Seven Lessons for Presentations
Marta Kagan writes on 7 Lessons From the World's Most Captivating Presenters. Drawing insights from the presentations of Steve Jobs, Gary Vaynerchuck, and Scott Harrison, she uses specific examples (picture and slideshare presentations) to illustrate the following lessons:
1. Start with paper, not PowerPoint
2. Tell your story in three acts
3. A picture is worth 1000 words
4. Emotions get our attention
5. Use plain English
6. Ditch the bullet points
7. Rehearse like crazy
It's a relatively long post, but easy to skim, and well-worth the effort.
