Share on LinkedIn

If anyone has followed this blog for anytime they know that Nancy Duarte is a favorite subject of mine. She passionately pursues the presentation development and design niche. Her two books, Resonate: Present Visual Stories that Transform Audiences and slide:ology: The Art and Science of Creating Great Presentations are two of my most dog-eared marked up books that I own. My only disappointment is that I do not follow her advice more. In this TEDxEast video, Nancy draws lessons on how to make a powerful call-to-action. From the “I have a dream” speech to Steve Jobs’ iPhone launch, she displays what all great presentations have: a common architecture.
