Go deep rather than go wide

Yesterday, I attended a Presentation Zen webinar. One phrase that struck me was this advice to go deep rather than go wide. In a presentation, there is only so much time to present information, before everyone’s attention collapses.

Rather than try to cover as much ground as possible, it’s much more efficient to focus on a subject and make sure to deliver.

And if you are expected to deliver lots of information on a wide scope, then a written report is a more appropriate medium.

The presentation should be available in slideshare any time soon.
