Naked presentations in Osaka

If you happen to be in the Osaka area (which I realize is not many of you), I'd love to see you at my presentations in the Apple Store February 9 (and again on February 25). They both start at 7:00pm, and are free, of course. The presentations are called "How to Present Naked (with slides)". The presentations are in English. Below you can see two posters for the events in the form of smaller jpegs. The black one below (left) is the large poster that appears at the entrance of the Apple store. The other poster (right) is one I made myself in iWork (Pages) in just a few minutes. This poster was printed and placed around campus. I often do presentations in Apple Stores in Japan (Tokyo, Nagoya, etc.). Perhaps this summer I'll do some Apple Store presentations in other parts of the world as well. It would be great to meet some of you at an Apple Store in New York or London or Toronto, etc. in future.

Update (2-13-07)
Apple_store The February 9 presentation had a very good feeling about it. Great audience. The audience was a good mix of business people, designers, professors, and college students from all over the world. We should have recorded it. We stayed nearly an hour answering questions and greeting people before finally heading to the local pub for a pint on the way home. One PZ reader even came all the way from Tokyo (about three hours by expensive bullet train) just for the presentation — thanks Jeonghoon!

There is no video but you can see pics from the presentation here, and you can get the gist of the talk from this 5-page handout (750k pdf). Software developer Hiroyuki Shinohara gave his thoughts on the presentation on his blog (in Japanese). There were no chairs available when he arrived so Hiroyuki graciously agreed to take a seat on the floor near the front. Quite cozy; all we needed was a fireplace.

Hope to meet many more PZ readers at my next public talk held at the Apple Store February 25 (Sun) at 7:00pm. See you then!



Dear Garr,

I'd like to come to see you at your presentation in the future.

PS:When you'll come to China? There're lots of apple stores too.

Mohit Chhabra

And please include India too. Apple stores here are few but I am sure we could work something else out.


Please include Hamburg on your list.



Can you publish your presentation onyour site, so that we could take a look?

I mean those of us who are not able to visit your seminar.

Thank you in advance,


Toronto would be tight!


I'll defintely join in the session in Tokyo..any plan??;-)

Will you videotape the presentation and then stream it or You-Tube? Sounds like a great presentation, and Washington DC is soooo boring right now. We need some positive energy, and nekkid-ness seems like the right thing right now (kidding - I mean Naked Presenting)


Hope you come to london soon! I agree it would be cool to see a you tube video meanwhile..

Garr, I think it was Todd Watson (from IBM Texas) who first linked to your blog in one of his posts, and the rest is known.
I used some of your ideas in recent presentations I had, and the responses were great! I Particularly liked your post about where to find quality images... and how to make an image touch your audience's feelings.

I can't join your lecture in Japan (although god knows I'd like to), but I'd love to attend one of your future seminars. If you ever come to Israel - let me know. Don't think we have an Apple store here, but there are other gadgets stores here, and the 2nd largest hi-tech industry (after the US), with over 3,000 companies.

Thanks again for all your insights.

Garr, if you do come to Toronto, I beg of you to do it before the middle of June! We are moving to southwestern Manitoba soon thereafter, and I'd quite enjoy meeting you. There are 2 Apple Stores from which to choose here. :)

Bill Kinnon

Toronto could definitely use some Presentation Zen.

Jed Christiansen

Hello, Garr.

I'm a long-time fan of your site, and would absolutely love to hear you speak in London! Please post whenever you do those kind of events, and I think you might be surprised by the turnout! (I can guarantee that I'll be bringing anyone and everyone I can to a London event.)


Garr, is that picture really you? I would LOVE to see you present NAKED!! Hit me up, guy.

I am a very interested reader of your blog, transferring many hints into the german context (as pastor of a church! Very inspiring for my. My vision: a christian church with designfactor:-).
If your are coming to Germany, welcome!
