At today’s Geese meeting, Our Educational Coordinator, Adam Engel of Prime Title and Escrow, helped us all learn how to give better presentations. The tips come from the article “12 Life Lessons From Mathematician and Philospher Gian-Carlo Rota.” Here are a few, but click the link above for the full article.
Every lecture should make only one point
Never run over time
Relate to your audience
Give people something to take home
Try some of these for your next presentation!

At a recent Geese meeting, Our Educational Coordinator, Adam Engel of Prime Title and Escrow, discussed a post from Leo Babauta on Zen Habits, Time Management Tips for Top Performers. With endless emails and other distractions, it’s easy to fall down several rabbit-holes during your workday. The article reminds us to:
Focus on the things that matter. Clear everything else away, and don’t act on the urges to put off the important stuff.
Notice when you’re turning away from the high-impact tasks, and train yourself to turn towards it instead.
Batch the smaller stuff (like email and messages) and give that some time later in the day to focus, if that’s important to your work.
Train yourself to focus, and train yourself to always know what you should focus on.
And then connect to why it’s meaningful.
