Delivery and visuals

Something you may not know about me: I am big on giving presentations. I like to “design them”:http://www.apple.com/iwork/keynote/, I like to “read about them”:http://www.presentationzen.com/presentationzen/ and I am down on all the “latest methods”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lawrence_Lessig#Lessig_Method_Powerpoints. I have even won some recognition for my presentations. In fact, I used to work at a company that taught international executives how to give effective presentations to multinational audiences. What are some examples of some good presentations? Well, besides “Dick Hardts’s famous Identity 2.0 presentation”:http://www.identity20.com/media/OSCON2005/, I think the “enterprise pitch below”:http://youtube.com/watch?v=SHZDOFEWSUY is pretty good.

About Younghusband

Sir Francis Edward Younghusband (1863-1942) was a British explorer, army officer, military-political officer, and foreign correspondent born in India who led expeditions into Manchuria, Kashgar, and Tibet. He three times tried and failed to scale Mt. Everest and journeyed from China to India, crossing the Gobi desert and the Mustagh Pass (alt. c.19,000 ft/5,791 m) of the Karakoram mountain range in modern day Pakistan. Convinced of Russian designs on British interests in India, Younghusband proactively engaged in the nineteenth century spying and conflict over Central Asia between the British and the Russians known as the Great Game. "Younghusband" is a Canadian who has spent a number of years bouncing back and forth between his home country and Japan. Fluent in Japanese and English with experience in numerous other languages from Spanish to Georgian, Younghusband has travelled throughout Asia. He graduated with an MA from the War Studies Department at the Royal Military College of Canada, where he focussed on the Japanese oil industry and energy security issues. He has recently returned to Canada from Japan, and is working in the technology sector.
