Presentation

  1. 1. Presentation - making it effective Vedula Rameswara Sharma based on extract of interview Gene Zelazny (Director - Visual communications, McKnsey & Co) on making the most of your presentations . http://www.consult4scm.blogspot.com/
  2. 2. Simplify (kiss kiss kiss) Easy to leave things complicated, challenge is to simplify. Mantra is -It takes same amount of time to present five ideas on one slide as it does to present one idea on each slide. Focus one point at a time. Number of ideas that count, not number of slides . http://www.consult4scm.blogspot.com/
  3. 3. Client expectations Client or audience expect short presentation, more interaction with fewer visuals. Don't think of Presenting, think of communicating with. Think of audience than you. It is the presenter who's the presentation not the visuals. http://www.consult4scm.blogspot.com/
  4. 4. PRACTICE, PRACTICE & PRACTICE Is the way to find the weak spots. Make your presentation as compelling as possible. http://www.consult4scm.blogspot.com/
  5. 5. What is your specific objective and what you want the audience member to do as a result of the presentation? Answer some basic questions like, Who am I supposed to be as a member of the audience? How familiar am I with the material? Three good reasons why I should agree with recommendations? Why should I say “No” to recommendation? How big is the audience? How much time I have for presentation? Once we answer the above we will have a solid foundation on which to build the presentation. http://www.consult4scm.blogspot.com/
  6. 6. Evolution of presentations in last 40+ years <ul><li>Visuals with free hand lettering
  7. 7. Ruling pens
  8. 8. T-squares, India ink, zip a tone shadings
  9. 9. Over head transparencies
  10. 10. 35mm slides
  11. 11. PowerPoint, videos, multimedia
  12. 12. Video conferencing, WebEx. </li></ul>Audience is no longer in the same room as the speaker Technology made it easy for any one and everyone to make presentation, nothing effected the content of presentation. Visuals become more important than the speaker. http://www.consult4scm.blogspot.com/
  13. 13. Action Say it simple. Interact with audience. Animation, clip art use when it helps to make a point, otherwise keep it absolute minimum. Be concerned of misuse, abuse from Technology. Remember kiss and practice. Give conclusions, recommendations upfront, spend rest of time showing how you got there. Thank you. http://www.consult4scm.blogspot.com/
