(mean average age – 27), their occupation – many were students, the omission of PowerPoint’s Zoom feature as a comparison, and the impact on business presenters versus students. Take the time and read the research.  Then look at Dave Paradi’s balanced commentary on LinkedIn.  It dives into the research, its methodology and the results. Share your thoughts with us.

In this month’s “Dishing on Presentations”, I chatted with Prezi’s co-founder and CEO, Peter Arvai while he was on vacation in Sweden, visiting the farm he grew up on. His passion and deep thinking about the medium is clear in our conversation. We talked about how Prezi Next was created with feedback from their 85M users, the thoughtful acquisition of Infogram, the presentation industry and the role of cognitive thinking, and the Harvard study results. Watch it.

A special thank you to both Nolan Haims and Rick Altman for being our first presenters to use ON24, our new webinar platform. One of the fun widgets we tried on Rick’s webinar was Group Chat. This enabled our audience to share their ideas, tips, tricks, and tools with each other. The engagement was buzzing throughout the event. ON24 is changing the way we have approached our presentations and we continue to learn how to maximize the experience for our attendees. Check out Rick’s webinar, Marvelous Makeover: Presentations Edition via YouTube or on demand with ON24.

Don’t miss The Presentation Summit 2017 will be in Clearwater, FL from September 24-27. This is my favorite conference of the year. I learn so much from each of the attendees. As a PXpert subscriber, you can save $75 off the registration by using the code PXpert when you check out.
