1 - 2 p.m.

  • How to Create Gorgeous Slides
    We've all seen them: those PowerPoint slides that are boring, uninformative, and don't actually add anything to your presentation. Prevent yourself from falling into this all-too-common trap and let Anna McEntire, Director of RGS Communications and presentation guru teach you how to create the most effective PowerPoint, using slides that you submit before the session. Not only will you learn, but you will also be able to make improvements before the end of the day! Make sure you check the website prior to the session for details on how to submit the slides.

March 19
1 - 2 p.m.
Library 101
  • How to Design Stunning Posters
    Like slides, posters can fall on the side of being boring and ineffective. Anna McEntire, Director of RGS Communications, has a trick or two or four up her sleeve, and will use this session to show you how to create the best poster possible, using posters you submit as examples. Before the session, check the website for details on how to submit your posters.
