In my previous post in which I talked about the principales of the presentationーPIAPA, I said it was mainly based on my experience of performance, education, job, etc. But I realized later that I was actually influenced by my entire life experience, what I saw, heard, read, you name it.
And the first book which came to mind in this regard was “Presentation Zen: Simple Ideas on Presentation Design and Delivery” by Garr Reynolds (2011).
This great book shows us that the good presentation is tied to the concept of Zen (Buddhism) as well as Jazz music. As I am interested in three of them, this book was quite striking, and I think some people might feel that way, so I will share in this post.
What do you think about when you hear the word, “Presentation”? Nowadays, we have many opportunities to present things. In short, presentation is to explain your products (be it tangible or intangible) and it could be through PowerPoint, arts, joke, foods, idea, etc.
From my artistic, educational, academic and professional experience,I came to understand that there are 5 common things which make good or bad presentation (from my perspective), about which I will talk in this entry.
Everybody has different personality. So is the way of presentation.
TED talk can always teach me many things.
Let me introduce 3 different styles of presentation which caught my interest.
(1). Seventeen minutes can change your feeling
Funny, dynamic, simple but so striking talk about change in Education.
“We should refuse to let students fail!”

(2). Innovative way of presentation
There are not so much message in this but the way to present with piano is so intriguing.

(3). Traditional way can still win.
On the contrary, one can entertain and at the same time address important message to audiences by just talking- traditional way of presentation.
Ken Robinson, a famous TED talker, didn’t even use gesture nor walk around the audience. Especially the last 3 minutes, the part of death valley, is breath-taking moment.

I wish I had skills like them to attract people.
But as I said in the beginning, everybody has a different style of presentation.
We just need to elaborate it by learning from others.
At the occasion of an UN joint event , I had a chance to carry out 1 hour long activity for 800+ students (adolescents). I believe the result was quite success, mainly because they enjoyed and learned (so did I!)
Wine! Seafood! party! and hangover!!!
It’s been 3 weeks since I got Santiago Chile. I’m doing internship in UNESCO-Chile office.
I haven’t updated my blog. For what am I writing this? There is no answer to that question yet.
Speaking of an answer, I’m going to do “quiz with colors”
Q: What is that?
A. quiz about color
B. quiz which has three colored answers
C. quiz to look for hidden color
Yes, this is for tomorrow, July 5th-“international environmental day”, which I wouldn’t have known had I not got involved with this internship, let alone thinking about environment seriously.
The quiz is for 800 girls, and this activity is supposed to be creative, which I believe is.
Let’s see if I can contribute myself to saving environment.
The detail will be discovered in the next blog.
