That correlation showed up in the research co-authored of Joshua Livnat at QMA, whose parent company is Prudential Financial.  A growth field is the computerized analysis of corporate earnings via natural language processing technology.

When Ego Gets in the Way of a Good Presentation

Professionally Speaking...

I attended an event recently where the presenter was the co-author of a well-known book on a hot business topic. He is also a senior executive in a prestigious firm whose name you would recognize. My expectations were high -- given his obvious expertise, I was counting on some valuable insights as well as an engaging presentation style. But then his ego got in the way.

The one thing the best presenters at SXSW 2010 have in common

Speaking about Presenting

Chris and Julien are co-authors of Trust Agents. Dan Roam is author of Back of the Napkin. Gary Vaynerchuck is the author of Crush It. SXSW is a mega conference/festival for geeks in Austin, Texas, United States. Mega means over 10,000 attendees. I came here to see what’s happening at the geek edge of presenting. To observe the interface between presenting and technology. But what has been most in my face is that the best presenters I saw care!

Free PowerPoint alternatives–OpenOffice.org

PowerPoint Tips

Fun and little known fact: I’m the co-author of OpenOffice.org For Dummies. OpenOffice.org is a Microsoft Office clone, pretty close to Office 2003. It’s open source software that you download and install on your computer, sponsored by Cisco, but also somewhat independent, as open source software tends to be. OpenOffice is a suite and its presentation piece is called Impress. It was written a few years ago and is now out of date, so I won’t give you a link.).

R Bloggers Journalists?

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Robert Scoble, co-author of "Naked Conversations" and former blogger for Microsoft, never contended he was a journalist.    Why would he?    Blogging and traditional journalism are 2 different mediums.      An apt analogy of the difference might be the opinion-editorial writer at THE NEW YORK TIMES and the business feature writer.    The formats and voice are worlds apart.

IM, Text, and Tweet…Oh My!

DeFinis Communications

“It’s showing a real creativity and a firm grasp of the linguistic resources available to them,&# said Derek Denis, a co-author of the study. The overwhelming proliferation of Instant Messaging (IM), text messages, and Twitter has long placed linguists on alert. The seamless incorporation of these media into everyday life and communication is astounding. From 2001 to 2002, text messages leapt from 30 million sent to nearly 1 billion.

Just Wait: No matter how wrong that feels

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

 For example, the co-authors of the book I am ghostwriting hadn't gotten back to me. It's downright counterintutive.   In 21st century capitalism we are programmed to be hypervigilant about possible opportunity and extremely scared that it will be snatched away by whoever or whatever.  So, damn it, don't wait.  But, just waiting might be the most effective way to conduct much of our business.

Now thought leaders and those who strive for that status have myriad options for voicing their point of view - that is, publishing the opinion-editorial (op-ed). At one time, those options were restricted to establishment media such as The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and Newsweek.
