As someone who trains lawyers and accountants in presentation skills, I have never seen dancing as a necessary part of my skill set (and it certainly is not part of my skill set).
Yet you are now being urged by molecular biologist John Bohannon to ‘dance your next presentation’. In this TEDx talk he perfectly illustrates his point by using dancers to help explain some complex scientific concepts.
I certainly agree with him that PowerPoint, at least as it is currently used by most presenters, has had its day. Even if dance is not your thing, John Bohannon’s memorable presentation should make us all stop and think about how best to convey our messages using boldly different approaches.
