Another book from my childbirth educator training reading list. Although teaching a course is quite different from giving a business pitch presentation, there were some good reminders throughout this book. For instance, remember that any visual aides or slide show presentations are there to support the presenter, not to state every word of the presentation or serve as a crutch for the presenter. Keep it simple, connect with your audience, and make things clear. I wouldn't say any of this was that new to me--maybe because I've taught before?--but definitely some good reminders. I've fallen into some of the presentation traps he describes, so it was good for me to realize that and think about how my teaching will change now.
