Making information powerful

Last night I watched a program on Television. It was about information. And the presenter in my view succeeded to make it POWERFUL.

 Which characteristics of this presentation was most the appealing? Which features did you find to have a negative impact on you?

The program used some very innovative ways of presenting information:

  • Visual
  • Movement
  • Voice (and presentation style)
  • The lack of numbers (although the entire presentation was about reflecting numbers)
  • No bullet points

At the moment the skills gap is in my way to present this information better.  How do you deal with your own personal skills gap?

In the next 351 days we will continue to consider and build new skills to make the information we present more powerful.  Follow this blog by registering.
