Over the past three days, I’ve posted 3 blog posts with Presentation Ninja Tricks, and I’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback on it – thank you :)
However, as Dennis B. Petersen pointed out to me, my posts, as any other he has read about presentation skills, are primarily focused on presentations for larger audiences. But, Dennis asked me, where are the tips for presentations with very limited audiences such as a meeting between a consultant and client, or a daily presentation in an organization? Presentations that to a great extent also function as a direct delivery of information and documentation?

In the two previous posts, I’ve shared with you my Presentation Ninja Tricks on the first two phases of creating a presentation, Plan and Produce. Now it’s time to look at the final phase, Perform.

Last year, when my colleagues and I visited Brighton for Flash on the Beach, I had a particularly lousy food experience at Pinocchio on New Road.

I love usability testing. There is something extremely rewarding and challenging about interacting with actual users who will show you what works and what doesn’t.
And so, I was very excited to hear the last talk at the Future of Webdesign, the amazing conference I participated in recently. The talk was by Dan Rubin – and it absolutely blew me away. I had never thought to approach usability testing this way, so I’m very excited to share my epiphany with you.

Dan Rubin – Blending usability testing with interface design, prototyping and rapid iteration
Dan’s talk was the last one of the conference for me – and he absolutely blew me away. He took us through a project he had been involved with where they had used something called inherent value testing and high fidelity prototypes.

Aral Balkan – the art of emotional design
Aral’s energy on stage is contagious, and it was a true delight to hear his talk.
I can’t summarise everything he talked about (because I was busy listening instead of taking notes :), but in short, what Aral said was:
