I’m SEA>ORD bound today and had a wonderful time at #NAMPC 2018. The presentation was a hit (more on that later) and before I forget, I wanted to make the slide deck available.
Based on feedback from earlier versions of this presentation, and in order to better suit the content to NAMPC attendees, my co-presenter, Ceci Dadisman, and I made the following modifications:
- New content focusing on ticketing and box office providers (a must-have for arts orgs).
- New content that includes an overview of necessary RFP sections.
- New information architecture content.
- Expanded speaker notes*.
- An expanded microsite that includes a comprehensive list of providers to consider when creating an RFP.
As promised, the slide deck is available at Google Slides and open to all:
*I’ve always felt speaker notes are an integral component to a good presentation. My colleague, Joe Patti, summed it up nicely when he wrote “one of the most frustrating parts of viewing a slide deck outside the context of the presentation is trying to figure out what the bullet points really mean.”
I couldn’t agree more.
Granted, I know some presenters don’t like providing the details of a presentation because it can be interpreted as giving away trade secrets. But in the end, if you’re worried that someone else will get your gig becasue they lifted your copy, that’s a good sign you may not be bringing as much value to the table as you should.
