  • 65. What’s this have to do with presentations? Two things...
  • 66. 1 Passively sitting is a very unnatural thing. Audiences have no patience for tedium. Think of the presentation from your audienceʼs point of view.
  • 67. 2 During the preparation stage, if youʼre struggling with an idea, if youʼre stuck, then go for a walk, a run, just move...

  • 119. Review
  • 120. Rule #1 Exercise boosts brain power. eview✓ Our brains were built for walking/moving!R ✓ To improve your thinking skills, move! ✓ Exercise gets blood to the brain, bringing it glucose and oxygen. ✓ Aerobic exercise 2x/week halves the risk of general dementia, reduces risk of Alzheimer’s by 60%. ✓ Exercise is just about the best thing you can do for yourself says Dr. Medina.
  • 121. Rule #4 We don’t pay attention to boring things. iew✓ No multitasking. When it comes to ev attention, it’s only one thing at a time.R ✓ We are better at seeing patterns, abstracting meaning than recording details. ✓ Tapping people’s emotions helps them learn. ✓ People start to fade after 10 minutes. Get them back by telling stories, examples, and targeting their emotions.
  • 122. Rule #10 Vision trumps all other senses. iew ev ✓ Vision is our dominant sense, using half ofR the brain’s resources. ✓We learn/remember best through pictures compared to text or spoken words. ✓Try to communicate more with pictures. ✓Toss your current PowerPoint slides.
