What is it?

Pres4Lib is

  • a presentation camp for library speakers and trainers
  • a series of informal gatherings and lightning talks to share ideas, technologies, and discussions around how to deliver effective presentations
  • an opportunity for presenters and trainers (and those interested in presenting and training) in the library community to network and share their tips, technologies, best practices, and experiences
  • an unconference which will include open space “birds of a feather” breakout discussions groups to foster discussions around how to deliver effective presentations
  • a chance to become a better presenter/trainer
  • a way to develop your presenting/training toolbox

When and where is it?

Should I come?

Yes, yes and yes! If you work in any information related agency and are championing your cause to inward facing colleagues and outward facing patrons, then this is the event for you. Learn how to speak with confidence, clarity and humor. Well, maybe not humor but with jocularity. Either way, come!
