senior creative director | alchemist
Hometown: Cumberland, MD
Steve is currently a Senior Creative Director at automätik with over a decade in “the biz.” He has developed engaging curriculum for dozens of automätik’s clients and facilitated for many of those programs as well.
His current pastimes revolve around raising his three children with his wife, Amanda, volunteering his training abilities at his local church teaching the youth group and occasional seminar-style courses (which are highly interactive, of course!), reading as much non-fiction as he can get his hands on, and enjoying the outdoors when time allows.
If you are facilitating a meeting or a corporate event, it is always good to begin with some sort of pre-session activity. You may think these are unnecessary and waste time, but an interactive and constructive pre-session activity sets the stage for a successful and productive meeting.
When you hear the word “PowerPoint,” what comes to your mind? Many would say their thoughts include boring corporate events, long-winded presentations, and possible snoring. PowerPoint slide decks can be illustrative, dynamic visual aids, but they are more commonly designed in a way that prompts audiences to nap rather than engage.
While clip art may have once served a useful purpose for you or your organization, there are now a plethora of ways to avoid it and find higher quality alternatives instead. We promise, your quest to banish clip art will be easier than you think, and, ultimately, by using better images and illustrations in your presentations and documents, you’ll produce more impactful work.
