Organization & Preparation Tips

Organization & Preparation Tips
Before you even open up PowerPoint, sit down and really think about the day of your presentation. What is the real purpose of your talk? Why is it that you were asked to speak? Before you begin to formulate the content of your presentation, you need to ask yourself many basic questions with an eye to becoming the best possible presenter for that particular audience. Who is the audience? What are their backgrounds? What is the purpose of the event? Is it to inspire? Why were you asked to speak? What are their expectations of you? Where is it? Find out everything you can about the location and logistics of the venue. When is it? Do you have enough time to prepare? No matter how great your delivery, or how professional and beautiful your supporting visuals, if your presentation is not based on solid content, you can not succeed. Do not fall into the trap of thinking that in order for your audience to understand anything, you must tell them everything. Simple does not mean stupid.

CÓMO HACER UNA BUENA PRESENTACIÓN EN POWERPOINT. Segunda parte. Estimados amigos de Profeland: Hoy vamos a ver los elementos necesarios para que un PowerPoint sea eficaz y cumpla el principio básico para el que el complemento fue creado: el apoyo gráfico de los contenidos. Una buena presentación debe constar de tres partes: - Introducción - Discusión - Conclusión En las anteriores partes los elementos que analizaremos son: - Diseño - Organización y contenido - Otros elementos: número de diapositivas, puntero láser, tiempo etc. - Tamaño y fuente: Los expertos hablan de la ley 6x7x6, que consistiría en: El tamaño de la letra tiene que ser mayor de 24 puntos en el cuerpo de la diapositiva, y de no menos de 34 para el título. En cuanto a la fuente, ésta debería ser sencilla y limpia, especialmente en el cuerpo de la diapositiva (en los títulos se puede poner alguna fuente algo más sofisticada). Herramientas> Opciones> Guardar > Activar Incrustar fuentes TrueType (Embed TrueType fonts). Las viñetas son palabras clave, no párrafos completos. . . . . . . .

Delivery - Reynolds 1. Show your passion If I had only one tip to give, it would be to be passionate about your topic and let that enthusiasm come out. Yes, you need great content. Yes, you need professional, well designed visuals. 2. You’ve heard it before: First impressions are powerful. 3. Humans have short attention spans when it comes to passively sitting and listening to a speaker. 4. Get closer to your audience by moving away from or in front of the podium. 5. To advance your slides and builds, use a small, handheld remote. 6. If you press the “B” key while your PowerPoint or Keynote slide is showing, the screen will go blank. 7. Try looking at individuals rather than scanning the group. 8. If you are speaking in a meeting room or a classroom, the temptation is to turn the lights off so that the slides look better. 9. If you are presenting to a small group, then you can connect your computer to a large TV (via the s-video line-in). 10.

Structure Your Presentation Like a Story - Nancy Duarte by Nancy Duarte | 8:00 AM October 31, 2012 After studying hundreds of speeches, I’ve found that the most effective presenters use the same techniques as great storytellers: By reminding people of the status quo and then revealing the path to a better way, they set up a conflict that needs to be resolved. That tension helps them persuade the audience to adopt a new mindset or behave differently — to move from what is to what could be. Here’s how it looks when you chart it out: And here’s how to do it in your own presentations. Craft the Beginning Start by describing life as the audience knows it. After you set that baseline of what is, introduce your vision of what could be. What is: We fell short of our Q3 financial goals partly because we’re understaffed and everyone’s spread too thin. What could be: But what if we could solve the worst of our problems by bringing in a couple of powerhouse clients? Once you establish that gap, use the rest of the presentation to bridge it

[Fuente Hongkiat] [Imagen CC F+c+f=cH] Do Your Slides Pass the Glance Test? - Nancy Duarte by Nancy Duarte | 11:00 AM October 22, 2012 An audience can’t listen to your presentation and read detailed, text-heavy slides at the same time (not without missing key parts of your message, anyway). So make sure your slides pass what I call the glance test: People should be able to comprehend each one in about three seconds. Think of your slides as billboards. When people drive, they only briefly take their eyes off their main focus — the road — to process billboard information. Keep It Simple Research shows that people learn more effectively from multimedia messages when they’re stripped of extraneous words, graphics, animation, and sounds. So when adding elements to your slides, have a good reason: Does the audience need to see your logo on each slide to remember who you work for? It’s also important to stick to a consistent visual style in your slide deck. Consider the “before” slide below. Flow. Contrast. White space. Hierarchy. Unity.
