The R. and the Associates

Rick Altman has been hired by hundreds of companies, listened to by tens of thousands of professionals, and read by millions of people, all of whom seek better results with their presentation content and delivery. He covers the whole of the industry, from message crafting, through presentation design, slide creation, software technique, and delivery. He is the host of the Presentation Summit, now in its 18th season as the most prominent learning event in the world for the presentation community.

Sheila McGurin plans and manages the many seminars and conferences hosted by Rick. Since 2003, Sheila has been the one “behind the scenes” making sure the 200+ attendees at the Presentation Summit have the very best possible conference experience.

From city and venue selection to Expo coordination to on-site liaison, Sheila makes sure the business side of the Summit exceeds expectations and continues to evolve.

In his nearly 35-year media career, Rick Parrott brings a lifetime of radio, TV, newspaper, magazine, and public relations achievements to the team as he focuses on audience building, sponsor development, and large-venue events.

As social media director, Tranelle Maner is the creative force behind our strategies to increase engagement and promote registration for the 2021 Summit.

Tranelle is a passionate and experienced content writer and digital media specialist. Her love for storytelling pushed her to a University of Florida Bachelor’s degree in journalism in 2019. Tranelle has become well-versed in best social media practices and believes that capturing one’s true voice is key to high engagement. 

When Tranelle is not discovering and uncovering new social media trends, you’ll likely find her at a coffee shop enjoying a freshly roasted cup while diving into a new podcast or news article.
