We are working our way through the alphabet and bringing 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 time we’re looking at N!
Numbers – most presentations will contain numbers in some form, normally to show profit, loss or growth. The key with using numbers is to make them relevant to the audience as individuals. For example they don’t need to know every week’s profit margin, give them a yearly figure to work with and bring to the forefront some key figures within that year and an explanation as to why those numbers are important to them.
Natural – being natural with your presentation is key to your delivery and reception. Natural gestures, pauses and flow will show the audience you are confident in your presentation and statements, and they should be too.
Navigation – remember, not all presentations have to be linear. Hyperlinking allows you to navigate to relevant sections within a presentation. This can be particularly useful when your presentation contains a large amount of content. It allows you to tailor your presentation to your audience without the need for carrying around different presentation versions or switching between different presentations.
