As you know, I make several presentations a year to many different audiences. I just read a great article on Accountingweb from Jack Downton, an entrepreneur in the U.K. about making a good presentation.
I wanted to share the article with you because no matter how many you do there’s always room to tweak your style. We all have to make presentations, whether it is to a room of 200 or 2. It’s always good to see what others are doing, to stay relevant and fresh.
Highlights take into account include:
- PowerPoint – how it dramatically reduces your impact
- What does your audience need to hear?
- It ain’t what you say, it’s the way that you say it
I’m definitely going to be using some of the tips in my next presentation. What have you found to be successful when making presentations? Do you incorporate music or video? Have you found a tried and true way to engage the audience?
