SpeakerToolbox: Extreme Slide Makeover

Extreme slide makeover results in a stronger campaign for the NJ Sharing Network

NJ Sharing Network speakers were held captive by the words on their slides. After participating in the Professionally Speaking workshop they revamped their presentations replacing content heavy slides with captivating images.

Reflecting on the change, Jackie Lue Raia, Manager, Foundation Development commented,

The impact was immediate and remarkable. We’re presenting the same information, but in a way that’s much more inspiring. Our audience is hearing our message and participating in a conversation rather than being passive listeners, they want to help.”

Thank you to Morgan Johnson, Hospital Services Manager at NJ Sharing Network for providing this “makeover” currently being used in her presentations.
