Michael Pollan, Live and Unplugged
By Paula Tesch
We recently worked with Michael Pollan to design a presentation for the Annual Pop!Tech Conference, (http://blog.duarte.com/2009/11/visualizing-the-sun-food-agenda-with-michael-pollan/) and I have officially been transformed from appreciative fan to groupie.
He’s wicked smart, and a great communicator; and until his recent appearance at Pop!Tech, he had never delivered a presentation with slides. Scary, right? This approach keeps all the attention focused on his story, which means he’s gotta have a damn good story. (And he does.)
He’ll be speaking at several places next year, and giving the Sun Food Agenda presentation at least a few times. If you’re nearby, go check him out! I might just see you there.
