Presentation Advice from Chip & Dan Heath

Made to Stick is a great guide to building and communicating your ideas more effectively. I thought this link to the Heath brothers’ Fast Company column on delivering presentations was interesting.

It reinforces (and better states) my point about creating questions in your audiences’ minds and then answering them.

Whenever you are presenting, think of each slide or major point as begging a question you then need to answer. The gradual reveal pulls your audience or reader along. To do this you have to have layed out a logical storyline, thus imposing orgaizational discipline.
