Habilidades necesarias para lograr una presentación exitosa con tu audiencia

Jean Luc lebrun's curator insight, June 9, 2014 4:46 PM

Behind these video doodles is an fun company: www.truscribe.com

What is interesting here is that the video is in perfect sync with the audio - this is why it is so powerful..

More critically, something is missing from the video: a summary. The author summarizes with "So there you have it, five things you need to know about people in order to give a better presentation", followed by a rapid zoom out revealing briefly ALL the pictures from the storyboard - too many and too fast to be of use as a memory prop.

Five may be a small number, but for our limited memory - it is huge. We have to remember five more or less disconnected ideas: 20 minute chunks, eye competes with ear, your speech is only a part of whole message (see nice screen illustration at time 3:36), call them to action, people imitate your feelings. It feels like a bullet list. The video could have brought back 5 key images corresponding to the 5 points to help anchor them in our memory.

This is why I recommend that the "take-away" slide, a.k.a. the conclusion or summary slide, refreshes people's memory by bringing back small pictures of the key visuals of the presentation next to the text points that they helped make. It does not matter if they are not fully readable, their role is simply to jog memory.

Seven Things Extroverts Should Know About Introverts (and Vice Versa)

1) We don’t need alone time because we don’t like you. We need alone time because we need alone time. Don’t take it personally.

 

2) We aren’t judging anyone when we sit quietly. We're just sitting quietly, probably enjoying watching extroverts in action...

The best RSS reader apps for iPad

The best RSS reader apps for iPad | ProfessionalDevelopment PerfectionnementProfessionnel | Scoop.it

Once upon a time, news came exclusively from newspapers, magazines, and television. Those poor saps: there was always a delay between event and coverage (in the case of newspapers, you were always a day behind), and you couldn’t tailor your news to your personal interests. Though much of our “news” reading now comes from Twitter and Facebook, those wanting more in-depth coverage will want to gather some RSS feeds. The iPad is one of the best ways to browse RSS feeds, and, likewise, reading news is one of the most common uses for an iPad.
