Want a Standing Ovation?

Published on

This presentation was originally designed for my husband, who is a social science high school teacher. He wanted his students to learn good presentation habits. I wanted to share what I've learned from from my career and experience as a learning and development professional. I owe a lot to my gurus including: Nancy Durate, Seth Godin and Garr Reynolds. Presentations that are a colossal waste of time and talent are a thing of the past...have fun, create meaning and get that standing ovation!

  • Involve them
  • Forget using them as a telepromptor
  • Use a story board or post-its to organize your thoughts and ideas before you create your PowerPoint presentation…whatever works. Garr Reynolds, describes Storyboarding in his book Presentationzen. See Reference section for the complete reference. Garr also has a blog that talks about this form of presentation, http://www.presentationzen.blogs.com/
