Does your role involve giving presentations?
Many of us give presentations at least a few times a year. It doesn’t matter if you’re presenting to your team, pitching your services to a potential client, or instructing a class – when you’re speaking in front of others, it’s essential that you know how to inspire and engage them.
In “Show and Tell,” author Dan Roam teaches you how to tell the truth in your presentations, how to use stories to draw people in, and how to use pictures to captivate and inspire your audience.
Take stories, for example. Humans have been telling stories for thousands of years. We respond to stories almost as much as we do pictures. Stories have the power to inspire, to engage, and to convince people to take action. This is why Dan Roam believes that you should be using them in every single presentation that you give.
In the audio clip below, from our Book Insight on “Show and Tell,” we hear about the four types of storyline that you can use in your presentation: the report, the explanation, the pitch, and the drama.
