How to tell a story in a presentation is easier said than done. The main reason is lack of experience and knowledge in how to tell a story. Actually, that’s not entirely true… You’ve been listening to and telling your own stories your whole life. So why is it so hard to tell a story in a presentation?
Telling a story in a presentation is harder mainly because presenting is not easy… at least, at first. Hopefully, after watching this week’s video you’ll see that telling a story in a presentation is possible… Even though it does take some organization, preparation and practice.
This week’s presentation skills video is a review of a presentation from TED.com. If you want to see great presentations and presenters, TED is probably the best place to watch and learn.
Anyway, in this week’s video you’ll hear Liam and I comment and teach as we watch a TED presentation. We’ll talk about many aspects of the presentation, so make sure you’re paying attention.
The biggest thing is to listen to how we explain the way the presenter uses questions and statements to introduce his topic and tell his story. Got that? 🙂
One more time… Listen to how the presenter uses questions and statements to introduce his topic and tell his story… in a presentation!
Here’s the video… Let us know what you think, what you learned and how you can apply these techniques in your next presentation.
