Brilliant Video - Every Presentation Ever: Communication FAIL

How many of the issues in this video have you experienced while in a presentation? Either one you have attended or perhaps one you have given yourself?

I learned of this today via a link in Facebook or Twitter (I can't remember which) pointing me to a post from Mitch Joel back in January titled "How To Do Everything Wrong In A Presentation". It is related to the book Habitudes for Communicators by Dr. Tim Elmore. I've not (yet) looked at this book but I'm definitely intrigued. In his post, Mitch also recommends three other books, one that I have (Presentation Zen) and two others that I've heard high praise about. All of these kind of books will only make you a better presenter... and I've added these to my queue of books to read.

Kudos to Dr. Elmore and his team for coming up with a funny and brilliant way to highlight so many of the issues we unfortunately do experience in presentations.

How many of these have you experienced?

Video: "Behind The TEDTalk 2010" Follows Two Speakers As They Prepare

Recently I was pointed to this great video, Behind The TEDTalk 2010 that follows Sir Ken Robinson as he prepared for his TED talk and Raghava KK as he prepared for his talk. They are two of the many speakers and it's both fun and interesting to see and hear their thoughts as they get ready to present at TED:
