Description : Dan Roam, the bestselling author of The Back of the Napkin, teaches us how to make extraordinary presentations. We are all natural born presenters. We have ideas to share, voices to share them, and people to share them with. But if we are all capable of giving presentations, why do we find public speaking so hard? Show and Tell provides a simple five-step path to take us from jitters and complexity to confidence and clarity. As presenters, our goal is to educate, entertain, persuade, motivate, and ultimately change our audience. As a top-notch presenter and speaker, Dan Roam has put together a guide full of his tried-and-true visual techniques and the wisdom he has gained from doing award winning presentations like "healthcare reform on napkins". Roam's lively visual style, hand-drawn pictures, and vivid text will help regular people overcome anxiety, carry out a vision, and perform a little magic. Dan Roam is the author of The Back of the Napkin, which was Fast Company's Best Business Book of the Year and BusinessWeek's Innovation and Design Book of the Year, and more recently Blah Blah Blah. He is the founder of Digital Roam, Inc., a management consulting company.
