Visual Advocacy/PowerPoint Mastery Bootcamp

In this first-of-its-kind workshop & competition, the leading expert on using PowerPoint in trial will coach a select group of 10 trial attorneys to create a 15-minute opening statement they will deliver during lunch on Saturday, May 20. Attendees will vote on the top awards including:

Bring your case materials for an upcoming case and take advantage of this rare opportunity to get personal consulting directly from the guy who wrote the book on PowerPoint. There will be two zoom meet ups to prep.
