Picture yourself in 10 years…
You’ve been selected to present for a major professional event, high stake for you and your company.
Chances are high that your presentation will be live and online.
It could be broadcasted on many media, corporate social networks, may be on The Next Corporate “WeTube” and directly on personal mobile electronic devices, in your clients’ pockets.
Your presentation will be at the same time global and local, “glocal”. You might even perform from your home office, or from any virtual room, rather than from a big convention center.
You’re likely to reach thousands or more rather than dozens. Their attention span might be even shorter than it is now…They (your audience) will be able to switch and zap you in seconds, too! They will comment and even grade your presentation, publicly chatting while you’re speaking…
You’ll have to be entertaining as well as informative!
It’s likely that the content will be completely free and sharable on web 2.0.
How would it look like? Definitely not like a PowerPoint!

” It’s optimistic, proactive, innovative, and it utilizes social media.”
(Quoted from MillennialGeneration.org)
