So, I am reading a random book I picked up on presentation skills… found a well articulated point that agrees with my thinking and is hopefully true:
“You could have great content and know and own your knowledge but struggle to form it through your physical acts of communication.
If your content (knowledge) is good but your form (presentation skills) poor, you have probably been frustratingly overlooked and enraged at the success of hollow presenters (those with good skills but lack true knowledge).
Perhaps it is a sign of the times but I am increasingly noticing that the hollow ones are crumbling and failing while those with content are moving into the forefront as leaders. Let us harness both form and content for power.”
