  • Synopsis:When giving the vision, the most effective way to deliver a presentation is to keep the messages consistent but then personalize the material with stories and anecdotes.Do: Welcome, set expectations, gather/reconfirm pain points and summarizeDon’t: Tell the whole story on the first slide Talk on and on about the companyGet into product detail – this is a vision-first/product-second presentation approachSuggested approach:Welcome them [if not done before: introduce yourself; have them introduce themselves]Gather summary pain points if you haven’t already. If you have gathered pain points prior to this presentation, then reconfirm a prioritized summary of pain points while on this slide. Things change and this audience may include individuals who have different views of the pain, so always reconfirm the pain before beginning the presentation. This prioritized pain information becomes critical foryour benefit summary later in this deck. Set expectations, such as: Today I want to tell you more about an important and significantly different strategic approach to informing, engaging, and energizing your K12 communities. I also want to share some real case studies of how connected communities are bringing exciting results to school districts across the nation.But before I present a lot more about our strategic solution for connecting your communities, I’d like to take just a few minutes to first overview the vision of our company and the vision behind our solutions. I think that these few minutes will be useful for you to see why we have taken a different, and certainly a more strategic approach to help you eliminate challenges and risks associated with continuing to work with a disconnected community—to whatever extent it exists within your district.
