The 5 Most Memorable Concepts From Nancy Duarte’s New Book, Resonate - Advance Your Slides

The 5 Most Memorable Concepts From Nancy Duarte’s New Book, Resonate - Advance Your Slides | Digital Publishing | Scoop.it

When Nancy Duarte announced her second book, a prequel to her wonderful first book, Slideology, I was excited. But when I heard that it was designed to teach about harnessing the power of stories and storytelling in presentations, I was beside myself. I’ve been a fan of many different art forms for as long as I can remember, and I’ve always been particularly drawn to the storytellers, from Billy Joel and Ben Folds, to Tolkien and Spielberg. But despite the large volume of film, music, and literature I’ve consumed in my life, I’ve never really studied the structure of these stories in any great detail.

I constantly see video "gurus" telling people to just insert all your script text into PowerPoint slides, read it aloud while recording, and...BAM!...instant video!

 

I've always contended that this is a questionable strategy at best for delivering a visual message. Here is one of the leading presentation experts on the planet explaining part of my contention.

Your business needs the "Made to Stick" factor, and the power of a good story will give you that lasting impression with your clients or customers.


One of the best aspects within the story are the personal touches, or a memorable character.

A Presentation Isn't Always the Right Way to Communicate | Nancy Duarte

A Presentation Isn't Always the Right Way to Communicate | Nancy Duarte | Digital Publishing | Scoop.it

...Of course, it’s common practice to circulate decks of slides before meetings, but often they’re too opaque to be understood without guidance from a presenter — or they’re so packed with“teleprompter” text that people have a hard time digesting them. Asking everyone to decode your cryptic bullets or plow through a lot of verbiage before you meet is setting yourself up for disappointment. Nobody has the time, and your ideas could get lost in translation. So give people a document that’s meant to be read, not presented. One they’ll grasp quickly and easily on their own.

 

You can create a slidedoc by re-chunking your message into key points and illustrating them with pictures or diagrams, along these lines:

 

Studies show that this combination — concise text paired with visuals — helps people understand and retain concepts more easily. As clinical psychologist and author Haig Kouyoumdjian points out, “Our brain is mainly an image processor (much of our sensory cortex is devoted to vision), not a word processor. In fact, the part of the brain used to process words is quite small in comparison to the part that processes visual images.” So, pare down the wording, but leave enough context to allow your deck to live on its own without your voiceover....
