Tech Talk - How to make a Prezi (You'll never want to go back to PowerPoint)  Our favorite tool of 2012 is Prezi! Take an in-depth look at this incredibly simple and free PowerPoint alternative. Nancy Giard has mastered Prezi and will give a mini training session that will leave you ready to go home and take your presentations to the next level in just a few minutes!
Presentation -Back to School Tips and Tools presented by Diane Darling and Nancy Giard. Hear the highlights, ideas and best practices gathered from presentations made by thought-leaders like Jim Collins, John Kao, Jane Bozarth, Tony Bingham, Elliott Masie and Heidi Grant Halvorson. Find out what trainers have in common with Jazz musicians, hear the latest trends for working effectively with SME's, consider a few ideas for what we call "sanity practices" (like making a "stop doing" list) and learn about free National ASTD Member Resources. You'll leave this presentation with a gigantic list of free online resources and tools to do cool new stuff like:  Mind mapping and brainstorming online (Mindomo, MindMeister)  Creating a multimedia interactive poster (Gickr)  Bumping up effectiveness with productivity applications (Timebridge, Evernote)  Video production and music sharing (EyeJot and Jamendo)  The "Master URL" to the list of the aggregated collection of over 100 resources presented at the ASTD International Conference and Exposition 2012 in Denver, CO  Downloading an ASTD iPad app and accessing 2 incredible ASTD National Member Benefits we didn't even know about!
