Presenting for Geeks - The Ebook

In their presentations, techies and geeks usually focus on the facts. Which results in presentations that are accurate, cover every aspect of the topic - and tend to overwhelm the audience. As a result, the audience will remember little, if anything, of the actual content.

Presenting for Geeks shows a different approach to presenting by putting the audience at the centre of everything. Seeing things from the audience's perspective leads to a more visual and engaging presentation style that helps them better understand and remember the content of the presentation. Read more about the book.

"If you or someone on your team wants/needs good presentation advice from a fellow technical presenter, then this is the book." -- Garr Reynolds, Author of Presentation Zen

Presenting for Geeks is available from the Amazon Kindle Store, from Google Play or via Ganxy (without DRM). The German translation, Präsentieren für Geeks, is available from Leanpub, from the Amazon Kindle Store, from the Apple iBooks Store, and from Google Play.

Embrace Constraints

I attended yet another pitching event recently. It turned out not to be as entertaining as others I had been to. Why?
