Presentations & Speeches

“No one can remember more than three points.”

– Philip Crosby

Audiences share this much in common: They come ready to be impressed. So how do you take advantage of this?

Really it boils down to an art, not unlike a movie that mesmerizes you first and then pleasantly haunts you afterwards. So how do you ensure an optimum “performance” with each presentation?

  • Your audience is gold. Treat them as such with well tailored, well prepared material. Respect their time constraints by planning to wrap up five minutes sooner than they expect.
  • Make your message simple and three points thick. Save massive details for a question-and-answer period. Interaction with your audience often makes your presentation more memorable.
  • Choose visuals that are relevant and powerful enough to save you the proverbial thousand words apiece.
  • Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse. Delivery is as critical as content is to your presentation’s effectiveness.
  • Be comfortable with your technology or do not use it. It exists for you, and not the other way around.

Dale Carnegie famously said, “”There are always three speeches, for every one you actually gave. The one you practiced, the one you gave, and the one you wish you gave.” Let us work together to bundle all three versions in one.

We can help you storyboard and script your presentation, and then build the visuals that support it. We can sit on on rehearsals wearing your audience’s anticipated mindset, to applaud where you’ve hit the mark and critique where you may have lost it. We are prepared to do whatever it takes to get you ready for “Showtime!”
