I had the opportunity to watch Tom Drews, CEO of What Works! speak on The Art of Presenting Online yesterday at the Sales 2.0 conference. His model for building and presenting a story is thought provoking, as is his ‘dance’ (look left). He has a very simple PDF with 28 tips on building a great presentation. One of his points was to use the Steve Jobs approach of using pictures to tell the story, using more slides with less words.
He posted the below picture. It certainly tells a story.
