  • Visual aids and the use of props

RSVP: Allison Brown by Wednesday 22nd February 2017

Allison will contact those who register to ask if you can provide examples of what sort of presentations you do or plan to, so we can make sure the workshop will help you in these situations. Please let us know when you register if you are a LIANZA member or plan to present at a LIANZA event.

Following the event, those who would like to, can go across the road to the recently revamped Captain Cook Hotel and enjoy a meal there together.
