PPRS is a professional society of more than 150 active public relations professionals throughout Central Pennsylvania. Our members represent various types of organizations with expertise in all facets of public relations.

PowerPoint was released in 1987 and remains one of the most widely used presentation tools in business. Now, more than 30 years later, the software has evolved but many of us have not evolved with it.  In this interactive environment, how can we find new ways to use old presentation tools? And what else should we consider as compelling content delivery methods?  

Join us on April 26 as Amanda Forr, senior director of creative content at Bravo Group, helps us to delve deeper into more interactive, inspirational methods to deliver powerful presentations. 

When: Thursday, March 29, 5:30 p.m.

Location: Caddy Shack at Armitage Golf Club
