Overview

When we learn to present naked, we reach our audiences by communicating the essence of the message, stripping away all that is unnecessary and embracing the ideas of simplicity, clarity, honesty, integrity, and passion. If "slideware" is used, the slides never steal the show or rise above serving a strong but simple supportive role. The ideas in the presentation may or may not be radical, earth shattering, or new, but there is freshness to the approach and content that makes a lasting impression. In this invaluable resource from the author for the best-selling books Presentation Zen and Presentation Zen Design, you will discover how to get to the core of your message and deliver presentations that are as natural as they are memorable. Whether you are just in the planning stages or need advice for a talk that begins in an hour, you'll find wisdom in The Naked Presenter that you can use to connect deeply with your audience and deliver a great presentation.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“ Many books about presentation delivery cover simple topics like eye contact and gestures. Garr’s book goes much deeper, highlighting Zen concepts that address meaningful ways to connect credibly with an audience. It’s a must-read for anyone who has to give presentations. ”
Nancy Duarte, CEO of Duarte Design and author of slide:ology: The Art and Science of Creating Great Presentations and Resonate: Present Visual Stories that Transform Audiences

“ I take everything Garr Reynolds says to heart. I don’t read his books, I devour them from the inside out. The Naked Presenter is a book whose time has come. Shedding everything to focus on the audience and the content is the true secret to great presentations. Now, Garr is sharing that secret (and how to do it) with the world. ”
Mitch Joel, President of Twist Image and author of Six Pixels of Separation
