Making 'Transformative' Presentations

I went to a digital slide presentation this morning that was informative but not transformative — it didn't set me on a new course, or inspire me to take prompt action. There were gimmicky images fading in and out, but the motivational impact of the information technology was minimal. The presentation amounted to a partially wasted opportunity. Nancy Duarte seems to have opportunities like this in mind in her new book, Resonate

The Duarte book is discussed in a Conversation Agent post by Valeria Maltoni. The book, Ms. Maltoni says, is about giving a presentation that will "change the world." I wish my well-meaning presenter this morning had had an opportunity to read it. It might, at least, have changed my day.
