From the TEDxSummit in April 2012.

  • Strong setup of the big-big screen for slides/vids and the speaker up on screen beside it.
  • Really good use of PowerPoint by Rives, with great callouts and nice big fonts on his screen captures.
  • Well-interspersed flat images, text, and moving images, lots for the eye to enjoy.
  • He very casually (ha!) places himself into the background, adopting the role of narrator for the piece.
  • Lovely full-circle storytelling.
  • He has his material down cold.

Apart from the fact that he’s always a treat to listen to, any presenter could watch Rives here and learn a lot.
