Improving Strategy, Content,
Technology & Delivery
10 Most Important Factors in Making Successful Presentations!

1. Know Who Your Audience Is!
Identify their prejudices, knowledge level, 'hot-buttons', and goals.
2.Identify your goals.
Know exactly what you want them to know, feel, think, and do when you are finished.
3. Prepare.
Utilize your resources - time, knowledge, words & technology - to organize content and build a presentation that is your best effort. Doing it at the last minute will be obvious to all.
4.Communicate benefits, not features.
It's what's important to them, not what's important to you!
5.Keep it Simple.
The audience will have a better chance of understanding and retaining your information.
6.Be Passionate!
If you aren't excited about your subject, they won't be!
7. Involve the audience.
They'll be flattered; it demonstrates you've done your homework; and they can't help but pay close attention.
8.Utilize a variety of resources to support your content.
Don't just build your presentation around easily created visuals.
9.Practice out loud.
If you practice, you'll continue refining, improving, and making it perfect.
10.No amount of technology can be substituted for the above.
PowerPoint is a wonderful tool - but it doesn't do any of these things for you!
