ATDps: May 2021 Virtual Member Event
What’s the best presentation, event or meeting you’ve recently attended or seen? What was impactful that you left the event thinking, wow as you walked away? Was it the PowerPoint slides, the font size, the color scheme, the charts? No, it was the story behind those charts, the story behind the data that truly captivated you and made you feel as if you were part of the presentation or ready to take action. Take some time this May 18th at 4 PM PST to hear from subject matter experts, Susan J Grella and Buu Lam, on how to entertain, educate and inspire through impactful storytelling!
