I have worked in the presentation and public speaking industry for over 15 years now and people often ask me what makes a great presentation. My response is typical:
"You need to be a great storyteller or make sure you keep your message simple."
"Don't forget to practice your talk 7-8 times before you get in front of the room."
"Make sure you have a compelling call-to-action when concluding your talk."
These are solid suggestions and recommendations I still stand by but I actually never thought about simplifying the material with a simple analogy or illustration. Granted, I have systems and blueprints I have created for my company, Ethos3. But, I have yet to create a workable and impactful analogy until today.

What you choose to include in your ship is your content. The updates, data, significant findings - all...
