Content Planning• Step 5: Make numbers meaningful• For example, what do the following numbers mean to you? 85,000 85,000 $6,000 $6,000 $28 $28
Content Planning• Why are they meaningful?• Let’s look at another example….. – USA’s national debt is USD 14 trillion – What does it mean to you? – How do you feel about this number? – Would it help if it could be compared to something that you can relate to?
Is it now more meaningful?• The secret is to put numbers into a perspective your audience can relate to

The Presentation Triangle• Content What do I want to say? What is the story?• Design How is the structure of my presentation? How are my slides? How is the presentation environment?• Delivery How do I want to say it? How persuasive?
Content• If you are Steve Jobs, theme message might be: “The new iPod Nano is the coolest thing available in the electronics market”.• In your exercise, you should try to create this message which will appear time and again so audience can remember.
Design• Design doesn’t only mean the fonts you are using or what kind of pictures, but it deals with the whole “feel” to the presentation.• It is about the theme and the environment of your presentation. It may not have to be confined to your ppt.• Use other visual aids where necessary.
Delivery• This is the part that deals with the “how” of the presentation, e.g. your style of presenting, your public speaking skills.• It’s the tone of voice, body language, eye contacts, making rapport, time management etc.• The measurement yardstick is how well you are connecting to your audience with an objective for them to remember your key message(s).
What has Michael Douglas done right in this movie?
Prepare a presentation in a hurry?A tool called 3D outline using the 5 Ws• The WHAT column identifies each segment of your presentation.• The WHY column is for recording the reason why you have chosen what you will present.• The HOW column includes the method of delivery, such as talking, flip charts, PowerPoint, stories, testimonies, role-playing, games, activities, trivia, quizzes, videos, movie clips, or audio clips.• The TIME (or WHEN) column is for recording the estimated amount of time you will have to cover each segment in the WHAT column.• The WHO column is an optional fifth element you can add if more than one person will be involved in the presentation delivery.
What is a 3D Outline?• The 3-D Outline™ allows you to quickly get your arms around your presentation, because it helps you identify and quantify large amounts of information in a small amount of space and time.• It uncovers many of the unknown elements of your presentation, helps you to see the big picture, and allows you to organize your thoughts and maintain your focus as you sort through your material.
