Give killer presentations: Think like a writer

Give killer presentations: Think like a writer | Serious Play | Scoop.it
PowerPoint presentations are boring, but don't blame Microsoft. Instead, learn to communicate more effectively by thinking like a writer when you plan your speech.
Ariana Amorim's insight:

Main ideas here:

Most business presentations fail because they're based on bad assumptions. Here are some examples of those assumptions:

The audience cares about you and what you have to say. (They don't.)The audience is thinking about what you're saying. (They're not.)The audience can grasp the details of your complex slides on first exposure. (They can't, and they won't.)

A typical business presentation breaks down communication into subjects like these:

Our company.Our product.Our product's architecture.Our value proposition.

These might be the right categories to discuss if the people in the audience were passionately curious about you and your company. But they're not.

 

A good writer is more likely to break down the parts of communication into the categories that reflect how the human brain works, like these:

Mental images.Stories.Emotions.Information.

Through this article, you can learn more about how you can organize your presentation around these categories.

Powerful (PowerPoint) Presentations: Simply Stated

An effort to eliminate "death by PowerPoint." Good advice here for that guy in your organisation (not you of course) who uses PowerPoint as a crutch ... and a sedative.

 

In my own work with coaching clients, we always look for creative ways to use PowerPoint (or Keynote for Mac users) and whiteboards and flip charts.

Clever ways to use the iPad during a Presentation

iPad storyteller Joe Sabia introduces us to Lothar Meggendorfer, who created a bold technology for storytelling: the pop-up book. Sabia shows how new technology has always helped us tell our own stories, from the walls of caves to his own onstage iPad. Joe's passion is investigating new ways to tell stories -- meshing viral video and new display technologies with old-fashioned narrative.

The difference between a persuasive and an informative presentation

The difference between a persuasive and an informative presentation | Serious Play | Scoop.it

I think that most presentations can be classified as persuasive or informative.These two presentation types can cover quite a range — more entertaining or less, informal or keynote,for example. It's important to know which end of the continuum you need to be on for any given audience, and how to deliver the message correctly.

 

This week I address the differences and similarities between these two basic types of presentation, and share my thoughts on how to change your presentation to match your goals, taking these factors into account: 
* Problem-solution 
* Benefits 
* Emotion 
* Trust 
* Action step

Disarm Your Audience When You Present

Disarm Your Audience When You Present | Serious Play | Scoop.it
Get ready for a fight, though you might not have one.

 

"When you walk into a room as a presenter, it's easy to feel as if you're the central figure: You're up front, and people came to hear you. In reality, though, you're not the star of the show. The audience is. It's in their power to embrace — or reject — your ideas. You're presenting because you need them to change their beliefs or behavior in some way, and people find it hard to change. So expect them to resist. (...)

 

Here are the most common types of resistance and some tips on getting ready for them..."

Your Lesson's First Five Minutes: Make Them Grand

Your Lesson's First Five Minutes: Make Them Grand | Serious Play | Scoop.it

"If you have ever lived with another person and come home to find them in a bad mood, how long did it take you to figure it out? Hours? Minutes? Seconds? Most people say "seconds," and some can tell before they even enter the same room. That's how children feel when they enter your classroom. They can tell within a minute or so whether they will like it or not. Research says within the first five minutes, but I think it’s faster.

 

Once that attitude is formed, it takes a lot to change it. So teachers are best served by following the example of television shows that often make the first five minutes the best of the show so the audience won't change the channel. Great writers write so you will turn the page and not put the book down. Here are three of my favorite ways of beginning lessons to make them grand."

The stunning designs you'll find via this blog post are proof that it's not PowerPoint or Keynote that are to blame for mediocre presentations, but the way they are used. To quote the author: "There’s a certain art to putting together a solid presentation and PowerPoint and Keynote are the primary tools of the trade. The “art” comes into play when you’re trying to set yourself apart; so how you use the tools is of great importance. Often it is the design of the presentation itself that does the trick. In an effort to help you put together a great-looking presentation, here are 28 examples of creative presentation designs using Powerpoint and Keynote."

Teaching Presentation Skills with Ignite

Teaching Presentation Skills with Ignite | Serious Play | Scoop.it

One of the key components of a PBL (project-based learning) project is the 21st-century skill of presentation or communication.  I always struggled with getting quality presentations from my students. I used a variety of teaching techniques and examples, but there is one that I know can really help improve presentation skills: Ignite!

Ariana Amorim's insight:

"Ignite is a specific genre of presentation. An Ignite presenter only has five minutes to speak about the topic, and 20 slides to do so. Every 15 seconds, slides are moved along automatically. The overall purpose of an Ignite session is to empower and excite the audience around a specific subject matter, idea or topic."
