I love this quick SlideShare program about what makes presentations rock that really packs a punch.

All my smart, capable MBA students struggle with creating compelling persuasive presentations. All of my senior executives struggle with the same.

So what would Steve Jobs do? How do you create a compelling presentation that brings results?

As this SlideShare shows us, it is all about distilling your presentation down to its core essence -- and then sharing it as a story, with stories, and with strong visuals. But there is much more to this program than that message -- so take a few minutes to flip through it and dig into its contents. You will be glad you did.

Wake up people's brains! Follow the rules given here. They work.

Yet if we know what to do, why don't we do it? Because it takes time, as this program says.

But think of it this way: can you affort NOT to invest the time when money and business and your reputation is on the table? Nope.

Data Storytelling: The Art and Science of Social Media Metrics

Data Storytelling: The Art and Science of Social Media Metrics | WEBOLUTION! | Scoop.it

What is data storytelling?
In two parts, it’s (1) how we use data visualization to help us see and read the story social data tells, and (2) how we as social media experts package that story and make adjustments to campaigns.


It should, but unless we can find the answer to the question “so what?” all that data just seems time-consuming. That’s why we practice data storytelling. It’s the act of data visualization before, during and after mining/analyzing data.


For all of us who want to know how to share the stories data tells, then this article gives a great framework. You'll have to read down to the end, however, to get to the gold.


Most of the article is about measuring social media campaigns. Then we get to the good stuff: the model for storytelling with data that contains 5 elements.


The other insights are good, so grab those. Then pay attention to those 5 elements and start working on your data stories. The model should get you started.
