The messaging of an idea... feedback — PART 4
As Renée Cormier and I continue to work our way though "The messaging of an idea" (in an attempt to offer perspective and build discussion to get really good at it) I received a comment on my last blog post.
What I am including here is a video of the presentation, which does move the conversation from simply about the format and structure of a PowerPoint slide deck to something bigger —
- How is the presenter using the slide deck?
- How are his abilities as a speaker?
- What is the utility of using a PowerPoint slide deck for a video
- What about the video itself
- Et cetera...
The Presentation —Having given Renée a heads up that a simple question would be coming her way, I will ask it now — "So Renée (and anyone else for that matter), can I get your thoughts on the presentation and the video, as well as your constructive feedback?"
There is courage in asking for feedback, and it is important to appreciate two things in doing so —
1) There is never any growth without feedback.
2) “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” —Teddy Roosevelt
