Simon Sinek is an author best known for popularizing the concept of “the golden circle”, described by TED as “a simple but powerful model for inspirational leadership”. The premise is simple, all communication should start with “Why?”
Make a Powerful Point is a blog about PowerPoint, the art of presenting, visualization and Message Discipline. Yes it's yet another blog about PowerPoint. There are many good ones out there. Why this one?
I'm not naturally a good presenter. 10 years ago I was a corporate Brat. I had an MBA and was working through the whole .com thing. My presenting grade - a C minus. Not bad, but not great. Pretty typical in fact. Building decks, a strong C plus.
Then I became a consultant. I'm in the transformation business. I have to be able to change people's minds. To do that I have to get people to see things differently, and get them to act differently. That's not easy, but I would (modestly) say my grades have moved up. I have had to learn how, and this is a blog about how. PowerPoint is my weapon of choice.
