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.
Stephy Hogan is two parts designer, two parts developer, three parts perfectionist, and one part impatient mother. She is a founding board member at the Presentation Guild, has formatted more charts than she cares to count, works a day job, runs her own business, barely plays guitar, loves glitter, and taught a Microsoft developer how to pole dance. Now she enjoys making typically mundane experiences a lot more fun, like sitting through an 80-slide benefits presentation or your reading this bio.
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.
