  1. 1. Presentation Skills for Business Managers The New Rules of Presentations Presented by: Abhishek Sisodia Abhinav Joshi
  2. 2. Presentation <ul><li>A visual and aural event intended to communicate, for the purposes of providing information, helping to understand, gaining agreement, and/or motivating to act. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Content, Design, and Delivery <ul><li>Design is the architecture of the slides and the graphic-cal enhancements. </li></ul><ul><li>Delivery is how you voice your message. </li></ul><ul><li>Content includes the research and organization of materials </li></ul><ul><li>To make the presentation great, there must be synergy of these three elements. </li></ul>
  4. 4. The Process <ul><li>First, you must create your content. </li></ul><ul><li>Then, you must design for that content. </li></ul><ul><li>Finally, you must develop your delivery strategy and style. </li></ul>
  5. 5. The Situation <ul><li>• Purpose </li></ul><ul><li>• People </li></ul><ul><li>• Point </li></ul><ul><li>• Place </li></ul>
  6. 6. Using Humor <ul><li>HELPS YOU CONNECT WITH THE AUDIENCE. MAKES YOU MORE LIKEABLE. AROUSES INTEREST. KEEPS ATTENTION. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Using Humor <ul><li>HELPS EMPHASIZE POINTS AND IDEAS. DISARMS HOSTILITY. OVERCOMES OVERLY FLATTERING INTRODUCTIONS. GETS YOUR POINT ACROSS WITHOUT CREATING HOSTILITY. HELPS RELATE FACTS AND FIGURES. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Using Humor <ul><li>MAKES A POSITIVE IMPRESSION. SHOWS THAT YOU DON'T TAKE YOURSELF TOO SERIOUSLY. HELPS PAINT PICTURES IN THE AUDIENCE'S MIND. MAKES INFORMATION MORE MEMORABLE. LIGHTENS UP HEAVY MATERIAL. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Be Funny Image by Kathy Sierra, via Creating Passionate Users Blog
  10. 10. Using Humor <ul><li>YOU WILL BE ASKED BACK. </li></ul><ul><li>YOU WILL GET HIGHER EVALUATIONS OR MORE SALES. </li></ul><ul><li>YOU WILL MAKE MORE MONEY. </li></ul><ul><li>YOU WILL MAKE PEOPLE HAPPY </li></ul>
  11. 11. Timing <ul><li>Timing is one of the most important aspects of humor and NOZZZZZs presenting. Not only is timing involved in an individual piece of humor, it is also involved in the placement of that piece of humor in the overall presentation. </li></ul><ul><li>Timing is also involved in spontaneous reactions to &quot;expected“ unexpected developments during the presentation. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Timing <ul><li>Jack Benny said, &quot;Timing is not so much knowing when to speak, but knowing when to pause.“ </li></ul><ul><li>In joke telling, a pause just before and just after your punch line gives the audience a chance to laugh. </li></ul><ul><li>Absolutely do not continue to talk when laughter is expected. Laughter is hard to get and easy to discourage. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Timing <ul><li>Hold eye contact a little bit longer than you think you should when delivering punch lines because time is hard to judge when you are pumped-up for a presentation. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Time of day and Humor <ul><li>The first speaker of the day for an early morning (7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.) program should not expect hearty laughter. People are not conditioned to laugh a great deal in the early morning. </li></ul><ul><li>Many won't even be awake yet. Use more information and less humor </li></ul>
  15. 15. Time of day and Humor <ul><li>It's important for you to know when NOT to expect hearty laughter. It would be a waste of time to use your best material at a time when laughter normally wouldn't be expected. </li></ul>
  16. 16. A Sound, Sound System <ul><li>A humorous presentation demands a better sound system than a serious talk. In a serious talk, words can be missed and the main message can still be very clear. In humor it doesn't work that way. If key words are missed in a joke or story, it will ruin the humor. No one will laugh and you will look like a giant goober. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Closings <ul><li>You must put as much time into selecting and practicing your closing as you put into any other part of your presentation. Just like your opening, your closing does not have to be humorous. </li></ul><ul><li>It could be motivational, challenging, thoughtful, respectful of the length of the presentation, or it could restate your point in a different way. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Closings <ul><li>you could end with a touching story or quotation that leaves the audience thoughtful and quiet. Even the most serious subjects can benefit from humor, but the humor should be sprinkled throughout the body of the presentation. </li></ul><ul><li>Don't put it at the end because closings are powerful and the audience will think your overall attitude toward the subject is flippant. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Know More than You Show <ul><li>“ It’s not hard to know a lot of stuff; what’s hard is to know what stuff to share.” </li></ul>
  20. 20. Rating Presentations <ul><li>Here’s how Rick Altman rates presentations (“The Tyranny of Presentation Software”) </li></ul><ul><li>• Best Presentation: Truly excellent speaker, great ideas, and slides that amplify on the points made, instead of repeating them. </li></ul><ul><li>• Very Good: Truly excellent speaker, great ideas, and no slides. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Rating Presentations <ul><li>Still OK: Excellent speaker, redundant slides that don’t add anything. </li></ul><ul><li>Not So Good: Bad speaker, good slides. </li></ul><ul><li>Pretty Bad: Bad speaker, no slides. </li></ul><ul><li>The Worst: Bad speaker, redundant slides. </li></ul><ul><li>As you prepare a presentation, imagine your audience rating you by this scale. How would you score? </li></ul>
