Motivational stuff - how presentations should be,
This review is from: Resonate: Present Visual Stories That Transform Audiences (Paperback)
I loved Resonate. The book is an example in itself as to how to motivate. The key message being that you need to engage not just minds but also the emotions and the way to do that is through storytelling. Nancy Duarte sketches out a timeline (she uses the term Sparkline) for presentations and illustrates how all great presentations go through various phases. By using this structure anyone can plan their presentation to ensure there are elements of contrast, elements of surprise and balance between pathos(emotion), ethos(respect) and logos(logic). The book is very US centric and all the examples are American but for me the message is universal. This book will be something you will dip into for inspiration time and time again.
