DONT USE INDEX ON YOUR PRESENTATIONS</p></li><li><p>1 Plan your presentationbeforehand</p></li><li><p>1Plan your presentationbeforehand</p><p>Think about what point you want to make before you start dumping information into a PowerPoint file uncontrollably. It's better to create a word file with whatever you want to say, divide your presentation in sections and then get started. This will certainly keep things to the point, while simultaneously saving you a bit of effort later on.</p></li><li><p>SITUATION</p><p>Plan your presentationbeforehand</p><p>PROBLEM OPPORTUNITY</p><p>SOLUTION CALL 2 ACTION</p></li><li><p>2Kill bullet points</p></li><li><p>2Try to create slides with small amounts of text, as listeners are generally not inclined to follow a massive presentation and learn it by heart. However, they will easily remember quotes or short sentences.Kill bullet points</p></li><li><p>BULLETPOINTS ARE FOR SUPER MARKET LISTS</p></li><li><p>33 Use photos</p></li><li><p>3No photos from Google though. Either buy stock photos or use freely provided ones in good quality. A nice picture always gives a bit of extra flair to any presentation. However, do not forget that in case that you do use free photos you have to give credit to their creator.As the saying goes, a picture = 1000 words!Use photos</p></li><li><p>Example</p><p>VS</p></li><li><p>4Differentiation is everything</p></li><li><p>4You surely have seen lots of presentations adorned with amazing pictures. Nonetheless, this doesn't necessarily mean that all of them are good, or that they can keep the audience engaged in the very least. This is mainly because each presentation must come with a story and the proper structure. Think about jokes for example. Each joke has a very specific structure that helps expand the storyline.Differentiation is everything</p></li><li><p>PLAY WITH COLOURS</p><p>Source:</p></li><li><p>Use GOOD fonts</p></li><li><p>Use GOOD fonts</p><p>DIRTY HEADLINE</p><p>futura</p><p>Murray Hills</p></li><li><p>IAM GOOD FONT TOO</p><p>Comic sans</p></li><li><p>IAM GOOD FONT TOO</p><p>Comic sans</p></li><li><p>5Keep your audience at the edge of their seats</p></li><li><p>5Try to structure your presentation in a way that will keep your audience engaged from the beginning till the end. Start by presenting the main subject of your presentation, analyse it and expand it gradually. Dont give everything away at once. Try to keep some of the best bits for the end. Keep your audience at the edge of their seats</p></li><li><p>6 Less is more</p></li><li><p>6You only have 10-30 minutes, so you dont have to say much. Just say the things that matter. Do not include too many slides in your presentation and do not, by any means, use bullet points! Just use rule 1:7:140.Less is more</p></li><li><p>1:7:140</p><p>Source: </p></li><li><p>1:7:140IDEA PER SLIDE</p></li><li><p>1:7:140WORDS PER SLIDE</p></li><li><p>1:7:140CHARACTERS OR LESS</p></li><li><p>7 Rehearse it</p></li><li><p>7No matter how well you think you know your presentation, rehearsing it will help you put things in the right order and get confident. It is imperative that you learn at least the main points by heart. Try not to leave it last minute if you want to make the impression you intended to make from the beginning.REHEARSE IT</p></li><li><p>8Use examples and show some stats </p></li><li><p>THE NUMBERS OF SUCCESSIN JUST 2 YEARS</p><p>5.800.000THATS A LOT OF MONEY</p><p>20.000 reservationsTHATS A LOT OF RESERVATIONS</p><p>8.000 EVENTSRELIABLE ISNT IT?</p></li><li><p>REVENUE GROWTHIn 2 years</p><p>0</p><p>1000000</p><p>2000000</p><p>3000000</p><p>4000000</p><p>5000000</p><p>6000000</p><p>1 2 32014 2015 2016</p></li><li><p>8Always try to use examples. It's much easier for your audience to understand what you want to say through a well placed example and properly presented statistical data, than through tons of theory. In case that you are presenting case studies from previous projects, try to pick the ones you know you can explain and analyse best.
