The Naked Presenter: Delivering Powerful Presentations With or Without Slides

Book Description

In his first two best-selling books Presentation Zen and Presentation Zen Design, Garr Reynolds gave readers the necessary tools for planning and designing successful presentations. Establishing the framework for beautifully designed and well-prepared presentations, he now examines the delivery of the presentation in this handy, beautiful, and simple guide.

The Naked Presenter
teaches readers how they can reach an audience by stripping away all that is unnecessary to get at the essence of the message. The naked presenter approaches the presentation task embracing the ideas of simplicity, clarity, honesty, integrity, and passion. She presents with a certain freshness. The ideas may or may not be radical, earth shattering, or new. But there is a "newness" and freshness to her approach and to her content. And if she uses slideware, her slides fit well with her talk and are harmonious with her message. The slides are in sync, and are simple and beautifully designed, yet never steal the show or rise above serving a strong but simple supportive role.

In this book, readers will learn how to achieve that balance and gain the skills to deliver presentations that are natural and memorable.
