Nancy Duarte on Broken Presentations

Standard

Source

This is one of the best interviews with Nancy Duarte I’ve seen!  She says we know presentations are broken because of the level of engagement from the audience.  We can look to Twitter to see how well our presentations are going… If the audience is on Twitter in the first place, the presenter isn’t doing his or her job to keep the audience engaged.  If the audience is complaining on Twitter either during or after the presentation, the presenter definitely isn’t doing his or her job.

Duarte says presentations are the primary means of communication in business second only in email.  How can we ensure our visual communication is successful?  We must work to reengineer people on how to present effectively.  We must learn and apply the concepts of Nancy Duarte and Garr Reynolds among others.

What was your greatest takeaway from the Duarte interview?
