presentation innovation

I’ve been pushing Presentation Zen by Garr Reynolds and Slide-ology by Nancy Duarte to anyone that will listen for about a year now. The two books both advocate making presentations that are more than simply slide after slide of bullet points. This year, I’ve given my MBA classes the task of doing presentations more in the style advocated by Garr & Nancy. The first set were done in my weekend class, and they were fantastic! The thing that really made me happy was that I could tell that making the students think in terms of images actually made them think differently. All in all, I was very happy with the outcome.

Then today, this post came across the slide-ology blog – it has three videos of Garr & Nancy talking about presenting, including this one:
