Roxanne Speaks at IABC Hawaii (Links & Notes)

I am so grateful to have been asked to present at the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) monthly meeting in Honolulu yesterday. What an engaging group of professionals!

I had such a great time! Having the “live case study” featuring Mighty J and Dr. Trey was the icing on the cake. I’ll be creating a few video podcasts of the actual talk in the next few days.

As a reminder, here were the goals I presented for the talk:
# Realize that just because your kids can do something and there is a lot of free software, that it isn’t likely that easy to do it for your business. Here are some places to start.
# Shed some light on the current phenomenon of online video, social networking sites, and user-generated content. Discuss some real examples of how innovators are using the tools and tapping into the “attention economy.”

Slide Show Presentation
*Technology + Communication: The Return on Influence*

Here is a Quicktime movie of the slide show I delivered. (I’ll be posting a video podcast of the actual presentation in a few days.) It will require the most current version of the free Quicktime Software. Or, you can download the free iTunes software and keep a copy to watch whenever you like. To download a copy, right-click on the link and “Save” to your local computer. Click your back button when you are done and you will come back to this page.

“Your presentation on Wednesday at the IABC Luncheon was great. I learned about and absorbed meaningful information that I can use now. That is the way presentations should impact an audience and your speech did just that. Thank you.”
