Amy Tan talks about our inner creativity in this presentation. I thought this would be beneficial for a good presentation to review, but also to get ideas on how to be creative in our life, which can help when you’re putting together your presentations. Amy had personal stories to keep the audiences attention as well as humorous slides. She was personable and even gave personal accounts as to past experiences in her life. This presentation is one to keep in mind when you begin on yours. She also talks about our inner creativity and where she believes we get it from. While she does make comments perpetuating the stereotype of her own culture, she still delivers a great presentation. Keep in mind to be mindful of what you say and how you say it. I also noticed that the camera zones in on the audience. They are attentive and genuinely interested in what she has to say. Can you think of ways to be creative and set yourself apart from other presentations? Do you think adding stories and humor is beneficial to a presentation?
