Create a Conversation, Not a Presentation

Create a Conversation, Not a Presentation | Teaching Business Presentations in a Business Communication Course | Scoop.it

"When I worked as a consultant, I was perennially guilty of “the great unveil” in presentations—that tendency to want to save key findings for the last moment and then reveal them, expecting a satisfying moment of awe."

Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's insight:

 

"My team and I would work tirelessly to drive to the right answer to an organization’s problem. We’d craft an intricate presentation, perfecting it right up until minutes or hours before a client meeting, and then we’d triumphantly enter the room with a thick stack of hard copy PowerPoint slides, often still warm from the printer."

Want to Make Your Presentation Memorable? Do These 5 Things

 

Want people who hear you speak to remember you long after your presentation is over? Follow my top five rules for success.

 

You're standing at a podium. In front of you is a crowd of friends, peers, and co-workers. Sitting. Staring at you.

 

Your presentation is about to begin.

 

Will your presentation wow the crowd?

 

Or will your presentation be background noise for attendees as they look at their smartphones and laptops?


Via The Learning Factor, Rosário Durão
Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's insight:

"I've done about 40 presentations at conferences around the globe. I've given presentations to crowds of 300 people and audiences of more than 2,500.

 

"When I started giving presentations, I was pretty terrible.

In fact, for a long time I fell victim to the worst speaking mistake possible: kicking off my presentation by introducing myself. Sorry, but nobody who pays to attend an event really wants to hear you talking about how awesome you are.

 

"Today I'm consistently rated among the top one or two speakers at the events where I'm invited to speak."

For Better Presentations, Start with a Villain

For Better Presentations, Start with a Villain | Teaching Business Presentations in a Business Communication Course | Scoop.it
Then add a victim. Then be the hero.
Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's insight:

"Many executives start presentations about products or initiatives with a vague theme statement, often expressed with as much pith as a puff of smoke: 'We have a new focus on customer satisfaction,' or 'Our current strategic goals are execution and innovation.' But this approach is not only lacking but lackluster."

 

"Instead of starting with theme, you can make your story more compelling by focusing on its three main actors: the villain, the victim, and the hero."

Daniel Watson's curator insight, September 10, 2015 12:19 AM


Presentations can make or break any pitch for new business or business finance, so it is really important, that your presentations really sing. As most business owners do not possess the skills to create a beautiful presentation, they often fall far short of what is ideal, in handling important business situations. To improve, a business owner must either outsource, or develop their own skills. Those looking to develop their own skills, will find these 5 video tutorials a great starting point.

Are You Going to Adopt a Modern "Essentials" Textbook?


Are you going to adopt a modern “Essentials” textbook with extensive integration of mobile communication in every chapter, or are you going to saddle your students with a commonly adopted “Essentials” text that is stuck in the last decade?


Bovee & Thill's Online Magazines for Business Communication's insight:


Because of complacency and a lack of knowledge about the topic, most business communication textbook authors are ignoring the mobile revolution. In fact, they’re pretending that it doesn’t even exist.

The fact they are the only business communication textbook authors currently writing about mobile tells you everything you need to know about which author team conscientiously revises its books and keeps them current.

Protecting Your Presentation from “The Swipe Effect”

Protecting Your Presentation from “The Swipe Effect” | Teaching Business Presentations in a Business Communication Course | Scoop.it

"If you have been tempted to look down at your phone in the middle of a presentation – no matter how relevant the content – you suffer from The Swipe Effect."


Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's insight:

"The Swipe Effect is the influence our phones have on our ability to stay focused in the moment. It is the consequence of our curiosity (or anxiety) about what could be waiting for us: a text, a voicemail, a post – a message of any kind. It is more habit than disinterest. It is what draws us away from the presenter to our mobile devices." . . .
