Karen Dietz's curator insight, October 27, 2014 3:03 PM

Article Link: http://bit.ly/1wCLi0E 


Here is what I like about this article: the concrete examples of stuff most people say in a presentation that doesn't work, and then rewrites to show how to storify that statement, or share a story instead.


Delivering great presentations takes lots of practice and delivering occasional duds. Yet if you follow the advice here in this article, you can nail it every single time. (**Secret: the same tips apply to creating awesome blogs)


I really like the example of how to turn a statistic into a story. After incorporating these tips, I hope all your presentations are award-winning!

OK, OK, one more about the presentations... it would be one plus more than needed if this presentation-business were not so difficult (allegedly it's one of the greatest fear to speak publicly - I can attest this...:-)))... So, it is a short one and a good one...:-)))

The Google +1 Is More Popular For Retailers Than The Facebook Like Button

The Google +1 Is More Popular For Retailers Than The Facebook Like Button | Virtual Assistant Social Media Content Curator | Scoop.it

Google's +1 buttons appear on more retail websites than Facebook share buttons or Twitter buttons according to an analysis by Darren Herman, chief digital officer at The Media Kitchen, a media planning and buying firm.

The finding is both surprising and logical. It's surprising because Google's +1 buttons are relatively new. It's logical because any smart retailer is going to do whatever Google wants in the hopes of getting better search placement.

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.
