This short video is a great explanation of why the old model of presenting doesn’t work and what we can do to make sure our ideas resonate:

If the medium isn’t being used properly, and if our ideas aren’t connecting, why do some people still insist on using PowerPoint in this uninspiring way?
What can we do to encourage people to join the presentation revolution?
