Thanks...I might show this in my next public speaking or Pwr Pt class!

I was totally bored with his hard way but I think his easy way had a few too many steps too!

Hi Beth,

Great blog - love your writing style and your ideas.

While I agreed with TJ's points I would have to say that, for me, he made them very badly ...

1. Riddled with spelling errors - not exactly inspiring me with confidence

2. Talking to scrolling text with far too many words on screen - Cognitive Load theory says I can listen or I can read; but I can't do both.

3. He spent longer on the wrong way (and waaaaaay laboured the point) than he did on the right way.

4. He has 'jazz hands' - far too much gesticulation. This probably works quite well for him when he's using his considerable physical presence onstage, but it's very distracting, and a little annoying, for a still to-camera piece like this.

5. His estimate of "3 hours" for the right way is nonsense. Any presentation at this level worth watching is going to involve long, long hours of rehearsal.

So I agree with you - he has great ideas. But I disagree with you because for me, he presented them really badly. I'd give him 8/10 for content, 5/10 for delivery.
