Event details

A virtual networking group aimed at supporting businesses in and around the Kingston-upon-Thames borough. This is now a bi-monthly,  every other month on the 4th Wednesday, alternating with FSB Kingston one month and with FSB Richmond the next.  

Our Speaker Session

David Henson is trained in photography, photographic processing and audio-visual production, David Henson set up The Regent Slide Company in 1986 and spent 13 years producing and imaging thousands of 35mm slides for many and varied businesses. But it wasn’t until he joined the Professional Speaking Association in 2016 that he realised that even good speakers produce bad slides. And now he’s on a crusade to eradicate excruciatingly boring slide presentations and to teach people how to produce slides that wow their audience and that make their talks memorable and effective.

My One Top Tip for Tip-Top Slide Presentations This 10-min talk will benefit anyone who has to present to any size audience and who wants to know how to use slides in the most effective way. David will present the one tip that will transform your slide presentations overnight.
