I’ve decided to experiment after reading a post here about a technique called Speed-linking that Darren Rowse used to use. Fundamentally, it’s a round up of links that I have found interesting over the last day or five, and hope that you find interesting too. There isn’t an overall theme, other than presentation skills and public speaking. So here are some post that I’ve read and enjoyed today: Over at Maniactive, Laura Berglis discusses her Presentation Diet Plan.

2009 in Public Relations

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

The year 2009 was a crossroads one for public relations.  Let's look at some of the possible game-changers of 2009: Pepsico announces it's going to sit out the SuperBowl.    Like other professional services, be they law or advertising, the field is being undone by a combo platter of digital technology and client push for cost-efficiency, along with quantifiable results.    The profession and business of PR, as we've known it, may disappear.

Thanksgiving Day - None in 2009

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

For 2009, we need an emergency proclamation putting Thanksgiving Day on hold, at least until 2010.     We gotta do it together on November 26, 2009.    In its place, President Barack Obama and the Congress will announce a National Day of Self-Pity.    We need permission to embrace what we have lost, especially dreams, and acknowledge that our generations may never again experience financial security.    It takes a nation to heal.

Christmas 2009 - Don't Bother

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

The intuitive among us have already decided against any attempt, however feeble, for creating a Christmas in 2009.    That means nada: No decorations, no responding to those chatty holiday letters tucked in red velvet, no baking, and of course no gifts, at least that cost even a few bucks. That embargo doesn't bother me a bit.    Actually, it's a relief and one of the really awesome unintended consequences of the Great Recession.

August 2009 - November 1963

Today's memorial for U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy provided the same transcendence that his brother's did that otherwise shattering November.    The Kennedys have a talent for representing hope.    The widow Victoria communicated the same dignity as did the widow of the our former president.    Sons Ted and Patrick spoke with the voice of their generation rather than echoing the public speaking conventions of their father and two uncles.

PowerPoint design in 2009

Dave Paradi's PowerPoint Blog

Olivia Mitchell has asked a number of experts in the PowerPoint community to comment on what we think 2009 will bring in the area of PowerPoint design. In 2009, presenting effectively will impact your results and ultimately whether you get to keep your job or not. I think we will see a clear split into two camps. One group will be those who can afford and desire the highest end design.
