The legacy approach to giving business presentations has, since its origins, been the same: A rushed and anxious presenter stands in front of a room and shows a set of unrelated, overcomplicated slides that he or she has begged, borrowed, or stolen from a colleague, and proceeds to read them verbatim to the audience for far too long. The presenter then opens the floor to questions and provides canned answers.
Unfortunately, that is Standard Operating Procedure in business today. Fortunately, there is an alternative: Power Presentations. Our differentiated methodology is a proven approach that provides a rich set of effective techniques to develop all the vital elements of every presentation:
- 1Story Development in seven easy steps
- 2Slide Design based on audience perception
- 3Delivery Skills in three simple techniques
- 4How to handle tough questions by identifying the key issue before answering
Our techniques are drawn from the professional methods used in television broadcast news and our years of experience coaching companies for their IPO road shows. These techniques have been tested and perfected for over two decades in the high pressure arenas of Silicon Valley and Wall Street where millions of dollars ride on every pitch.
