Main Presentation

Presented by: Robert Lane

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 recommendations, etc.

Come to our breakfast meeting Friday, March 11 and get some ideas that can boost your persuasiveness with your PowerPoint presentations.
