Present & Persuade

 

Check out this amazing slide show with Nancy Duarte and Garr Reynolds, two experts on presentations, one of the most important leadership skills around. Effective presentations engage, motivate and inspire people. Bad presentations do the opposite.

My number one rule of presenting?  Make sure that the purpose, audience and information delivered all fit together.  This takes a lot of thought, but makes presentations more engaging and persuasive.  Many people decide to skip the rehearsal process.  Don’t… It matters. Finally, don’t read me the slides. Slides should be visual, not words.  Notice how Duarte and Reynold’s slides are visual, engaging, and not loaded with data or bullet points?  ‘Nuff said.
