Making the Complex Simple

Jim reflects on one young “presenter” who had an incredible knack for making the complex seem pretty simple. So simple in fact, that Jim and a few family members made some purchases they would quickly regret.

Making the complex seem simple is a very compelling attribute for communicators of just about any kind these days. Maybe because our lives are already complicated enough, but perhaps it also has something to do with the fact that so many of the presentations we sit though seem to have a way of making simple ideas harder to grasp or the complex seem even more complex.

Check out this month’s video blog for four simple ways to drive the complexity out of your next presentation…

    Thanks Jim. Great tip about creating the last slide 1st! I’ll try to adopt that as a new habit.

    Hi Craig. Yea – it seems like that last slide is almost an after thought. Presenters create everything else and then scramble to figure out how to sum up 60-minutes of talk time. I think that’s why we see so many summary slides that have so much content on them. There simply wasn’t a clear end game at the start. Thanks for the note! jim
