There’s no shortage of coverage about how Australians pay more for the exact same product compared to their US counterparts. We know, for example, that tech giants (like Apple and Microsoft) overcharge Australians for hardware. We also pay more for downloads. And if you look outside of tech, Australians pay more than Americans for just about anything…

How-To Conquer Short Attention Spans During Presentations

How-To Conquer Short Attention Spans During Presentations | General Business | Scoop.it
Being compared to a goldfish is not a good thing. Goldfish are given away in plastic bags in exchange for pocket change at fairs. If your new pet goldfish dies, most people would suggest flushing it down the toilet, or tossing it in the trash. Kinda sad, huh? The story gets even sadder when you consider that in some situations the human mind is inferior to the mind of a common goldfish, at least in regards to attention span.

Despite occasional inferiority to a goldfish, the human brain is a powerful organ capable of completing complex tasks that require enormous amounts of focus. Thus, if your presentation does not inspire your audience to stretch their attention spans beyond the limits of a small fish, it is your fault. Don’t place blame on modern lifestyle habits, or technology. Take responsibility for keeping the audience engaged during your presentation. Use these 5 tips to connect with your audience members, and expand their attention spans to the length of your talk.

Here's some ideas to make your presentations engaging.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, January 12, 2015 4:39 AM

Oh, I guess, even the poerpoint presentations do become tedious and boring after some time. This might happen when they are used too frequently and are not planned really well. In many cases presentations should be backed up with questionnaires, feed back forms and even exit tickets. And bring about frequent breaks to pull the bored ones back to life! Also, remember the rule of the eight minute attention span. Mix your presentation with energisers, disussions, and brain storming sessions! I have known of teachers themselves who soon began to travel to the land of the nod during a presentation that went on and on. Thankfully the presenter made use of energisers and a Q & A session to bring everyone back!

17 Fantastic Infographic Generators

17 Fantastic Infographic Generators | General Business | Scoop.it

Data is crucial. However, displaying a chunk of plain data can be monotonous. Infographics visualize plain data and make it visually more appealing. Data turned into infographic has a higher potential to go viral and be effective. While many of us are designers who can design amazing infographs, Infographic Generators can come in handy to Designers and non-designers alike. They can be a time saving resource.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, January 15, 2015 1:48 AM

Strategic planning is of great importance in the classroom too. Both teachers and students need to plan their work. With the teacher it is about planning for the whole year, and for the student it could be about planning for his or her research paper for the term. In all cases, planning continues to be a factor that can spell success or failure! While, no doubt this article is aimed at the business world, I see its relevance in Education too!

Darilyn Evans's curator insight, January 15, 2015 3:24 AM

A first step in benefits realisation is being sure of what we are trying to achieve.  This article is useful in giving a step-by-step process for creating a strategic vision that doesn't end up as some generic, jargon-filled statement that is uninspiring to staff and clients alike.

Elías Manuel Sánchez Castañeda's curator insight, January 15, 2015 3:40 PM

Strategic planning must give three products:
1. Address: Define which should be directed towards the organization (Vision, Vision and Values).
2. Focus: In what ways the organization (objectives and goals) will concentrate.
3. Alignment: Align all resources (financial, material and human) of the company.
