Hi and welcome! Thanks for stopping by. I’m Dick Knisely.
About Presentation Impact
Over the years I’ve done or participated (too) many technical and marketing presentations. All too many of them weren’t very good and I knew it. But every once in a while I did one or led one that was really good. It frustrated me that I couldn’t figure out what the differences were–why did some have an impact but some didn’t? After years of making hardware & software systems “talk,” that question launched me into a wide-ranging, 2+ year (so far) study program of just what this stuff was all about. It’s been fun, fascinating and there’s a real explosion of recent material available. Now it’s time to do something about this.
I’ve learned a lot and I’m feeling led to share some it. The heart of this is that I’ve become convinced that we need change–no, a revolution–in how we approach and do presentations. They should be and can be powerful vehicles for communication but the overwhelming majority are not.
That needs fixing.
So, my blogs and seminars on the topic are my contribution to starting and feeding that revolution. And I’d love to have you join me !
The presentation revolutionaries need all the help we can get 😉
I’m a systems engineer by trade having come to that via a first career as a communications officer with the Air Force. My second career has been working for several companies as a project technical lead, project and program manager mostly on projects doing software development related to communications and security. The last few years I’ve been working on a government site as a support engineer in an R&D shop helping with a variety of projects all related to, you guessed it, communications and software.
Maybe something related to this presentation stuff will be my third career or it may stay just a strange hobby.
Regardless, it’s fun and I hope you’ll get something useful out of this.
