenging year and we wanted to say "Thank You" to everyone for being active in the chapter. Mark your calendars for a FREE "Member Appreciation" meeting...and earn 1 CPE credit.

Presenter: Dr. Billy Earnest

Description: Whether preparing a PowerPoint presentation for in-house training or putting together slides for courtroom testimony, there are guidelines you should follow to communicate more effectively (and professionally).  Learn to avoid all-too-common design mistakes that lead to "Death by PowerPoint." Too much text? That's a problem. Too small to read? That's a bigger problem. [Pun intended.]  And while those errors seem obvious, have you considered the font style you are using or your color choices? What about visually balancing the elements? There are even differences in how to prepare slides for use in the virtual environment versus in-person.  All this will be covered, and much more. Come join us to see for yourself. Time to put some power into your presentations.  

About the Presenter: Dr. Billy Earnest is an expert on communicating effectively through slides, having studied and written about this subject for many years. He has also published a book/guide on the topic--Save Our Slides: Presentation Design That Works--now in its fourth edition. He has worked with corporate clients and with attorneys to provide litigation support to assure top-notch and effective presentations. He has taught Business Communication at UT-Austin's McCombs School and has been on the faculty of St. Edward's University since 2005.
