Do you have Faith?
Seven months ago i ended a 20-year streak using presentation slides in 2,000 speeches.
To create a safety net, i choose an intimate group of 40 to speak for the first time without slides. Created a second layer of safety net by preparing six flipcharts to use as visuals.
It went great.
Little did i know four months later, in the most important speech of my life (TEDx Talk), i would take the risk to use zero slides as i was recorded for YouTube for the first time.
Then yesterday, what a joy – no slides for the third time ever.
Long ago while speaking at Disney Institute, i had a premonition that going slide-less would free a speaker to be an artist.
Turns out, after yesterday (and the TEDx Talk), this appears to be true.
The Faith it took to go slide-less yesterday was minimal compared to the TEDx Talk. And now i have Faith to keep moving forward without slides.
