A presentation is not about the content or about you – it’s about your audience. Your job as a presenter is to take your audience to a place where they know about your topic, understand it and act on it. Presenting for Geeks will show you how to achieve this.

Check out our excerpt from the book on

“When you are familiar with a topic, it can be very hard to imagine not knowing all about it and seeing things from the perspective of someone who‘s new to the topic. Speakers often assume that the audience already has some knowledge of the topic, and as a result they end up speaking about a specialised issue which will go over the audience‘s head. This effect is known as The Curse of Knowledge, you need to overcome it in order to deliver an effective presentation. To overcome The Curse of Knowledge, you can adapt a trick that is normally used for problem solving.”
