Board Presentations – beyond bored

Most library directors and their staff have to make board presentations and management presentations regularly. I like this new blog from Cliff Atkinson, the author of Beyond Bullett Points.
The Blog is called Beyond Bullets: People Communicating WIth People. Sounds like he gets it right – right off the bat.
I think about this a lot since I present often to groups of decisionmakers. We also spent a lot of time in the design of Directors Station and the Normative Data Project thinking about how to make plain numbers leap off the page to help libraries infuence the people holding the purse strings. This book and blog has some advice to help with that.
With busy, senior decisionmakers, if you can’t get your argument or justification down to a few PPT’s with strong visuals you’re not half way there yet!

    (By the way, I’d like to throw some kudos your way for your recent Internet Librarian closing keynote: “Competing with Google: Library Strategies.” You pulled together a great deal of information and successfully presented it in a very engaging and entertaining manner.)
