    This is great information, Michael. Thanks for sharing it with us!

    • TorConstantino

      That’s the great thing about Michael’s blog is that he ALWAYS provides relevant, useful, wow-packed content!

  • Dan Erickson

    I almost stopped at the slide “before” as it broke all the rules of effective slides, until I clicked and saw the point in the “after” slide. Great slideshow and solid public speaking advice.

    I’m almost done with my own public speaking series. Today’s post is “Ten Tips for Better Public Speaking Delivery” at

      Oooow….timing is everything. Thanks for the resource, I look forward to swinging by your place to read your post.

  • Esther Aspling

    I LOVE this presentation. It is truly inspiring! Effect achieved (and shared)! :-)

    • TorConstantino

      I agree Esther! Relating another point of yours, I find one of the benefits of Michael’s fantastic content is that we can share it with confidence – adding value to our own tribes and audiences.

      • Esther Aspling

        Agreed. His is definitely one of my most shared reads. :-)

    This pretty much sums up my college Journalism 101 class – I love the point “…It’s not about how much information you can give, but it’s about how much they can receive and remember…”

    Also, the idea that the audience is king is a breakthrough concept that I’ve never heard phrased that way. Awesome content!

      Isn’t remembering the key? Otherwise, why say anything at all? It’s a tremendous point worth the effort to memorize.

  • Eric Anderton

    Thanks for sharing Michael. Excellent stuff.

  • TorConstantino

    …BTW, I must be living under a rock. I’ve never seen the “pay for a tweet” service before at the very end of the deck to access the content for free. That is an incredibly cool tool!

  • Kathryn Goldman

    Well, you inspired me to go back over my current presentation to focus on the story and get to the point. Thank you.

  • Mark

    Thank you for sharing this. I need help with presentation.

  • George Rodriguez

    I love presentations that are a perfect meld of message, design and layout. Very cool. Reminded me of everything I read in “Presentation Zen” by Garr Reynolds. Thank you.

  • Kay

    Love it! Great reminders. Why do we make it so difficult?

    • Julie Sunne

      My take exactly, Kay! Why is simple so hard?!

  • DS

    Enjoyed the clutter-free presentation and the encouragement to say what needs to be said – without the fluff.
