I constantly see video "gurus" telling people to just insert all your script text into PowerPoint slides, read it aloud while recording, and...BAM!...instant video!

 

I've always contended that this is a questionable strategy at best for delivering a visual message. Here is one of the leading presentation experts on the planet explaining part of my contention.

The "Attention Method" for Effective PowerPoint Presentations

The "Attention Method" for Effective PowerPoint Presentations | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
This is a method of constructing effective PowerPoint presentations in a way that helps your audience pay attention to you and understand your ideas more fully. With Attention Method, the slides are designed to add power, emphasis, and deeper understanding to your well-scripted speech. You flip slides often so that, at any given time, your slides always support only what you're saying and contain no distracting information. Instead of one slide with several bullets, each slide should contain one idea expressed in vibrant images and minimalistic text.

You Are No Longer Allowed To Present

You Are No Longer Allowed To Present | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

Here are some reasons why your presentations are BAD!   We know that so many of you use programs like PowerPoint or Prezi because they have been around for a while, and it is what you know, but change is not always a bad thing, especially if that change can lead to presentations beyond your wildest imagination.

Gavin Meikle's curator insight, March 10, 6:02 AM

A (mostly) great post with some sound advice for better presentations.  Here's my take on it .....
 

Design

At the risk of upsetting all those wonderful Graphic Designers out there, I would recommend going easy on the fancy designs.   They are not essential.  What is essential  is a clear simple strategy with one idea per slide, minimal text, no bullet points (yes I mean it!) and clear simple pictures, graphs and diagrams to illustrate your verbal messages.
 

Content
Developing compelling content is important but try to avoid using a script when you deliver.    reading scripts leads to flat, lifeless delivery and makes it much harder to respond, "on the fly2 to your audience.  Instead use  a few cue cards with key points only or a simple mind map.  Either will keep you on track without restricting your ability to improvise in response to audience reaction.

 

Story Telling
To true. Stories are much more engaging that lists of facts or endless graphs.  Stories also create emotional engagement which is needed if you want the audience to be motivated to do something after the presentation. 

 

Humour
Yes it is powerful but it is risky too.   Telling jokes rarely works and can lead to all sorts of problems (poor timing, inappropriate content etc.)  Instead use gentle self deprecating humour.  Be willing to poke a little fun at yourself and the audience will warm to you. 

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, March 10, 10:43 AM

My take on good presentations:  1) Story 2) Content: Restrain your left brain 3) Design: the experience 4) Humor (optional).  Presenting starts with story and uses the visual design to reinforce and add new dimensions to your message. Design the experience, not the slides. Humor works if it's actually funny--not contrived. I've seen a lot that doesn't. Humor is optional.  If it comes naturally, great.  Focusing on story and image is mandatory.  Use serious restraint with putting words on your slides.  Words are processed by the rational, 'left-brain' which takes your audience out of any emotional experience and into thinking and linear processing.  Take them on a journey, don't give them a lecture.  If you feel compelled to give your audience words, give them a handout when you're done. 

rwestby's curator insight, March 10, 11:36 AM

PowToon, a Chrome Web App (in Beta) is a great presentation tool that can animate and jazz up even the most gray of presentations. Upgrades are available for those who like  a bit extra.

Startup & Life Tips From Warren Buffet

Startup & Life Tips From Warren Buffet | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it

There are reasons other than sheer brillance Warren Buffet has way more money than most. He lives by a strict code and these tips share some of that code. Great #startup and life tips. 

My favorites are learning to spend only AFTER saving (hard lesson that one) and the tip about honesty being expensive so don't expect it from "cheap people". I suspect Warren means "cheap" in much more than the monetary sense.
