Advancements in the field of neuroscience and cognitive psychology have yielded some startling discoveries about how our brains operate.  And yet we seem to neglect this information when we present.  We still cling to old methods.
But the way we consume information has changed.  We no longer have to sit at the foot of the oracle and learn on their terms.  Smart devices and the internet allow us to get what we want, where we want, from whom we want, whenever we want.
If the way we consume information has change so dramatically, shouldn’t we adapt the way we present as well?
My research is a multidisciplinary dive into the art, science, technology and biology of critical presentations; presentations where there are consequences for failure.

 

These scenarios when life, liberty or lots of money is at stake include:
  • Pitching an idea, product, service or a business
  • Executive or military briefings
  • Jury Trials
  • Conversations in a cockpit
  • Conversations in an operating room
See the 160+ experts consulted.

Here are some of the over 150 experts I have consulted.   If presentations are critical to you, your profession or your organization and you are at the pinnacle of your profession, I’d love to hear what you have to say.
