Why Bad Presentations Happen to Good Causes

Andy Goodman is on two two cool concepts with his new work on "Why Bad Presentations Happen to Good Causes."

1. He is attacking bad nonprofit and advocacy presentations...Defunct Powerpoint Politics.... Andy continues to encourage folks to focus on the stories that stick with people and move away from powerpoint bullets as the compelling tool of the movement.

2. Andy is distributing the research across the web to the nonprofit community.

You may want to read the new book, Why Bad Presentations Happen to Good Causes, but first you have to contribute to the writing of that book. Confused? Here are the details: the book’s author, Andy Goodman, has posted a survey online to capture opinions from people like you on the state of the art of nonprofit presenting — what’s working, what’s not, and why. The survey takes just 10-15 minutes to complete, and once Andy has compiled all the responses, he’ll have the data that will help him write the new book (due out in December 2005).

Take the survey. Get the book when it comes out. (*Andy will send you a free copy of the book as soon as it’s ready as a thank-you for your time. -- This offer is open to full-time staff members of nonprofits and foundations only, and books will be sent free to the first 5,000 respondents to complete the survey. So fill it out today and ensure yourself a copy.)

No more soul sucking presentations! Go Andy Go!
