Each month we will bring you hints, tips and inside advice on how you can be making the most of your presentation, whilst ensuring you stand out from the crowd.
This month it’s letter M’s turn!
Metaphors – are a great way of explaining a point in a fresh way. They will add difference to your presentation, and make the audience think about the same point in a new way. You can use a metaphor theme throughout your presentation if it works, but don’t add too many different ones as your messages will become lost.
Method – PowerPoint is a tool not a method, if your information is not engaging on its own adding animations and colours will not help. Storyboard your presentation first then use PowerPoint to make it into a digital format. The way you design your slides will be your method.
Mixed Messages – the objective of any presentation is to make sure the audience leave with clear information. Make sure all your statements are clear and support each other, even if it’s not great news be honest with your audience. If you are giving your presentation with colleagues make sure you are all saying the same thing, otherwise the audience will be left confused and deflated.
