Presentation Zen: Before & After: A valuable resource for presenters

by Scott Smith

Recently, John began to make short, well-made videos which feature a simple principle and practical tips. As Dean Laffan in Australia reminded me this week, John’s videos are actually good examples of how short teaching videos like this should be produced. As Dean said in his note to me, these videos are good because (1) They are short and sweet, (2) Have good production values, (3) Are well thought out and professionally edited, and (4) Are not overly slick. John’s style in front of the camera is very natural and down to earth. Two of John’s recent videos appear below—let’s hope he makes many more.
