Why not wow north carolina for slideshare

  1. 1. Why Not WOW? with Rex Castle
  2. 2. November, 2013, I flew into North Carolina and made my way to the Pinehurst Resort to present for a great group, the North Carolina Local Government Information Systems Association (NCLGISA).
  3. 3. I began my Why Not WOW? (based off my book on presentation and available through Amazon) with the story of the worst presentation known to man…mine. The following slides have some text on them. My slides, when I use a presentation tool with slides, generally do not.
  4. 4. Using the science described by John Medina in his wonderful read, Brain Rules: 12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School, I ask my audience to tell me how long we have from the time we get up until we first start losing our audience.
  5. 5. And I talk about PUNCH from one of Garr Reynolds’ exceptional reads.
  6. 6. The “P” stands for Personal (Again, none of these slides have text on them just cool pictures)
  7. 7. The “U” for Unexpected
  8. 8. The “N” for Novel
  9. 9. The “C” for Challenge
  10. 10. And the “H” for the double-edge sword of humor
  11. 11. This represents the other edge
  12. 12. I ask my audience, based off the science of Hermann Ebbinghaus and his Forgetting Curve, how long we have before we’ve lost more than 50% of what we just learned
  13. 13. With this animated slide we talk for a few minutes about Chip & Dan Heath’s incredible work
  14. 14. And a final question on memory going back to Dr. Medina is how long “can” it take to move something to long-term memory
  15. 15. With this animated slide we discuss the power positions on a slide and graphic placement and slide design and color and… My Q&A goes here, before my final “Here you go. Go change the world!”
  16. 16. 45‒50 minutes later I end with a conversation about the science of presentation primarily from Cliff Atkinson’s dynamic work, Beyond Bullet Points: Using Microsoft® PowerPoint® to Create Presentations that Inform, Motivate, and Inspire
  17. 17. Why Not WOW? with Rex Castle
  18. 18. Handouts I used in North Carolina
  19. 19. I use an 11X17” document that’s folded once for an 8.5X11”, 4-page handout. This is my simple title page
  20. 20. The inside page is an exercise I have where I ask them to list “verbatim” all the bullet points they remember. To date, I’ve had a couple of people able to list one.
  21. 21. The opposite inside page has my “memory” team exercise that allows them to talk, move around, learn together, etc.
  22. 22. Some of the resources I discuss during my presentation.
