Book Excerpts: Relational Presentation

Created: Saturday, May 12, 2007, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 6:49 am



This book extract is from Relational Presentation: A Visually Interactive Approach by Robert Lane, a book describes all aspects of a presentation style known as Relational Presentation.

Relational Presentation methods completely change the way speakers use presentation software such as PowerPoint. With this approach, a presenter does not simply advance from slide-to-slide, or bullet point-to-bullet point, as is the case with standard performances. Instead, he or she has dynamic access to potentially thousands of slides, any of which can be displayed at any time, in any order, within seconds.

  • It’s good to see this book published. Indezine readers my be interested to hear of a great experience I had presenting after organising my slides into a Relational Presentation network as taught by Robert Lane.

    I was faced with the classic presenter’s nightmare: I was the last presenter of the morning and my time had been squeezed down from 40 to 30 minutes. Moreover, one of the topics I’d planned to talk about—the benefits of home healthcare technologies—had been well covered by previous speakers.

    However, in his opening remarks the conference chairman had mentioned the issue of ethical considerations in this field, and no-one had touched on them so far. When I got to the point where I would have covered the benefits I said to the audience “Look, I can talk about benefits, but would you rather I talked about the ethical issues instead?”

    At that point the chairman leaped to his feet, turned to the audience and asked them to vote!

    They wanted ‘ethics’ so, thanks to having some material on that in my presentation network, I switched topics. Not only that, but I finished right on time for lunch, which was much appreciated!
