Presentation Pearls

Presentation Tips, Insights and Helpful Resources to Improve Presentation Results

Did you know that a pearl is a valuable gem that isn’t mined. Unlike emeralds, rubies and diamonds which are found in the earth, pearls are produced by living creatures – typically oysters.

The pearl is created by the oyster’s natural defences. A grain of sand intrudes within the creature’s shell. It’s an irritation. The secretions form the pearl around the grain of sand to protect the creature.

Presentation skills share a commonality with pearls. Presentation skills are not found, or inherited. They are developed through training and attention. The growth is layer upon layer because you start with a grain of sand and build upon it. Often, presentation skills are addressed because of an irritation.

The major difference is that presentation skills can continue to be improved while the development of the pearl is ended after harvesting.
