Quotes for Public Speakers (No. 72) – Nancy Duarte

Nancy Duarte – American Graphic Designer and Author of “Resonate” and “Slide:ology”

“It takes a lot of work to breathe life into an idea. Creating an interesting presentation requires a more thoughtful process than throwing together the blather that we’ve come to call a presentation today. Spending energy to understand the audience and carefully crafting a message that resonates with them means making a commitment of time and discipline to the process.”

      Hi Fred, she certainly did. I am in the middle of her new book, “Resonate”, and it is great. Watch for a book review here in the not-too-distant future.

      Thanks for the comment and all the best for 2011.
