Social Speech - Nancy Duarte

It's hard to say just where Nancy Duarte has had the biggest impact: as the architect of Al Gore's presentation on climate change in An Inconvenient Truth... as the author of two profoundly powerful books on crafting and delivering presentations, slide:ology and Resonate... the co-creator of Duarte Design, a firm that has been redefining the art and science of presentations for nearly a quarter-century...

...or as a pioneer in integrating social media and public speaking around the central driving idea of story.

Our conversation lasts less than 10 minutes, but Nancy packs a lot of insight into

  • how the backchannel changes the balance of power between speaker and audience
  • how speeches can take on a life of their own as social objects
  • how even harsh criticism can make you a better speaker
  • and how dramatic tension and release can lend your next speech the power and impact your ideas have been waiting for.
