fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc In fact you are working on one right now... You do presentations.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc 1/3 & you have barely enough time. It’s due tomorrow

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Say you meet me. I’m Matteo by the way...

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc 1/3 I’m part visionary entrepreneur and part presentation freak.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc I have just 10 minutes. I’m also out of time

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc In just 10 minutes together, these are the 10 most useful presentation tips I would give you. Let’s start!

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc 1. Know your audience

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc If you have the time to do one thing, then devote all of it to knowing your audience.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Put yourself in their shoes, imagine what they would want to get from your presentation.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Think about ways to simplify the relationship between your audience and your material.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Over the course of this presentation every tip will come with an example related to exactly this presentation.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Example “My audience is composed by people that - for their work - need to make presentations”

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc For the next tips imagine that you step on the stage...

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc 2. Tell your audience who you are

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Make sure that everyone in the room has understood your name, but also that they are also able to describe who you are.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Example “Hello, I'm Matteo, visionary innovator and entrepreneur”

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc 3. Tell your audience why you are there

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Explain your motivation for presenting, let your unique knowledge and perspective show.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Help your audience understand how passionate you are about what you are going to talk about.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc ...will mean a lot to your audience too. If you care, chances are your presentation...

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Example “Why am I here? Well, I’m a bit of a presentation freak...”

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc 4. Tell your audience why they are there

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Within the first minutes of your presentation provide your audience with a sample of the advantage they will gain by following your presentation till the end.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Show them what they will gain from your presentation and, more importantly, how it will change them.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Example “I bet you have found already something actionable among my tips. Well done!”

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc 5. Develop a story based on the transformation you wish to happen in your audience

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Your presentation should elicit a change in the way they see, feel or relate to your topic.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc If you are not eliciting a change, then you are not providing enough content.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc No change No presentation =

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Example “You are going to get much better at making presentations. Starting now!”

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc 6. Everyone reacts differently

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Every individual in your audience will react in a unique manner. And that’s totally fine!

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Some will just understand, many will reject your ideas, some will be confused, some will look for the the tweetable content, others will be all over your data & research.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc ...at the same time Don’t try to please everyone...

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Example “Not everybody likes lists. These 10 tips are ment for the pragmatists among you”

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc 7. Clearly mark the moment you deliver your most important concept

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc I’m talking about a climax

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Imagine the climax as the summit, the peak, the high point of your narrative, the moment you deliver the most insight, the one concept that is most transformative.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc This is the moment where your audience understands that they have arrived at the core of your idea.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc It’s all down hill from that moment on...

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Your audience knows that this marks also the beginning of the end of the presentation.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Don't disappoint your audience by remaining on stage too long after your main climax.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Example “Let’s check the fuel. We are at tip # 7. Do you already feel like opening PowerPoint and fixing your presentation?”

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc 8. Provide a summary of what you have covered

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Towards the end of your presentation provide a summary, a birds eye view of what you have covered.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc This will help your audience understand your material & aid them in making sense & remembering it.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Example “We climbed the climax and are getting ready for a smooth landing”

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc 9. Provide actionable to do’s

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Let your wisdom show through something actionable, that your audience can apply to their every day life.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc This is your gift to them!

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc You're allowed to end on a call to action, a hope, a wish, a word of wisdom. Make it quick though.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Example “You can apply most of these tips to your presentation, even if your presentation is tomorrow”

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Last but not least...

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc 10. Be comfortable with your material

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Make sure you feel comfortable with your material. If you aren’t it will show and no trick will save you.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Presentations shed a spotlight on you and your abilities. Make sure you are ready.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Structure, design, delivery are good skills. Being knowledgeable about the topic is essential.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Know your stuff.

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Or go back to your desk & learn, learn, learn, learn, learn, learn...

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc Example “I truly am a presentation freak. Does it show?”

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc To summarize

fbbr.co/preshero@matteoc 1. Know your audience 2. Tell your audience who you are 3. Tell them why you’re there 4. Tell them why they are there
