(EA) Presentation Tips from Bolt | Peters

As EA’s, we use communication as one of our main tools.  I am always on the lookout for information and tips on how to present (in fact, how to *communicate* – bidirectionality is important).  So before you take one on the chin and are ‘bout to present your ideas, don’t get light headed and feint…go for a knock out! (ran out of ways to cram more boxing puns in there)  Check out this blog for some good pointers from bolt | peters.

Spool vs Tufte: Giving Great Talks.

I had the privilege of Jared Spool attending and critiquing some of my recent talks, and in preparation for a UIE webinar I’m giving, he took time to rip me apart give me some awesome feedback. His advice reminded me of notes I took almost ten years ago at an Edward Tufte seminar about giving great talks, and so the next logical step was to make old-timey boxing photos of them both and write a mashup of their talking tips. RIGHT? Both Jared Spool and Edward Tufte are known to be kick-ass speakers in the technology field – Tufte is all up in the freaking white house, and Jared speaks roughly 400 days a year around the world. I think we can learn a lot from their advice, and despite the artificial conflict introduced with boxing pictures, their tips are mostly complimentary.
