An interesting thing happened a few weeks ago. I received an email by one of the writers at Inc. Magazine who wanted to interview me for his upcoming article on Creating Effective PowerPoint presentations. You know what it’s like when you’ve been doing something so long that it’s like falling off a watermelon truck. It becomes easy, and because it’s effortless for you, you think it’s that way for everyone else.
The “secret” to effective presentations is, to me, just common sense. And what can I say about something that is so, well, common. Well, once my interview began with the writer, I was amazed by just how much there was to say about how to make a presentation effective. And I could tell by his response to my comments that he was getting info from me that he didn’t already know. He followed up by asking if he could quote me, and I was surprised to find out that he quoted me not once, but three times. I am not accustomed to seeing my own thoughts in print, but seeing them next to a photo of one of my heroes, Steve Jobs? Now that’s a good thing. Click on the link below for the Inc. Magazine article.
