Seth Godin on giving presentations
If you are nervous about giving presentations, Seth Godin says first try giving one without any slides.
If you want to see the master in action, watch as His Purpleness addresses an audience of Google employees. Not only does Seth make it look easy, the concepts in his presentation can apply to just about any business.
Other blogs that reference Seth Godin on giving presentations:
Not bad. I wish, though, that Seth opened his blog up for comments. Still, I agree with the fundamental notion of simplicity. Tools such as Powerpoint actually distract; and the conversation approach he suggests is effective.
¶ I try to meet people in the audience before a presentation, partly to do a Vulcan mind-meld for stories to lead the session, then launch into the real thing. Charging a couple of grand seems like a lot for an hour, but people don’t realize that the prep work isn’t just the eight hours spent in research, but the half-hour of rubbing shoulders prior to talking.
