Up with Actual Public Speaking

Compelling presentations don't begin with PowerPoint. They don't end with PowerPoint. In fact (well, in my opinion), they are about as far away from PowerPoint as you can get. John Kotter's book, A Sense of Urgency, reinforces the message with his commentary about stepping away from the PowerPoint, out of the dim lights and into less-than-perfect delivery. This doesn't take the place of a coherent message or a practiced presentation, it simply reminds us that the power of a presentation lies within people's ability to connect with it, its speaker and the intent.
