Notice how they use stories from their own lives to give us a deeper understanding of who they really are and why they do what they do. And see how they take us on an emotional roller coaster; one minute we feel great empathy, the next we are laughing. These are clips of US commencement addresses, where noted luminaries share advice ranging from the humorous to the profound.

Do Your Slides Pass the Glance Test?

Do Your Slides Pass the Glance Test? | Presentation Ideas | Scoop.it
