All day Presentation Magic workshop in Darwin October 1

Just got word from the Australian Psychological Society that my submission to present an all-day workshop as part of its annual conference – this year held in Darwin in late September – has been accepted.

It has been a long time coming, as I’ve been proposing it for the last three years and each time it was rejected. This year, I put in for three different workshops and a paper presentation, and was waiting for all four to be rejected! This is called “Learned Helplessness”. But the all-day Presentation Magic workshop has been accepted, and while it is aimed at psychologists in various academic and applied settings, it will have practical value for those in other professions as well. Not sure if you have to register for the entire conference to attend, or just be a day registrant to gain access.

Should be a lot of fun challenging my peers about their presentation styles, which generally are perfect examples of “Death by Powerpoint”. The workshop happens at the end of the conference so hopefully with my trusty iPhone (which by then might be a 4th Generation model) I’ll take lots of pics of others’ slides during their paper presentations, and then perform a “slide makeover” during the workshop.

UPDATE: This workshop will now take place on Thursday October 1. It is the only all day workshop at the APS Conference scheduled for Thursday, and with places limited to 25 it will likely fill up fast.

From the APS website, here is the list of all workshops. The link to read more about them is here:
