Thoughts – Successful Presenting


I’ve read this book twice, between 2014 and 2017, and a couple of times as a reference before my big presentation.

I say the book contains a lot of essential information and a variety of tricks to up your deliverance.

Printed in 130-ish pages, it were easy to digest but took me 2-3 days to absorb the whole content. Because it’s tiresome. Well, what do you expect from a how-to manual? Starting from definition towards table format. It’s a well-explained book, but it is also a quite monotonous as well. At least for me.

Few things I learned from this experience and happy to carry it around me are:

  1. Start with the end in mind. Think output!
  2. Know your audience, because they’re human too.
  3. Structure, a well-built structure. You can’t get lost with it.
  4. Know thyself. Attitude is contagious. Bad or good.
  5. There is no such thing a perfect format or style. Improve and find it with your voice (literally)

Overall: ☆☆☆☆

Content: ☆☆☆☆☆☆

Fun: ☆☆☆

Helpfulness to prepare that last minute presentation:

☆☆ (because you need to rehearse)

☆☆☆☆☆☆ (because the structure provided is straightforward and effective)
