I'M ECHO & MY PASSION IS HELPING YOU LEARN EFFECTIVE VISUAL COMMUNICATION SKILLS.
I noticed a need for more fun, engagement, and design within academia. Frankly, I was bored to tears. As an undergrad and grad student, I grew frustrated with text-heavy, boring presentations. As a presenter, I wanted to do everything I could to be more engaging, captivating, and -- most importantly -- effective.
In the last 10 years I've given nearly 100 presentations, workshops, trainings, or lectures to academics, researchers, students and evaluators. I created BLAST OFF to STELLAR SLIDES to share my step by step process for storyboarding, designing, and delivering effective slide-based presentations.
As for my formal background... Well, I have a PhD in Community Psychology because I'm passionate about using research and evaluation for social equity. For the past couple years, I've been working as a research associate at a nonprofit research and evaluation center.
To me, making our work more accessible to students, colleagues, and our communities is a social justice issue. Knowledge is power & I believe we should share knowledge in engaging ways. But, we aren't trained in effective visual communication skills in grad school and that is unlikely to change anytime soon. So, I made this course to fill that gap.
I can't wait to save you hundreds of hours (and years of effort) by showing you what I wish I had known when I first started!
See you in the course!
