Sometimes, making the effort to communicate well is almost as good as doing the real thing. Effort gives you instant audience credit.

My wife is a venture capitalist and received her first Prezi investor pitch last week. “This movements make you a bit dizzy, but I must say that the team got points for trying something different”.

For this very short introduction presentation that was competing with an overloaded inbox full of other pitch decks, she was OK with some motion sickness. For a second, longer interaction this is probably not the case.
