There are several books that discuss the issues of presenting information in various ways, some of which do an excellent job for example Cliff Atkinson's Beyond Bullet Points, but Presentation Zen takes the reader to another level when it comes to understanding the nature of presenting one's message.

Reynolds summarises current literature on the topic and gets you thinking about why your key point(s) matter and how we can go about ensuring that the audience, in this case our students, are engaged, want to continue to listen or discuss and that they remember what your message is all about. Presenation Zen encourages the reader to become more creative and, something which we feel is essential, shows us as professionals how we can teach our students to become inspirational and thoughtful communicators.

When we deliver INSET or workshops we always use Garr Reynold's ideas and his theory behind a successful presentation.
