Join NSA Houston for our Annual Presidents Celebration & Awards Ceremony honoring our Past Presidents for their outstanding service to the chapter, and voting in our new Board of Directors.


There are three elements to any presentation: the Structure, the Content, and the Delivery. Bill Stainton has won Emmy Awards as a producer (the structure), a writer (the content), and a performer (the delivery). Find out how a 29-time Emmy Award winner and Hall of Fame speaker applies the lessons he learned from the world of television (and from pals like Jay Leno, Ellen DeGeneres, and Jerry Seinfeld) to his presentations, and how you can do the same.

You’ll learn:

  • How to think like a producer when crafting your presentations
  • How to structure your presentations for maximum effect
  • A simple rule to help you plan your openings and closings
  • How to use the secrets of comedy writers to make your speeches and stories come alive
  • How to use acting tips to turn your presentation into a performance
  • Special considerations for virtual presentations

Bill Stainton, CSP, CPAE is a multiple Emmy Award-winning TV producer, writer, and performer; an author; and a business humorist. He blends the business smarts he learned from twenty years in corporate management with the show biz sparks he gleaned from working with people like Jerry Seinfeld, Ellen DeGeneres, and Bill Nye the Science Guy to create entertaining and enlightening keynote presentations on Innovation, Creativity, and Breakthrough Thinking.
