1. Post-it note your idea
Try to remember on how you prepared your presentation last time. People usually open their laptop and click right away the last PowerPoint presentation. Then they rearrange the point with new materials, alter the background and add new pictures. Did you do that? If you did then it means you block your creativity. Get the post-it note and write your idea there.
2. Just like billboards
Imagine your presentation is like the billboard. The billboard you saw in the street is always attractive. Each of them shows the colorful and amazing image with only short words. However, the story on the billboard is always interesting. Think about the billboards when you are making the slides. From your post-it note, turn it into great slides.
3. Contrast is great
Once your billboards ready, begin to take the shape. Think about building the contrast in your presentation. Create the image or headline from your post-it note. You can add the story, prop, short video or sounds, question, or exercise which is involved by audience. Moreover, you can find how to build the contrast by yourself or if you are not confident enough you can join the presentation training.
4. Do 7 steps
First, you have to set the scene on the importance of sending the email. Second, begin the journey in which you can focus on the message and the place. Third, you can encounter the obstacle in the reason why you need to go. Fourth, overcome the obstacle. Fifth, resolve the problem. Sixth, make the point which the reason of the importance. The last is to call an action.
5. Present the 3 F’s
The audiences are waiting for 3 things from your presentation. That’s why you have to put those 3 things on your billboards. They are facts, feeling and future. The facts consist of benefits data, features, examples, logical argument and case studies. The feeling is about the humor, stories, anecdotes and surprise. The future is about the belief you give to audiences. That can be learnt by yourself as well.
6. Shout out your voice
As the presenter, your voice is the important aspect. Do exercise to make your voice louder and clear. You can practice by yourself or having training about presentation.
7. Pay attention on their SHIFT
Focus on the SHIFT for your audience. SHIFT stands for success, happiness, insight, freedom and time. Many things can be learnt by you.
