Advocate of the Year, this year’s P.A.E.C.T. Southeast Regional Director, and always a DEN (super) STAR, Brandon Lutz is a legend at PETE&C any year. His name is synonymous with 60 in 60, a presentation that packs an overflowing full house eager to cheer him as he achieves the superman impossible: 60 tools in 60 minutes.

Hard to find a faster hour, unless it’s his App Attack: 60 Apps in 60 Minutes. The countdown begins... Brandon began his presentation by noting he has added 50 new since last year because he is always trying to keep his work fresh, timely, and relevant. Prezi: Keynote or PowerPoint is Prezi, a whole new concept in presentation media. Super Simple, Fast, and Fun! Another amazing presentation, the second of two 60in60 presentations in one day!
