International Lactation Consultant Association® (ILCA®) is partnering with Aspire Communications again this fall to bring you two visual language workshops to help you support your practice and hone your interactive presentation techniques.
The first workshop will be offered in Hartford, Connecticut, 4–6 September 2015. The second workshop will take place in Oakland, California, 7–9 October 2015, in partnership with the California Breastfeeding Coalition. Both workshops will cover:
- All aspects of making and delivering PowerPoint presentations, including ways to transform your talks into truly effective and engaging visual communication
- Converting bullet points into entertaining and memorable visuals that captivate audiences
- Building a flexible, hyperlink-based structure called a presentation platform that helps you organize and dynamically display any presentation topic at any moment
- Building picture stories, picture roles, content graphics, and other essential visual strategies
- Key photography techniques for capturing and building a personalized visual content library
Workshop fees are $639 per person, which includes your conference registration and Aspire’s Visual Language Template Package, containing three pre-built master shows that can be used to quickly assemble a flexible, powerfully visual collection of all your presentation content.
Enrollment in these workshops is limited. When enrolling, be sure to use promotional code vip175 to receive the ILCA-member registration rate. Discounted hotel rates have been negotiated for participants, though you will need to book accommodations separately.

This is a fantastic opportunity. I’d love to attend. While I am in Canada, it would cost additional air fare as well. This would make attending very costly. Is there any way you could locate these wonderful opportunities closer to the border so that we could have an opportunity to attend without as much cost? This is another barrier to not only becoming an IBCLC, but maintaining certification and continuing to aspire to be the best IBCLC one can. I realize this is not only a challenge for a Canadian IBCLC it is the same for any IBCLC world wide. Becoming and maintaining certification is a real strain financially and psychologically especially if your employer does not support the value of your certification. It is the internal validation that is most important. Having the finances to support this internal validation at times can be a challenge. This is a challenge worth moving forward on, for our moms’ and babies’ benefit.
Thank you so much for your feedback. We are regularly seeking opportunities to provide content to all of our members around the world. If you are an ILCA member, we hope that you are taking advantage of opportunity to earn free CERPs this year. We also offer a variety of webinars that can be viewed anywhere in the world. And of course, we hope to see you at the ILCA 2017 conference in Toronto!
I have taken this workshop, and cannot commend it enough. “Visual language” ain’t your grandma’s PowerPoint … but it is *only* PowerPoint, so learning to create a new presentation platform is within the grasp of most anyone.
