How to Design an Awesome Presentation (Even if You’re Not a Designer) | Design Shack | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

The problem with presentation design is often more about time than actual design. But you must take time in crafting stellar presentations. This might include building a template that you use for presentations or honing in your public speaking skills.


Here, we’ll walk through a few ways to design a great presentation that will engage your audience. (While most of these tips are structured around creating a digital presentation, using software such as PowerPoint, the concepts can also be applied to posterboard style presentations as well.)

Looking forward to trying this out. Could be a handy alternative to Poll Everywhere as it doesn't appear to limit the number of participants.

8 Easy ideas to make your presentation memorable | Mark Schaefer

8 Easy ideas to make your presentation memorable | Mark Schaefer | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Let’s take a step back and consider how people actually learn from a speech. A few years ago, a research team led by Stephen Kosslyn and composed of experts from three universities studied how presenters could improve their public speaking.


They discovered three steps that must occur to make your presentation memorable:

1. Information needs to be Acquired

2. Information needs to be Processed

3. Information needs to be Connected to Knowledge


If there is any disconnect with these steps your presentation will fall flat. Let’s look at each of these steps and come up with some ideas to help you connect with your audience in a lasting and memorable way....

5 Tragic Ways To Lose An Audience Despite Telling Great Stories

5 Tragic Ways To Lose An Audience Despite Telling Great Stories | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

There is plenty of advice out there on how to create a great presentation. Most of it centers on two pretty common pieces of advice:

Tell more stories.Use bigger fonts.

Neither is always easy to do, but the more events I attend – the more I realize a single fact that still manages to surprise me about why people do (or don’t) connect with you as a speaker.

 

Having a good story or great visuals is not enough.

Judith van Praag's comment, March 16, 2013 1:48 PM
Having witnessed two academic lecturers within two days, neither of whom could keep my attention, I'm once again convinced that a great story and no visuals is a no-no for today's audience. Academia looking down on storifying their material miss an opportunity. Looking down on New Media is downright "uneducated". This is a bit beside the point made above, the timing triggers this comment.
