  43. 43. Tip 19: If your presentation is technical or domain specific, clarify WHO it is meant for and also some disclosures
  44. 44. Who is this meant for? • Entrepreneurs who need guidance on ESOP ideas and policy for their Company. • Employees who need to understand what ESOPs are, and how they work. • People elsewhere in the business ecosystem, who may have questions on ESOPs and its core principles. • Anyone interested in learning about a very interesting and valuable capital idea that has been responsible for creating massive wealth for employees and employers!
  45. 45. Disclosures: • The principles and guidelines spoken about in this presentation are used and adopted strictly for the 2win group of companies that I operate/have invested in. • There are various alternative interpretations of ESOP best practices that other companies and employers may adopt. • This document should serve as a guideline and reference - not as a rule book!
  46. 46. Tip 20: People believe REAL STORIES. Provide a few to them.

  48. 48. Tip 21: Summarize a presentation if you have shared lots of lessons and insights

  50. 50. Tip 22: To extend your conversation with your audience, ask them to do something and revert to you!
  51. 51. Assignment What would you DO in this case, how and why? Mail me – alok@rodinhood.com

  54. 54. Tip 23: To provoke your audience, present them a ‘checklist’ – this will get them thinking and call you back!
  55. 55. Checklist • Have you: – Blogged? – Been an influencer on Quora? – Presented at ad:tech, demo, pluggd.in, IITs, IIMs? – Written for leading publications? – Trended on Twitter? – Activated Pinterest? – Conducted “Hangouts”? – Been “Slideshared”? – “Tumbl’d”?
  56. 56. Tip 24: If you are pitching a service, DETAIL what you can do
  57. 57. What we can do for you • Be smart about your PR and help with the checklist • Create content, curate and host events • Influence digiterati and generate industry invitations • One stop shop for making sure you develop a digital ‘halo’!
  58. 58. Tip 25 : Hygiene pointers
  59. 59. Hygiene: • I always use Arial and either a white or black template so that there is no distortion on large screens/SlideShare, etc. • MS PPT is the best option for me. Prezi is too complicated and distorts on screen. Keynote is cool but it gets messed up when moving between Mac and PC.
  60. 60. Hygiene: • SPEND HOURS ANIMATING each slide of your PPT and getting the impact of each point across. • Try and create impact using 8-10 slides max. • ALWAYS TEST RUN your PPT when presenting at events. Check screen resolutions, edges that may cut your slides, etc. • I avoid sound files. The volume is always an issue and getting audio connections is always a challenge. • To improve your PPTs, keep checking the Top Presentations on SlideShare every week!
  61. 61. Tip 26: How to present on stage?
  62. 62. ‘How to present’ tips • If possible, mike-up, carry a remote control AND MOVE ACROSS THE FLOOR. Don’t get stuck like a statue whose feet are glued to the ground. • SPEAK LESS. Let the pictures and the headers TALK. • Be spontaneous. If the audience is cold ask them if they need sweaters…
