Section 2: The 5 Principles

The first principle is so important and so overlooked. Why does it matter, and how to apply it to your next presentation.


Why practising restrain is good in presentations? From a Confucian way of saying a great point to avoid squandering a speaking opportunity.


We are visual animals and sight has an amazing role in everything, including communication.


An effective presentation moves the audience. Persuades them and prompt them to some action, Decision making is much more than pure logic as it's known since the the birth of rhetoric.


One of the most difficult task inexperienced presenters face is how to deliver a presentation. It's easy to fall in to traps and disconnect from the audience with a negative impact on the outcome.
