Looks like the webinar is over! But, we have the replay and are happy to share!
Effective Presentations do more than inform; they inspire, motivate, and entertain. Unfortunately, monotone speeches, boring powerpoints and redundant flip-charts are still too frequent! The purpose of a presentation is to "make a sale" whether you're selling your boss an idea, or your department the plan of action, or the board a new strategy - you're still aiming at convincing your audience to engage with the data and leave the room with more than they had when they entered. How many presentations have you sat through watching the clock, only to wish the presenter had just emailed the slide deck instead of making you sit through the presentation? While this might SOUND like the MOST boring webinar EVER - if you typically spend more than an hour on your presentation deck, then you need this information.
Influence. Charisma. Persuasion. Qualities and competencies that are frequently overlooked because individuals either don't know how to develop them or they think they already posses them.
Effective presentation skills matter. Effective presentations include a passionate connection to your topic and are facilitated in such a way to engage and connect with the audience. Ineffective presenters forget they are speaking to influence their audience and thus focus more on what matters to them, and thus neglect their audience's needs. The key is learning the right things to focus upon in your presentation and keeping it simple and concentrated on your core message. The core message is the ONE big idea or ONE big concept that runs throughout the presentation; the one take-away you want every audience member to remember.
Unfortunately, most presentations meander and fail to drive home a message worthy of remembering.
There's hope, however! Just as learning to be an effective communicator is a skill that can be learned, developing good presentation skills AND delivering a message that matters is a skill worth developing.
