Presento Mori - Nine presentation principles that could save your life

Presento Mori - the new keynote by Marcus John Henry Brown.

It's the night before that big presentation, and you can't get to sleep. You're worried. Have you prepared your slides properly? Is the storyline on point? Will you make a fool of yourself? Will they see that you're a corporate impostor? Why do you constantly worry so much about presenting? Why does this always happen the night before you pitch?

Sound familiar?

Well, here's the good news: it doesn't have to be like that. No, anyone can get a good night's sleep, deliver a brilliant presentation, control their impostor syndrome, and get a grip on their Glossophobia, and Presento Mori shows you how. 

Nine presentation principles that could save your life.

One June night, the performance artist Marcus John Henry Brown was rushed into the hospital with severe chest pains. It was a warning shot that forced him to reconsider the way he was living and what had caused the stress that put him in the hospital in the first place: a PowerPoint presentation. What started out as a warning shot turned into nine presentation principles and a brand new keynote for your corporate event, all hands or conference. 

Lessons for you, your business, your audience and your event
