How stand-up comedy can help you overcome stage fright and make you a better presenter

David Nihill is the co-founder of FunnyBizz Conferences, founder of Comedy for a Spinal Cause and the author of the 5-star rated Udemy course, 7 Comedy Habits to be a Funnier Speaker. In this guest post, he explains how he learned to overcome his fear of public speaking by studying stand-up comedy.

Last year, I found myself in a bit of hot water—a friend roped me into hosting a comedy show that I was organizing, despite the fact that I had a huge fear of public speaking.

Teaching your entire company to use Prezi

Third Way, an innovative think tank and policy agency based in Washington, D.C., recently began switching from slides to Prezi—and they haven’t looked back.

“Our presentation skills were excellent, but our PowerPoints sucked.” Over the course of a long, ongoing conversation about how to improve their presentations, the Third Way team encountered Prezi and immediately were struck by its unique advantages.

How should designers use data?

 

David Gauquelin is Lead Designer at Prezi. In this post, he discusses the advantages and dangers of data-driven design.

Last month, at the Accel Design Conference, I found myself on a panel (1) discussing the relationship between data and design intuition with Bradford Cross, founder & CEO of Prismatic, and Brynn Evans, Lead UX Designer at Google. The question of how designers can use data meaningfully is a very interesting one to me, and it’s very much connected to the day-to-day work my team does at Prezi.

Outage of the Sentry

Prezi recently suffered two site outages that prevented people from accessing their prezis for a total of almost four hours. It caused a lot of people serious problems, embarrassment, and stress. We’re sorry, and we owe everyone not just an apology but also an explanation.

The reason for both outages was our use of a third-party piece of software called Sentry. We were using it for about a month before we had any problems, and the outage that resulted from our usage of it was our fault. Sentry provides us with a valuable service, so much so that we are continuing to use it. For a detailed, technical explanation of what went wrong, you can head to our Engineering Blog to get the full story. Since discovering the root of the problem, we have made the necessary changes to ensure that this kind of outage will never happen again.

To those of you who had important presentations to give while Prezi was down, we offer our sincere apologies. We will do everything we can to ensure that no one using Prezi is ever in such a position again. We’re actually very proud of our track record over the last 18 months, so much so that I’m sharing what we’ve learned from previous outages and everything we do to make sure they don’t happen again at an upcoming conference in Poland. And I’ll be using Prezi, because I believe in all the people who make sure Prezi is always there for you.

Your company’s brand is one of its most important assets when it comes to standing out from the crowd and beating out the competition. In a world where corporations are willing to pay billions for branding rights, it’s not hard to see the value of a powerful brand and the customer loyalty that comes along with it.
