How To Do Everything Wrong In A Presentation

Watch this video...

Brutal (and funny)... I know.

I was unaware of the book, Habitudes For Communicators, so Dr. Tim Elmore gets high marks for not only cutting through the clutter, but for creating something so funny (because it's true). What's scary is that this video (in all of its humor) is a basic round-up of about ninety-percent of the presentations I attend (I'm sure your experience is similar). The tools are here for us to get better. If you want to make a difference in your world (and the world of your co-workers), please pass this video around, watch it... and then go out and read the following books (in this order):

  1. Give Your Speech, Change The World by Nick Morgan.
  2. Presentation Zen by Garr Reynolds.
  3. Resonate by Nancy Duarte.

Three books and you can not only deliver amazing presentations, but you can spare the rest of us.
