Many speakers look at PowerPoint/Keynote slides as a necessary evil, and almost everyone groans when they know a slide deck is coming. But slides are an incredibly powerful tool that can greatly increase the impact, value, and enjoyability of your speech.

Mike Robertson took NSA by storm eight years ago when he did his first breakout session at the summer convention. After that, he presented at five other NSA conferences, visited more than 20 chapters, did ALL the slides for Winter Conference and INFLUENCE in 2018, and was hired by many of the top speakers in America to redesign their slides—including an NSA President. He’s going to reveal to you many secrets and techniques that will take your slides from powerless to super-powered.

Mike Robertson’s job title is Creative So-and-So and it’s a fitting description. Professional speaker, musician, author of four books, graphic designer, storyteller and professional Santa Claus, he believes in living a Technicolor life, not a pale, black-and-white version. He approaches every project with humor, warmth, story, and creativity. In October, he premiered his one-man show about his COVID-era project: photographing more than 250 old Texas movie theaters, which will be touring historic theaters in 2023. He lives in Austin with his wife, Lisa.
