Learn to create fantastic presentations that will get you orders
This full day program on making "Presentations" is very interactive. The class consists of lecture, numerous attendee speaking assignments, role-plays and a comprehensive session on Microsoft PowerPoint. The material is delivered and periodically the attendees are asked to practice the material in the form of presentations to the rest of the class. The program emphasizes presentation content as well as style. All attendees will be shown how to develop a presentation from scratch.
In our public seminars we limit the class size to 12 persons, so you get personalized treatment. Each class includes discussion about your situation and John Mitchell does everything possible to tailor the program to your needs.
Introduction To Public Speaking: Techniques to help deal with fear are presented and demonstrated. A variety of openings that will make it easier to control the start-up jitters are discussed and the attendees are asked to try them in a short introductory presentation to the class.
Preparation: A check list is provided for all the things that must be completed to be properly prepared. This will include, among many others, what you should know about the expected audience; planning your presentation so that it will meet your objectives and realize your expected outcome; Sizing the graphics so that they can be seen easily from a distance.
Developing Knock-Out Content: We discuss and demonstrate the 3-tier technique for presenting your story in "What's In It For Me" terms that make it clear what you are proposing and why your audience should take your recommendations.
Proposals: A number of sample winning, printed proposals are presented and
discussed showing the key elements of a written proposal including bracketing,
pie-sweeteners and other items to include to help sell your proposal.
Microsoft PowerPoint: The features of PowerPoint are presented and attendees are walked through the process of creating a presentation with and without Wizards. Our technique to cross reference slide numbers with handout pages and vice versa is demonstrated.
Adding Clip-Art: Graphics are gotten from the internet, sized and inserted into the PowerPoint presentation to augment your presentation.
Adding Audio And Video: Audio files (.wav) and video files (.avi) are inserted into PowerPoint slides with some of the files gotten from the internet. Audio and video file creation techniques are discussed and demonstrated along with recommended editing software.
Using Animation: Bulleted lists and graphics will be animated in PowerPoint and attendees will be shown how to make items appear and disappear on each slide with a simple mouse click.
Changing The Slide Master: Making changes on the PowerPoint slide master are demonstrated and practiced including adding graphics and un-grouping standard templates to alter the appearance of the slide master.
Presenting Your Presentation: At the end of the class, each attendee will be coached and assisted in making a formal presentation to the rest of the class. The attendees will learn how to print out the slides in a variety of formats for distribution to their audiences and to provide a master to make overheads. The importance of asking for the order will be emphasized and techniques to get the order will be presented.
