Do you have an interesting story to tell?

I read a book "The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs", and as you probably know, Steve Jobs is the CEO of Apple Computers and he's been rated as one of the best presenters in the world (yes... you're thinking "hey, if I had the chance to unveil the iPhone I'd be a great presenter too!).

Anyway, one of the gems in the book was this - the presentation slides are your props in telling the story. They're important, but not anywhere as important as the story you're going to tell. So the morale of the story is to have an interesting story to tell in the first place! The props are just there to support you - not to replace you as the hero of the day.

What has this got to do with the following video? Well... this comedian had a very humble prop, but an interesting story to tell. And that's what matters!
