This is straight out of Direct Marketing 101 (no, there are no new ideas under the sun) but worth remembering regarding asking for what you want.

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.

What a powerful article with a very simple idea: a winning structure to use for a 15-20 minute presentation!


If you are going to speak at TED or TEDx, or if you need to boil down an hour-long presentation to 15-20 minutes, how do you do it?


By following the 3 steps in the article. Written by Nick Morgan who works in public speaking, I think his advice really works.


And story is front and center. Now how great is that?!
