Key takeaways:

Stories and analogies are key.

Nehemiah is a big believer in using stories and analogies when presenting. They help to keep the audience engaged and listening until the end. Especially when it comes to technical talks, explaining concepts using analogies is a great way to make something complicated relatable.

Don’t overdo it.

3-5 points during a presentation is what Nehemiah shoots for. More than that, the audience will check out and stop listening, since there’s too much to take in.

Be passionate about what you’re talking about.

Nehemiah believes that an audience can tell if you’re passionate about your message. If you’re not passionate, they won’t listen.
