Recommendations for an Effective Presentation

  1. Create Presentation Slides: (we suggest a tool such as PowerPoint).
    • Why? People learn more when they can both see and hear your message.
  2. Slide Content – Images, Brief Talking Points: Bullet points are encouraged. No paragraphs please.
  3. Stick to the Points on Your Slide:  This helps people to know where you are. You may add commentary.
  4. 1-Minute Max Per Slide: Not too many points on a slide.  Changing slides every minute keeps peoples’ attention.
  5. 7-15 Slides Total: Based on time per slide.
  6. Repetition Mantra (both for overall presentation and for major sections):
    • Tell ‘em what you’re gonna tell ‘em: (Intro)
    • Tell ‘em (Message)
    • Tell ‘em what you told ‘em (Wrap-up)
  7. Engage Your Audience:
    • Focus on the benefits people need — benefits you deliver.
    • Showing proof builds your credibility: Client stories, examples, testimonials.
    • If the purpose of your presentation is…
      • To inform?  Ask questions to see if people understand
      • Inspire your audience to take action?  What’s your action step?  Be really clear what you want them to do.
  8. Ask for Specific Referrals: The more specific your requests, the more likely members will respond. Paint a clear picture.
