A Speakers Preparation is KEY to a successful event, so here’s a bit of Advice: your Preparation might read something like this: Use this or that software, Powerpoint, Keynote or something?? to create your slides & images. But be careful of the number of Words per slide, not too many it can be confusing… maybe not text at all, only an image…or maybe an image with some text… that’s cool!, and the advice continues, it always continues as does the confusion it leaves behind, well…
How about your Font size & Color? That too can make a big difference. Then there’s bullet-points: should you use them or maybe not?? … and if you do use them, how many per slide? and what kind of Bullet: star, dot, square? should it be the same color as the font…or not? Bigger, smaller…It gets pretty crazy after awhile and if it’s true that a Speakers Preparation really is key, is the place where it all begins and finally comes together, then Why are so many Presentations considered Dreadful by the Audience?
Well, sure there’s a library of guide books and websites with tons of “free” information available to you. But after all is said-and-done, generally, most Powerpoint shows fail to inspire, that’s correct. Powerpoint Presentations not only fail to inspire, they regularly are written off by the audience as a waste of time. Failing to inspire support, to make the sale, and not changing opinions. Yikes!!
So, With that in mind, you’d better get good at your image/video Presentation, or as a creative alternative, I thought I’d toss in this interesting idea for you to consider:
Instead of preparing your next Presentation as a Presentation,
Prepare it as You would prepare a Speech. Hmmm, interesting idea,
but How does that work?
