Think about the last great presentation you saw. What made it great?
It probably wasn’t the slides. Even though PowerPoint is the first thing that many of us think of when we hear the word “presentation,” slides are rarely what makes a talk successful. Chances are that what impressed you about any presentation you admire had something to do with the the way the speaker engaged you and the rest of their audience. Were they entertaining? Passionate? Did they tell a great story? Presentations that do any of these things are much more likely to both memorable and persuasive.
At BulletProof Presentations we believe that anyone who makes the effort can be a better presenter. The key is finding the right strategy for dealing with each specific audience. It’s this human element—not the supporting documents—that makes or breaks any presentation. In a live presentation we can use our presence to charm, coerce, awe, amuse, threaten or inspire an audience into sharing our point of view. Which is why you, not your slides, need to be the focus of your presentations.
Choose to be a better presenter and take a step towards making yourself BulletProof.
