Great presentations use insights from myths and movies in several ways:
/1 There’s a likeable yet flawed hero attending your presentation– this is your presentation audience.
/2 A presentation should take the audience on a journey from their ordinary world into your special world gaining new insights and skills from your special world.
/3 The audience makes a conscious decision to cross the threshold into your world; they are not forced.
/4 The audience will resist adopting your point of view and will point out obstacles and road blocks.
/5 The audience needs to change on the inside before they’ll change on the outside. In other words, they need to alter their perception internally before they change the way they act.
Crossing the threshold is an important moment, because it signals that the hero is making a commitment. Your presentation must take them across the threshold from changing their thinking to changing their actions.
