While this is not technically in Philadelphia, it is a short train ride - and worth the trip. This is a no frills conference. At First Round, speakers — local to the city where each event is held — share their first-round presentation process by showing the original work they presented to client [x] the very first round. The goal of the event is to provide attendees with ideas, techniques, and confidence to improve their own presentation skills so that more of us can make the best work possible for our clients as well as highlighting that design is a process and that few projects come out fully developed in the first round — this is a unique opportunity to learn how to present your work and get your best work implemented.
