Carmine Gallo, author of 10 Simple Secrets of the World’s Greatest Business Communicators wrote a nice feature for BusinessWeek recently. He sent me this link, and it makes great reading. He’s discussing Duarte Design, a design firm based out of Mountain View headed by Nancy Duarte.
Carmine says, “Former Vice-President Al Gore raised the bar on presentation skills with An Inconvenient Truth. But he didn’t do it alone. I wrote a column about the movie when the DVD was released because it demonstrates some very good techniques that we all can apply to our own presentations. At the time, however, I was unaware of the firm behind the presentation: Duarte Design, based in Mountain View, Calif. I sat down recently with one of the firm’s principals, Nancy Duarte, and a group of designers to learn how to turn any presentation into a multimedia powerhouse.”
Carmine adds, “Listening to Duarte’s designers describe the process they take to develop presentations for corporate clients such as Google, Cisco, and Hewlett-Packard, left me with a sense of what’s possible in contemporary storytelling.”
