Our first trip was to Martha’s Vineyard via Providence, RI, and Plymouth, MA. Although it was a short stay, we managed to cover a lot of ground on the island. Our favorite spot was The Flying Horses Carousel, to which we made a daily quest. Yes, we caught a few brass rings.
Later this summer we’ll head back to the very familiar lakeside cabin near Hackensack, Minnesota. From that northern location we’ll make a trek up to Winnipeg to see what’s going on in Manitoba. I’m sure that it will be cooler up there.
In the Vineyard I selected three books for the seventh edition of the Presentation Skills Reading list. Hopefully they’ll provide you with some new thoughts and ideas for improving your presentation skills.
Read any one of these books, apply the methods, and you’ll be a much better presenter by the Tuesday after Labor Day. To catch your own brass ring, read all three.
1) Presentations in Action by Jerry Weissman
2) Boring to Bravo by Kristin Arnold
3) Mastery by George Leonard
Have a great summer! Enjoy every precious moment of summertime magic that comes your way.
