Call for Speakers - The Art & Science of a Slide Deck

The Windhoek Chapter of the Professional Speakers Association of Namibia will once again be hosting a monthly meeting on the 19th of November 2019. The theme of the Chapter meeting is "The Art & Science of a Slide Deck".

A slide deck is a collection of slides (in PowerPoint, Prezi, Keynote etc) put together in the same presentation and used as a tool to assist in your speaking engagements. Like a deck of cards, each slide is a vital part of the overall package.
