Establishing the framework for beautifully designed and well-prepared presentations, he now examines the delivery of the presentation in this handy, beautiful, and simple guide. The Naked Presenter teaches readers how they can reach an audience by stripping away all that is unnecessary to get at the essence of the message. The 'naked presenter' approaches the presentation task embracing the ideas of simplicity, clarity, honesty, integrity, and passion. They present with a certain freshness. The ideas may or may not be radical, earth shattering, or new. But there is a 'newness' and freshness to their approach and to their content. And if they use slideware, their slides fit well with their talk and are harmonious with the message. The slides are in sync, and are simple and beautifully designed, yet never steal the show or rise above serving a strong but simple supportive role. In this book, readers will learn how to achieve that balance and gain the skills to deliver presentations that are natural and memorable.
