The other night, Brian and I attended a seminar on Social Media. It’s one that I had been to before, but Brian had not, and I saw value in going again. I knew that the material was expected to be similar, but the presenter was different this time.
And it showed. What a difference!
In both cases, the presenters were clearly experts in their fields. They each had a wealth of knowledge about the topic. They both spoke clearly, they were animated and easy to understand. There was absolutely nothing wrong with HOW either of them presented the materials. They were both skilled and confident speakers and virtually all the same information was there...and yet, given my experience with the original presenter, the second presentation paled in comparison. The impact was dramatically different.
