200 and counting!

This post marks the 200th in a series of little comments on #presentationskills . I started the blog in March 2013 and the current number of hits is over 120,000. Thank you for your interest!

The most popular posts are listed below. It is encouraging to see that the most popular is the #htdap. It amuses me still that the post on prezi is so popular and of course that performance anxiety is always an issue.

And the least read posts are listed. They are of course from back at the beginning but there is still some insight to be gained from them. Share the love!

I’m pleased the way this blog has helped me develop my own ideas and humbled that so many folk have commented how much these post and ideas have helped them improve their presentations. I am grateful to the numerous colleagues who have written guest posts describing their own experiences regarding the value of this approach and hope to add to that in the future.

I had, naively, thought that others would quickly see as I did that presentations in their current form simply do not work but the truth of the matter is that is not the case. I am not a great thinker merely I speak frequently on on the matter. Every single minute of every single day people around the world are standing up to read their powerpoint to audiences and the amazing things they have to share are lost, like tears in rain. This is neither due to a lack of insight of the presenter nor a lack of input but in the method of construction and hence delivery of their message. The message that presentations can engage and educate and inspire and communicate is still fresh and needs to be shared as widely as possible. 

So please, keep on reading, keep sharing the posts, keep discussing how we can make presentations better and being an example to others that we can engage and encourage and inspire though presentations. Thank you.
