5 presentation lessons to learn from Forrest Gump

On the slideshare blog, I came across this interesting posting featuring 5 presentation lessons to learn from Forrest Gump:

1. Understand that presentations are like a box of chocolates
Prepare for your presentation. You never know what you are going to get, what's going to happen.

2. Run, Forrest! Run
Move around in the room. 93% of human communication is nonverbal.

3. Repetition is the Fruit of the Sea

Repeat key aspects of the presentation to help the audience remember what you say.

4. Become a Presentation General
Your presentation is your opportunity to educate and motivate. Take that opportunity.

5. Know What Passion is
Your IQ and knowledge of the material is critical, but your tone and passion for your subject is what your audience will remember.

Try reflecting on the 5 inputs while listening for 2½ minutes to the theme from the movie Forrest Gump.
