Social Presentations: Evolving Past PowerPoint

Tuesday, July 2, 2013: 6:00 PM9:00 PM

Friends Center

1501 Cherry Street

Philadelphia, PA

Our next Net Tuesday on July 2 will cover the topic of “Social Presentations”.  Everyone is aware of how social tools have enhanced the impact of videos, pictures and audio content.  But presentations are another, tremendously effective medium of expression.  How can presentations created in PowerPoint, Keynote or Open Office use services like SlideShare to reach more people and have greater impact?  How can we make the most of online presentation tools like Prezi and SlideRocket (or the new open source impress.js) to get our messages across?  How about embedding slide presentations into video with tools like Red Giant Presto?


We’ll explore these questions and more when we discuss social presentations at Philly Net Tuesday.  Doors will open at 6:00 PM on July 2 at the Friends Center, 1501 Cherry Street.  (Or, watch the live Internet stream at and tweet your questions and comments with the hashtag #phlnet2.)  We’re putting together a panel, moderated by Briana Morgan of the Office of HIV Planning, who has used these tools for years.  We’ll also be joined by Scott Pinkelman and Steve Lubetkin  (It’s not too late to join the panel.  If you, or someone you know might be interested, please contact


Who should attend this event?


  • Nonprofit staff and activists who want to learn how to use these tools to more effectively convey compelling messages to a broad audience.  (You’re invited to show your own presentations at the event — or those you know of — and get focused feedback and reaction from our presenters and fellow attendees.)
  • Techies who want to understand the social presentation needs of the nonprofit world, and how they can help.
  • Anybody who enjoys producing, consuming and sharnig rich content with the rest of the world.


RSVP’s via Meetup or Facebook are appreciated for planning purposes, but not required, and lite fare will be available.


The topic of social presentations hasn’t gotten a lot of attention in forums like Net Tuesday.  Yet these tools have incredibly powerful potential to express your message and advance your cause.  Join us to learn more about how to realize this potential, to share your own reactions and perspective and to understand this rich and important social medium.
