I am reading Presentation Zen right now. Great book so far, and it comes highly recommended by the blogging / elearning / learning world. While I don't create alot of "business presentations" I do create a lot of elarning and presentations for the classroom, and I think they are essentially the same thing. I have to communicate (sell) a knowledge skill or attitude (or idea). So the prinicipals hold true. I really like the questions he is possing so far. Some great ones that I can see using here at work.
What your (the) point?
Why does it matter?
Is it useful and necessary? or just interesting and cool?
Can I explain (sell) the message / idea in 30 secs?
oh some food for thought for sure...
This is a different way of thinking, especially for me , working here in the government, where everything seems to be drawn out in great detail. So, to help me practice, the blog will now live by those rules.
Whats the point, why does it matter, and it should take you no longer than about 30 seconds to read the post... lets see how it goes...
