Presenting with Twitter can be challenging. Just about every week a new story of a speaker getting roasted on Twitter makes waves in the blogosphere.
I’ve written a free eBook “How to present with Twitter (and other backchannels)” to help you avoid that fate. There’s no sign up required. Just click and read.
I asked my trusted and expert community to review the book and say what they thought of it:
“Don’t get caught without Olivia Mitchell’s just-in-time guide to the technology, tips and tactics speakers need to navigate the Twitter backchannel when they’re presenting. With steps to take before, during and after your presentation, Mitchell creates a useful path that underscores what it takes to effectively engage a live (and remote) audience today. A must-read.” — Denise Graveline, @dontgetcaught and The Eloquent Woman
Note: There are a lot of clickable hyperlinks in the eBook. You’ll find these easier to use if you download the eBook to your computer (rather than just reading it in your browser). To do this in Windows, right-click the link and then click on “Save link as’ or “Save target as’.
In the eBook I show you:
- The three stages of presenting with Twitter
- Simple steps to take avoid being roasted
- How to build your “Twitter team”
- How to respond to negative tweets
- The top Twitter tools for presenters
- Alternative backchannels to Twitter and when to use them
- How to use Twitter and other backchannels to encourage audience participation.
This eBook will get out-of-date very quickly. For updates click here.
Cliff Atkinson’s book
Cliff Atkinson (author of Beyond Bullet Points) has written a deeper exploration of the impact on Twitter on presenting. His book “The backchannel: How audiences are using Twitter and social media and changing presentations forever” is being released on 30 November and is available to preorder on Amazon now. It’s an ideal companion book to my eBook.
