For the vast majority of us, giving a presentation isÂ an extremely difficult and nerve-wracking process, whetherÂ weâre in a one-on-one meeting, a conference room with aÂ dozen strangers, or a lecture hall in front of thousands.
But according to Dan Roam, the visual communicationsÂ expert and acclaimed author of The Back of the Napkin, itÂ doesnât have to be so hard. We struggle when we forget theÂ basic steps we learned in kindergarten: show and tell.
In this short but powerful book, Roam introduces a newÂ set of tools for making extraordinary presentations in anyÂ setting. He also draws on ideas heâs been honing for moreÂ than two decades, as an award-winning presenter who hasÂ brought his whiteboard everywhere from Fortune 500 companiesÂ to tiny startups to the White House.
Even if youâre already a good speaker, youâll learn moreÂ about understanding your audience, organizing your content,Â building a clear storyline, creating effective visuals,Â and channeling your fear into fun. And youâll master threeÂ fundamental rules:
â¢ When we tell the truth, we connect with ourÂ audience, we become passionate, and weÂ find self-confidence.
â¢ When we tell a story, we make complex conceptsÂ clear, we make ideas unforgettable,Â and we include everyone.
â¢ When we use pictures, people see exactly what we mean, we captivate our audienceâsÂ mind, and we banish boredom.
From nailing the opening to leaving a lasting impression,Â youâll soon be able to give the performance of a lifetime . . .Â time after time.
