Message and Story


  • Keynote speakers emphasize on the importance of Message.
  • What is the key take away from the Keynote Speech?
  • Videos, slides, and humor are entertaining, but without a memorable idea to act upon, a speech is usually not valuable.
  • There is a book called “Naked Presentation”.

[Per Dr. Nyunt Wai] : Message should be more important than Messenger (e.g. media, format). Misuse or overuse of technology has led to a saying, “power corrupts, and PowerPoint corrupts absolutely”.

[Per U Khin Maung Zaw (KMZ, EC76)] : That’s true to some extent. I used to work for a VP who limited no more then one page of PowerPoint in any meetings as presenters/people spent more effort on it than actual discussions.

Story Telling

  • Story Telling is powerful, informative, aspiring, educational, and entertaining.
  • Books, movies, music, arts, history, archaeology, and religion leverage the art of Story Telling.
  • Thanks to my Thin Sayas, Myin Sayas and Kyar Sayas for helping me learn and develop the art of Story Telling.
  • Most of my posts are stories : about my parents, teachers, classmates and colleagues, and lessons learned in school and life.
