Cinema is all about stories, and we have to admit that stories in presentations are a subject that’s only been widely talked about in recent years. So clearly, there is so much to learn from cinema, and then we can use that wisdom to create better presentation messages. But even I did not expect to find so much amazing information about stories in a feature that explores office spaces of Bollywood cinema directors! For example, here’s something I found in this feature: ”A lot of things have beginnings, middles, and ends — but that doesn’t make them stories”. If that wasn’t thought-provoking enough for you, how about this one: ”Suspense, tension, and conflict — these things shouldn’t be limited to specific genres”.

There’s a lot to learn from Indra Nooyi in this amazing 2-minute speech. She is very emotional all through her speech, and that adds to the sincerity of her delivery.

Here’s an amazing TED talk by Larry Smith that talks about passion–and how many people fail even after they discover their passions. And why is that so? Because they don’t act on their passion.

Strolled to this video–and this has got to be one the most informative and entertaining videos that I have seen. Great introduction to how 4:3 originated and how we moved on to super wide ratios before standardizing (at least to some extent) with 16:9. John Hess from FilmmakerIQ.com has created an amazing video that is a must-see!

Just got to see Guy Kawasaki presenting at TEDx Harker School. Not surprisingly, he has done an amazing job. The best part is how Guy talks–he uses his voice in a way that does not make him sound arrogant. Rather he sounds so much humble. Yet, the content of his presentation does not seem to be related to humility. He talks about the 12 things he learned from Steve Jobs, but sounding so approachable, human, and humble may have been the 13th trick he learned from Steve Jobs.

FF Chartwell is a different font type. Rather than show alphabets or numbers, or even dingbats, it creates simple charts. What’s more–FF Chartwell is an intelligent font that can create calculations based on your numbers and automatically create pie charts based on percentage values. It also creates other chart types, as explained in this video.

One of the most interesting talks I have heard in a long time comes from TED, one of my favorite sources of inspiring content.

In this talk, Simon Sinek explains why most mundane presentations (or almost anything) are geared towards answering the “what” questions. And then he goes on to explain that we must also ask ourselves the “how” and “why” questions–only them will we be convinced enough to spread the enthusiasm to others!

You will absolutely love this video of how the Stockholm folks used iPads to create a novel presentation. Of course, we don’t know how they made the bulb and the flower appear! 🙂

Don McMillan is a well known “corporate comedian” who has created and posted a few video clips on sites like YouTube. His videos bring out the lighter side of concepts such as the use of too many bulleted lists in PowerPoint, or even speakers who speak every single word from their slides.

You can find out more about Don at his Technically Funny site.

Cory Jim of Empowered Presentations, Hawaii posted this online presentation about Yancey Unequivocally‘s Ignite presentation on Indezine’s PowerPoint and Presenting Stuff LinkedIn group. Yancey delivered the presentation so well–she certainly must have practiced many times to be so much in sync with all her slides. Thanks for putting this up, Cory and Yancey.
