Unstartling presentation

David Weinberger

I fell for an ad today because it promised to tell me four startling things that happen to you before you get a heart attack. The video , which has no pause or fast forward button, is a grating infomercial, with a heavy emphasis on the “mercial.” ” So, here’s the startling information Dr. Chauncey Crandall so selflessly is imparting to us: The four things are: Chest discomfort.

Managing the situated present

Dave Snowden

Key to it is the idea of managing the situated present. If the past is traumatic, as it has been in Colombia (where I am at the moment) then re-situating the past in the context of present needs is important. In a previous series of posts I talked about the need for side-casting namely casting around in the present to see what is possible. In practice there is no one model of leadership, actions in the present are always preferable to jam tomorrow.

Presentation at CSPS

Euen Semple

Nicely shot video of me doing my bit at the Canadian School Of Public Service in Ottawa a couple of weeks ago. My talk starts at 2hrs 30mins in but before that, at around 1hr 2mins, there is a fantastic panel of four women from the school that is one of the best discussions of the real issues in tech that I have seen for a long time. The session was really well received and if you know anyone who is grappling with the issues I raise in my talk do, please, pass this on

Conversation, not presentation

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

When Jane Hart and I shared our thoughts on social learning at the Irish Learning Showcase in Dublin last week, a formal presentation would have run counter to our message. I intend to propose conversations in lieu of presentations whenever the opportunity presents itself. Instead, Jane and I had an informal conversation in the front of the room. In time, others joined in. The format enabled us change direction based on our reading of the mood in the room.

Payment Technologies: Past, Present and Future

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

I was reminded of this dictum when recently attending a very interesting workshop, Payment Technologies: Past Present and Future. It will emerge as a new asset class touching all aspects of society. ” Much of that valuable personal data is related to our past, present and future financial transactions one way or another. . History can be a useful guide to the future, especially when trying to predict the impact of disruptive changes on human organizations and cultures.

Positive Payload Weapons Presentation Mindmap

Clark Quinn

The other evening I went off to hear an intriguing sounding presentation on Positive Payload Weapons by Margarita Quihuis (who really just introduced the session) and Mark Nelson. As I sometimes do, I mind mapped it. I have to say it’s an intriguing framework, but it appeared that they’ve not yet really put it into practice.

Twitter for Learning: The Past, Present and Future

Jane Hart

Twitter turned 9 on 21 March. I’ve been on Twitter since March 2008. After it appeared in No 11 position on the 1st Top 100 Tools for Learning list in 2007, I realised I’d better sign up! And during the last 7 years I’ve seen lots of changes; and of course my own view of Twitter has changed too. […]. Social learning

A Storied Presentation

Adaptive Path

From time to time, we find ourselves in a position to share these ideas in a business context, often in the form of a presentation. When designing your presentation, remember that good stories offer questions and answers and key moments of reflection. We communicate with other people every day. Over the course of our lives we’ve developed verbal, written and visual communication skills that help us convey our thoughts.

Phoenix conference - opening presentation

Dave Snowden

First day session at Phoenix and I did a basic presentation. Slides here and no major new things for people familiar with this blog. Slide 3 has some new summary material which covers the following: The importance of the See-Attend-Act model of sense-making. Whether I see the data is an issue of its own right, if I will attend is even hard and getting people to take action is near possible.

Presenting in a networked age

Clark Quinn

The Learning Circuit’s Big Question this month has to do with the increasing prevalence of internet access during presentations. The context is that during presentations it’s certainly possible that your audience is multi-tasking, and the question is; what are the implications? The audience can be doing things related to the presentation, like live-blogging it, tweeting it, or taking notes (I’ve been known to mindmap a keynote a time or two).

Improving Your Presentation Skills – Part Deux

I am sure that you would probably still remember how a couple of weeks back I put together a blog post where I shared a good number of resources with plenty of hints and tips on helping “ Improve Your Presentation Skills “ No wonder. that most of us seem to be able to relate quite close to all along: you can never learn enough about the art of delivering an engaging and thought-provoking presentation in front of an audience.

You see the big picture as well as the details.

eLearning Strategy Presentation

Clark Quinn

I gave my eLearning Strategy presentation to the eLearning Division of ASTD’s LA Chapter. Despite some technical hiccups (GoToWebinar doesn’t seem to have a chat feature, nor does it allow Mac users to be presenters, ahem), the presentation went off reasonably well. And now, it’s available online. It takes quite a while to load (guess it’s *huge*), but you can hear the whole hour+. I’d welcome your feedback

Ignite, a five-minute presentation

Jay Cross

On Friday, I gave my first Ignite presentation on stage to an audience of 300 at Gnomedex in Seattle. Afterward, a fellow came who had judged presentations by a group of physicists on the same topic told me I presented more information in five minutes than the scientists covered in a hour. Just as you can put a lot of information into a 140-character Tweet, you can convey many thoughts in a five-minute Ignite talk. Micro-content is on the way. Ignite.

[VIDEO] The world’s first full motion-graphics presentation

Trends in the Living Networks

I have for many years intended to develop a full motion graphics presentation. I have long used highly visual presentations to accompany my keynotes, often including numerous videos without sound as well an array of full screen images. I decided TheNextWeb conference was a good opportunity to create my first full motion-graphics presentation. Below is a video of the keynote’s visual presentation.

Below are the slides from my presentation. Usual disclaimer: these slides are meant to accompany my presentation, not to stand alone. View more presentations from rossdawson. Today I spoke at Australian Chambers Business Congress on Build Your Business with Crowdsourcing. But in fact this time there is a little more detailed content than usual in my slides, as this was intended as a highly practical session on how to approach crowdsourcing.

Rules for Copying Presentation Style?

Clark Quinn

What are the rules for copying presentation style In a previous post - Video and Screencast Styles for Corporate Training? - I had mentioned Common Craft as an example of a particular well-known style that seems to have struck a chord. I'm still looking for examples of other good styles that people have seen. In the meantime, I ran across a post by Ewan McIntosh who points to a video by McKann Erickson (the big ad agency) that uses the same style as common craft.

The future of events: technology to make presentations interactive and social

Ross Dawson

However many conferences still sport essentially the same format as ever, a series of people presenting on a stage in front of a passive audience. Technology eenables us to re-conceive what a presentation is and can be. A recent article in Sydney Morning Herald on how the new app Zeetings helps “keep audiences awake” looks at Zeetings , “a presentation app that is both interactive and social, and promises to stop audiences slumbering in their chairs.”

Presentation Backchannel Multitasking

Tony Karrer

Some great responses to this month's big question New Presenter and Learner Methods and Skills. Or Clive Shepherd's How should presenters address multitasking? Binge Thinking I have learnt to take notes while giving nearly full attention to a presentation. Better Presentations = Less Multitasking A log of the responses point out that a distracted audience is first a symptom of the presenter's ability to engage the audience.
