Nancy Duarte TweetChat Recap: How to Win over an Audience

October 19, 2011 at 5:14 pm PST

On Tuesday October 18, we held a live TweetChat with best-selling author and presentation guru Nancy Duarte, CEO of Duarte Design. (She created the presentation you see in Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth.)

During the hour-long chat, Nancy shared a truckload of sage presentation advice, tips on how to spread ideas, tell stories, and ensure the next time you present, your audience will be truly riveted. Thanks to everyone who participated in the chat and congrats to Cisco partner @CapNetSols who won a signed copy of Nancy’s book Resonate.

If you’d like to watch Nancy’s Virtual Partner Velocity video covering this topic and how to truly resonate with audiences, the replay is here. (And be sure to take the survey after you watch Nancy’s video to get your copy of her most recent book “Resonate” and for your chance to win an iPad 2.)

And now, for a full summary of the TweetChat. (You can also visit our TweetChat room to view the transcript.)

To help facilitate discussion, the @PartnerVelocity Twitter handle asked Nancy 10 prepared questions. There were plenty of great audience questions as well, so for easier reading, those are posted after the Q&A along with Nancy’s Golden Nuggets and tips.

Ready for World IPv6 Day – June 8? Get ready on 6/6 with #IPv6Chat and @CiscoGeeks

In case you’ve been living under a rock, World IPv6 Day is June 8.  Many companies will participate, including Cisco. In fact, we’ve got a full day of festivities planned. From the Running of the IT Admins to the Fire Walking Of Threat Researchers, it should be a fun day.

To answer any last-minute questions and assuage your completely founded anxieties, we’re having an IPv6 TweetChat on June 6. Think of it as a nice way to ease into your morning if you’re on the west coast or a random amusement if you’re elsewhere.

TwitLatin With Bullhorns

What’s a TweetChat? Very simple. If you’re on Twitter, you ask and answer questions and add a hashtag somewhere in your tweet to identify it as part of the conversation. You can keep an eye out for others using this hashtag (via search) and see the flow of the conversation. For this chat use #IPv6Chat.

On the day of the event (June 6 – Monday! At 9-10am PDT), you can follow the conversation with hashtag #IPv6Chat on any of your favorite Twitter clients or directly on Twitter. <http://twitter.com/#!/search/%23IPv6Chat>  We will also be giving away 25 t-shirts to customers who ask questions.  Read the full terms and agreements.

More IPv6

If you’re too excited about IPv6 to wait till June 6, you can check out Cisco’s very own IPv6 page, or review some of the blogs written by my very talented colleagues.
