Denis Francois Gravel was so impressed with what he saw when he attended PechaKucha Night in Quebec Vol. 2 earlier this month that it pushed him to post a few observations on the "speaking lessons" to learn from seeing a great PechaKucha presentation. We usually aren't so crazy about "guides" on how to give a PKN presentation -- for us, it's really all about being yourself -- but it's certainly hard not to agree with what Denis has to say. In short, be natural, be yourself, be enthousiastic, be proud, be solid, be smiling, and yes, be funny.

This harrowing real-life story is worth a listen to be sure. In today's Presentation of the Day, "Turnaround" from PKN Louisville Vol. 7, we hear of Aubrey Williams' young life growing up in poverty. When he was 14 he began selling cocaine to make money. He was later caught and jailed, but continued his ways when he got out. It took a gunshot to turn his life around.
