DWDD Summerschool: Wouter Bos: I have a Dream kijk je op 6 Ways to Quit Bullet Points with Style. Create a Conversation, Not a Presentation. Nicholas Blechman for HBR When I worked as a consultant, I was perennially guilty of “the great unveil” in presentations—that tendency to want to save key findings for the last moment and then reveal them, expecting a satisfying moment of awe.

Create a Conversation, Not a Presentation

My team and I would work tirelessly to drive to the right answer to an organization’s problem. We’d craft an intricate presentation, perfecting it right up until minutes or hours before a client meeting, and then we’d triumphantly enter the room with a thick stack of hard copy PowerPoint slides, often still warm from the printer. But no matter how perfect our presentation looked on the surface, we regularly came across major issues when we were in the room. These one-sided expositions frequently led to anemic conversations. The last-minute nature of the unveiling meant that our clients (or internal teammates to whom we were presenting) did not have time to fully understand the information and were not prepared to participate in discussion.

Hoe je overtuigt als Barack Obama en zijn speechschrijver Jon Favreau

Tijdens het seminar 'Onzichtbaar overtuigen' deelde Favreau een aantal lessen die hij van de machtigste man ter wereld leerde over schrijven en overtuigen. Jon Favreau vertelde in theater DeLaMar 5 dingen die hij leerde van Obama over persuasion. Van de 5 lessen die hij noemde waren er 4 prima, maar de 5e vond ik véél interessanter dan alle andere.

Die 5e les is namelijk een overtuigingstechniek die je haast nooit hoort in Nederlandse presentaties. Het is de overtuigingstechniek waardoor Obama iets lukte dat alle presidenten voor hem niet was gelukt: het invoeren van een ziektekostenverzekering voor alle Amerikanen. Maar eerst kort de 4 andere lessen over overtuigen van Barack Obama en Jon Favreau: Les 1: Je verhaal is belangrijker dan je woorden Focus nooit als eerste op de woorden, oneliners of slogans die het meest overtuigend zijn. Les 2: Hou het simpel Obamacare. 10 tips for better slide decks.

10 Ways to Prepare for a TED-format Talk

It’s easier to blather on for an hour than talk for a tight 18 minutes knowing that if you go over, you (literally) will get the hook. The talks I give usually take me a comfortable 45 minutes but I needed to get the insights out in 18 minutes. The culling process forces you to convey only the most important information for spreading your idea. The amount of rehearsal time is inversely proportionate to the length of the talk.
