Making presentations TED style
Although I talk mostly about designing workshops here in this blog, the reality is that lots of us also have to do our "sage on the stage" bit every once in awhile.
Lucky for us, Garr Reynold's in his Presentation Zen blog just posted the "Ten Commandments" for TED speakers. He also included a fantastic list of presenter best practices accompanied by TEDTalks illustrating those.
A choice quote:
"But what the good presentations have in common is that they were created carefully and thoughtfully with the audience in mind and were delivered with passion, clarity, brevity, and always with "the story" of it (whatever it is) in mind."
