If you’re among the millions of business professionals secretly hoping
PowerPoint’s status quo someday meets a quick and painful demise, this session
will shock! PowerPoint’s true potential is very impressive, a fact most
speakers sadly overlook. Its secrets can unlock your conversational and
persuasive abilities in ways never imagined. And all that potential is sitting
there waiting for you to discover.
We’ll look at four key principles that redefine what it means to "give a
presentation.” You’ll discover how adding simple forms of navigation to slide
shows makes public speaking delightfully effective and FUN. Presentation
materials become a visual library, where any slide is instantly available.
The techniques you’ll see will help you:
• Answer audience questions—verbally and
visually—by quickly finding and displaying needed slides.
• Skip less important content without
viewers noticing (if time is running out, for example).
• Change the direction of talks at any time
to be more relevant.
• Display optional hidden detail, if
needed, such as full references, tables of specifications, graphs, web site
Come to our breakfast meeting Friday, March 11 and get some ideas that can
boost your persuasiveness with your PowerPoint presentations.
