Transcript of Show and Tell: More Visual Presentations

"Still Don't Like You Being Close," Saskia Jansen, Flickr (CC)
"When the right visuals and words are used together, they create a third kind of experience, one that operates by unifying mind and emotion. That's why advertising works, or drama, or film—or the best presentations."

--Nancy Duarte, http://is.gd/dk0ByS
“Slides are slides. Documents are documents. They aren’t the same thing. Attempts to merge them result in what I call the ‘slideument.’”

-- Garr Reynolds, Presentation Zen
