About Garr Reynolds and Presentation Zen

Garr Reynolds is a best-selling author, designer and professor based in Japan. He began the Presentation Zen blog in 2005, and published the first edition of the Presentation Zen book in 2008, followed by the highly successful Presentation Zen Design and The Naked Presenter.

Garr’s approach takes lessons and principles from Japanese culture, particularly restraint, simplicity and naturalness, and applies them to typical presentations given in conferences and the workplace. The result is a refreshingly new, more enjoyable and more effective way of presenting.
