Slides Prevent Us From Connecting at a Human Level

Mac Slocum interviews Nancy Duarte at Web 2.0

The kind folks at O’Reilly had me speak at Web 2.0 and then Mac Slocum asked some s-m-a-r-t questions at their booth.

Watch the video below to hear answers to these four questions:

  1. Are presentations inherently broken? Are we going about it the wrong way?
  2. If you ask most people if they like lectures they’ll say “No”, yet we default to that when it’s time to do a presentation, why do you think that is?
  3. Do you feel that every great presentation has a meta component to it–a language that’s being spoken outside the visuals or what’s being said?
  4. Do you think we’re getting better at business communication?
