    Cyndi Maxey, CSP & Kevin O'Connor, CSP

    Watch two platform skills experts break down short samples of YOUR keynotes and presentations LIVE! Cyndi and Kevin are two of our most esteemed NSA-IL members; they are internationally recognized experts on presentation skills and the co-authors of multiple books on the subject. Prepare your own brief (5 minutes or less!) presentation snippet if you'd like to be considered as a subject for this unique program (Note: subjects will be called based on the day and time they registered for this program)! Participation is not required, but an incredible learning experience is guaranteed for everyone in attendance.  

    Select any part of your talk that you want to work on – be it an arresting opener, a strong close, a poignant story to articulate a point…even adding humor.  Cyndi and Kevin will share what they think you’re doing well and how you can take your game up a notch next time you’re in the spotlight.  This is not a contest, but rather a professional laboratory of ideas and techniques.
