Accounting profs at a convention don’t change their normal demeanor of dull, boring, and dull. Do you think we’re any different than what we show in Accounting 101? Not likely.
So, what’s to do at an accounting professor convention? Walking around, checking e-mail, sitting in on presentations.
I have a poster presentation scheduled on Monday.
A regular presentation is where a speaker is allotted 30 minutes to bore the audience to death. More lethal than death by PowerPoint, it’s death by professor presentation.
A poster presentation is different. A professor tacks up a 48×36 poster, and stands in front of it for 90 minutes. People will walk by and perhaps make a comment. Most accounting professor posters aren’t any more interesting than Accounting 101, but no one dies. My poster can be viewed by clicking here (thanks for Marsha Huber for basic instruction in how to create posters, and thanks to the incredibly talented BKA who designed it in Powerpoint).
