Presentation experts need no introduction to Garr. As the author of the excellent Presentation Zen and the recent follow-up Presentation Zen: Design, Garr has a worldwide following and universal respect.
Garr will headline this event with a keynote entitled: “Presentation Zen Design: the art of presenting naked”. If you are in Paris – or could be – on June 25th, you absolutely have to be there.
Next on the impressive list of speakers is Laurence Onfroy, founder and CEO of TemptingPlaces, who was recently voted New Entrepreneur Of The Year 2010 by readers of “Le nouvel entrepreneur” magazine. Laurence’s talk, “Pitching for Success”, will cover the important lessons she learned about pitching your business to customers, suppliers and investors.
Last but not least, presentation coach and co-founder of Ideas on Stage Pierre Morsa will deliver a fascinating talk entitled: “Death by Twitter: how social media can kill your talk – and how to avoid it”. This is a must-see for any entrepreneur and business leader, and promises to be very entertaining as well as instructive.
(In case you’re wondering, I’ll be there too, introducing all these great speakers.)
The theme is all about pitching or selling your business, your ideas and your value proposition, and while we expect it to appeal especially to entrepreneurs, there’s plenty to entertain and inform anyone who uses presentations to sell or persuade. If you’ve never seen Garr speak before, this is your chance – don’t miss it.
Important note: the whole event will be run in English.
The event will conclude with a cocktail reception – one of many things the French do best – which will be a great opportunity to network, and perhaps get signed copies of Garr’s books.
Tickets are now on sale here and places are very limited – we expect them to sell out very quickly, so mark your diaries and get your tickets before they run out.
