I think "presentation" is too limiting a term. "Communication" is better. While a presentation involves a one-sided conversation, communication implies a bi-directional dialogue.
I think it takes the same (or even more) skill to convey concepts in written form. When you're writing you don't have access to those handy animations that we know and love and you can't convey ideas using your physical demeanor. You are forced to be more precise with your choice of words.
Whether you are making a presentation in front of a live audience or writing an article in your local newspaper, you face the same issues:
1. Getting their attention
2. Keeping their attention
3. Conveying your message
In an effort to prove my point, or actually 52 of them, I am writing a book that will be self-published shortly. If you would like to take a sneak peak, you can download the attached file which has the cover and content from Chapter 2.
