A good presentation is not about you

 Feb 03, 2017

A good presentation is prepared, organised and, unlike Dilbert's, well-structured. As a presenter, however, this is not where your focus should be.

The fundamental goal of your presentation should be for your audience to leave the presentation changed. Rather than lecturing your audience, conduct an inclusive presentation where the audience is actively engaged. This not only leverages the groups intelligence, but also keeps them focused on your presentation.

  • Presenting your information as a story
  • Creating dialogue between yourself and the audience

For more information, take a look at New Horizons’ Effective Presentations and Presentation Mastery training courses.
