Presentation training   may the force be with you Presentation training may the force be with you Presentation Transcript

  • Telling the story of the greatest story ever told
  • Presentations are about story telling
  • Heroes
  • Villains
  • Cool, cool characters
  • Narrative, tone, pace and salience
  • Start with the promise of a great story
  • A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away
  • Keep the story simple
  • Evil Empire rules the galaxy. Rebels fight them. Princess Leia is kidnapped by Darth Vader. Farm boy called Luke Skywalker joins rebels. Luke meets two droids, C-3PO and R-2D2, who lead him to Obi-Wan Kenobi. They hire smuggler Han Solo and Wookie sidekick, Chewbacca and set out to rescue the Princess. Luke's journey to becoming a Jedi Knight begins, just like his supposedly murdered father, Anakin Skywalker.
  • Create chapters that hold the presentation together and move us to the next scene
  • End scenes by concluding or teasing what could happen next
  • Get the basics right
  • Never tell them what you are going to tell them
  • Orphaned son... Life of drudgery and exile... Called to adventure by a herald... Encounters a protective figure, who supplies the amulets and advice... Enters the adult world.
  • Find a twist
  • Talk with, don’t present at
  • Never add more than is needed
  • Don’t rely on technology
  • Look good
  • Look really good
  • and most importantly
  • Have a single, poignant, memorable, and brilliantly delivered moment that will never be forgotten
  • You can’t practice presentations
  • Do or do not, there is no try
  • May the force be with you
