mLearnCon Speaker Prep: Insights on Presenting from Nancy Duarte

You might be getting yourself ready for mLearnCon this week.  For some of you that means getting presentations ready.  For others, preparation means picking out sessions to attend.  I would argue that BOTH of you should take a look at this interview on presenting.  Chris Brogan and Nancy Duarte talked about a few of the main points from  slide:ology: The Art and Science of Creating Great Presentations and Resonate: Present Visual Stories that Transform Audiences.

Just because you aren't presenting THIS year doesn't mean you won't be presenting at some point in your career.  Watch the video, read the books, and evaluate the presentations you see.  This will help you understand WHY Nancy says what she says, and WHY its important.

And for you speakers, the bar has been set! Tell a great story! Engage your audience! Present a session that even you would be willing to sit through ;-)

I'm looking forward to seeing all of you at mLearnCon!
