Here's what I like about this article by Nick Morgan -- it focuses on specific ways to engage the audience when you give a presentation.

Yeah! It's rare to find an article that mentions both storytelling (tip #1) and how to bring your audience into your talk.

All the advice shared here is right on. Go ahead and play with these and notice the difference they make!

Your definition to Influence Marketing...!

internetdoctor's curator insight, March 7, 2014 9:35 AM

This is a bit of an over-simplification when it comes to influencers and marketing.  Identification of the influencer is an extremely difficult task, but getting the influencer to influence for you and your business...ahhh...that may friends is the "Holy Grail".

Why Influencer Marketing Will Grow In 2014 -

Why Influencer Marketing Will Grow In 2014 - | Innovative Marketing and Crowdfunding |

In 2014 we can expect to see growth in influencer marketing including investment in identifying influencers and in the growth of outreach strategies to engage such influencers.According to InNetwork around $240m is spent in North America each year on influencer marketing. This is a figure we can expect to grow in 2014, partly because there is so little trust in advertising, but primarily because people trust people.

Surveys have consistently shown a low a level of trust in marketing such as advertisements, with some surveys finding up to 75% people do not believe advertisements. This is in marked contrast to recommendations from other people. The 2011 Neilson survey asked people what sources of information were most relevant to them when seeking information about products and services. The response was overwhelmingly recommendations from people. Over 90% of people felt that recommendations from friends were highly or somewhat relevant to them and 75% felt that consumer opinions posted online were were highly or somewhat relevant to them. This compared to ads on social networks being down at 36%....

To Persuade People, Tell Them a Story

To Persuade People, Tell Them a Story | Innovative Marketing and Crowdfunding |

"Paul Smith had 20 minutes to sell the CEO of Procter & Gamble, and his team of managers, on new market-research techniques for which Mr. Smith's department wanted funding. As associate director of P&G's PG -0.39% market research, Mr. Smith had spent three weeks assembling a concise pitch with more than 30 PowerPoint slides.


On the day of the meeting, CEO A.G. Lafley entered the room, greeted everybody and turned his back to the screen. He then stared intently at Mr. Smith throughout the entire presentation, not once turning to look at a slide.


"I felt like maybe I hadn't done a very good job because he wasn't looking at my slides like everyone else," says Mr. Smith, who also noticed that the other managers didn't seem very engaged. "It didn't occur to me until later that he did that because he was more interested in what I had to say than in what my slides looked like."

Marty Koenig's insight:

Story telling is becoming the #1 thing people and companies are doing. Marketing is King and telling a compelling, personal account is a talent very few people have. Slideware is not the story. YOU are the story. Learn it and apply it. Or het some help.

Un excellent exemple de l'impact du storytelling dans les présentations business

At best, your PPT slides can only SUPPORT your message. The more refined or rarified your audiences get, the more refined or rarified your slide deck needs to get. They're 'paying' for your professional advice/opinion, not your PPT ability.
