The American Topical Association is offering an online course to help collectors improve their virtual presentation skills.

Titled “Say it with PowerPoint: How to Present your Stamps like a Pro,” the course will be offered in three sessions Jan. 5, Jan. 7 and Jan. 12. Each session will be held from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

The course instructor is Michele Bresso, a professor of public speaking, small group and leadership communication whose 30-year career in the communication field also includes serving as public relations director, publications editor, radio news director, workshop speaker and more.

Topics to be covered in the course include: what to put on a PowerPoint slide and what not to; effective slide layout, image and font choices; how to organize your presentation to keep the audience’s interest; ways to energize your delivery with verbal and nonverbal communication; and how to open and close a presentation with power and punch.

The cost for the three-day course is $25 for ATA members and $35 for nonmembers.
