Eventbrite - Lightning Round Presentations & Networking

About this Event:

This event will be run by you!  It’s entirely free form and can be any format, any number of slides (or none!). Use Adobe products or other technology (or no technology) – whatever you want – to get your idea across.  If you want to use it, we will have a projector and screen, but you’ll need to provide your own computer & possibly connectors.

Free form lightning presentations are limited to 5 minutes and the object is to allow everyone a chance to present on something they’re like to share with the group.  Some ideas include tips and tricks in Adobe products, best practices, demo a project you’re working on, or ask questions of the group to get some help, a website you like, etc.  Really, anything goes – if you think the group is interested – present it!

Lightning talks are a great way to start speaking, even for the shy among us. The point is to make a point, and explain it as quickly as possible. If there’s something you want to share in 1 minute – great!
We’ll have some networking time at the end of the event assuming presentations don’t take up the entire event.  This will be a really fun event and you’re sure to learn something new from it.

Topic level:  All levels

Who should attend:  Everyone!  You don’t *need* to present to attend but the more people who contribute, the better the event will be.

About the Presenter:  It’s you!

Everyone in attendance will receive one ticket for our raffle drawing at the end of the event. You could win:
