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. I craved better stories, and better slides.
Over the last 10 years I've taught myself how to create effective presentations for academics, practitioners, policymakers, researchers, students and evaluators. I also learned how to create illustrations and comics so I could use them in my slides. 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... I have a PhD in Community Psychology because I'm passionate about using research and evaluation for social equity. I'm currently a research associate at a nonprofit research and evaluation center in Colorado.
To me, this is MUCH more than just making "pretty slides." Making our work more accessible is a social justice issue. Knowledge is power & I believe we should share knowledge in engaging ways so that it can be used to create social equity.
I can't wait to make you an astronomically awesome presenter!
See you in the course!
