This presentation service can be used for many applications of athletics development.

Presentations are a typical tool for almost all business situations. Whether it is a board room, an external operations meeting, or a major gifts ask, the presentation is a crucial part of athletics development.

That is where Animoto can come into play. Rather than make a simple PowerPoint presentation that is plain and uneventful, Animoto claims to be the end of all slide shows, making pictures video oriented with narration and editing capabilities.

The applications for this tool for development are many. For one, it could be used to display a new and exciting facility to get the ball rolling on a capital campaign. The photo effects could be utilized as a student-athlete piece to describe the importance of giving back. One could even use it as a way to recap a successful donor event where attendees can remember the special night by viewing the presentation.

Click here to view a quick demonstration video that shows just some of the capability of this tool. Quick and easy to learn, Animoto can be used as a unique presentation avenue to stir the creative juices in development offices around the country.

NAADD and Ohio SAFMDuring this past year, Matt Kirinovic and Mike Milliron compiled data from a survey conducted for the NAADD organization in an effort to gather the best practices and peer comparison analysis from the industry. The two alums of the Ohio Univeristy Sports Administration Program were kind enough to share the final products of the research with Athletics Development Frontier.

The data was collected through an online survey of over 200 schools from around the nation at all levels of competition, from Junior and Community Colleges all the way to D-1 FBS. Kirinovic and Milliron also conducted 30 personal interviews to gather some qualitative answers to questions.

To see their findings, please click the below links to view their PowerPoint presentation as well as their written deliverable. There is some very useful information and real life data to be found within the documents.
