Improve your message: Prezi

Back in the 60s, President Kennedy went to Berlin in the middle of the cold war and gave one of the best speeches of his life. That day he said “Two thousand years ago, the proudest boast was “civis Romanus sum. “Today, in the world of freedom, the proudest boast is “Ich bin ein Berliner.” And the crowd went freaking wild!

The problem is that, “Ich bin ein Berliner” actually  means “I am a jelly donut.” What he meant to say was “Ich bin Berliner” which means “I am a Berliner.” Like my favorite comedian Eddie Izzard says, 70% of how you look, 20% of how you sound, only 10% is what you say.  If we take a lesson from this story, is that is not only important to have a strong message, but also being able to present it confidently to create a real impact. This is why today I am going to introduce you to Prezi.

Here is an example of a Prezi that I used for a job interview.

Prezi is a free alternative to Powerpoint. It is a free tool to create beautiful presentations helping you enhance your message. Prezi basically provides you with a frame where you can layout your message and interconnect it the way you want. From school presentations to business pitches. Prezi offers a new creative way to present information. The cool movements and excellent design makes it a great tool for people that is looking to do things differently. It is hosted online so you can save, share and open your work anywhere. It has tons of pre-designed templates to choose from, helping to create a message that sticks.

Are you ready to tell everybody that you are a confident doughnut?
