Creative Critical Thinking

  • Created a presentation for the San Francisco Waldorf High School today
  • Students were focused, noises were shushed away, flowers received
  • Happy to see high school teachers again
  • Used personal examples to encourage students to continue the Waldorf way
  • Used business, social science real life examples
  • Hardest presentation ever, because students are diverse, talented but usually can’t sit still for half an hour, but everyone was a great listener today
  • 1st school assembly since winter break, I am honored

Resources

  1. Picture for having perspective: http://bigappetites.net/
  2. Prius example about conspicuous consumption from the Freakonomics radio show
  3. Mega brand LVMH, basic info from Wikipedia and LVMH annual report

Also recommended for students: TED talk as examples for creative and high impact presentation techniques. One of my favorite episodes: advice from an ad man about a press of a button being the best interface.
