How do we make our presentations……….. Memorable Compelling Effective body language and voice Visual Confidence Engaging
Why effective presentation skills? “As soon as you move one step from the bottom, your effectiveness depends on your ability to reach others through the spoken and written word” Peter Drucker
What may have led to this?
Impactful Presentations - Tips • Why does it matter? • How do I grab their attention? E.g. tell a story, Joke • How does it relate to the audience (WIIFM) significance • Convincing • Memorable • Scalable Structure • Use visuals whenever possible • 1 point per slide • Few matching colors and fonts Simplicity • Present it loud • Get feedback • Check room and equipment Rehearsal
Significance Can’t find meaning or Have no passion for it? Don’t Present
Structure How you place the building blocks of your story Ensure its Convincing, memorable, scalable
Structure • Tell them what you are going to tell them Memorable opening • Tell them Body • Tell them what you have told them Conclusion
Is it that simple to be simple?
Simplicity Inform me with less text more imagery/Visuals
Rehearsal Presentation As I said blah, blah blah……….. Slow down! Practice isn’t the thing you do once you’re good. It’s the thing you do that makes you good.
