Slides Prevent Us From Connecting at a Human Level
By Nancy Duarte
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:
- Are presentations inherently broken? Are we going about it the wrong way?
- 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?
- 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?
- Do you think we’re getting better at business communication?
