Planning a Presentation without
          Technology
Use analog instead of digital
Brainstorm
Use paper for sketching,
whiteboards and post-its
Slow down the tempo of completion
Busyness kills creativity
Have some
“alone” time to
  be creative
Ask the right
  question
Asking the right
question eliminates
  ineffectiveness,
 wasted time and
       general
   dissatisfaction
Technology does not determine
  presentation effectiveness
Think how to craft the
 story which is the most
effective, memorable and
   appropriate for your
         audience
Wrong Questions to Ask
• How many bullets points per slide
• How many slides per presentation
• Should I use pictures
Questions to ask…
What is my absolute central point?
If the audience remembers one
      thing, what will it be?
Two Questions to remember…
What’s your
  point?
Answer the question by putting
  yourself in the “shoes” of your
audience (answer the question- so
               what?)
Why does it matter?
Make sure the
 core message
  can pass the
“Elevator Test”
Handouts…
Make detailed handouts
Handouts aren’t copies of your slides
3 parts to a presentation…
Slides the audience will see

Handouts that are taken away
Create a document not a “slideument”
A “Slideument” isn’t effective,
       efficient or pretty
Having slides serve as projected
visuals and handouts makes for bad
   visuals and bad documentation
Be different and effective… use a
well written, detailed document
   for your handout and well

Though it requires more effort, the
quality of the visuals and take away
      documents will improve
Benefit of planning well…
If you prepare well, the preparation
process itself should help you know
              your story
“The computer is
    a moron.”
 – Peter Drucker

the early stages, the time when
  your creativity is needed the
 most. Clarity of thinking ...
