Unravel the mind of your audience
Before we start with any technique, you need to understand what goes on in the mind of your audience. How are your audience wired to absorb information? Are your audience more left-brained or right-brained when receiving information? What are the likes and dislikes of your audience? This segment will let you in on the inner workings of your audience’s brain, and how you can connect with your audience by engaging their minds effectively.
Unpack the tools of a designer
Let’s be honest. Most presenters are clueless about design concepts like Flow, Proximity, Contrast, Composition and Colour. Through this segment, we will turn you into an instant “designer” by equipping you with tools of the trade used by professional designers to reach out to their audience. Included in this segment is a study of 5 to 10 decks of well-designed slides, and how you can emulate the techniques used and apply them to your own slides.
Create unity in diversity
Have you ever sat through a presentation and could not make heads or tails of it? You could have suffered from a case of “data diarrhoea” or “power-poisoning”, with a hotchpotch of information dumped into the presentation slides. Here you will learn a systematic approach to creating a unified and coherent deck of slides so that your audience will be clear with the flow and framework of your presentation.
Harness the power of animation
Presenters have a love-hate relationship with animation. Some use it so aggressively that the audience will feel like they are watching a product demonstration of all the available features of the PowerPoint software. Others avoid it like the plague. The truth is, when used appropriately with taste and creativity, animation has the power to multiply the impact of your presentation. Through this segment, we’ll explore how animation is one of the key elements in making your presentation stand out from the crowd.
Design clear and effective charts
Many presenters consider charts as a necessary evil that they have to live with. That’s because most presenters fall short of bringing out the real value of these charts. They neglect to ask themselves a few important questions: Why am I presenting these charts? Which numbers are most critical to my audience? Is there a better way to present the numbers so that my audience will not be drowning in an ocean of information? The purpose of this segment is to equip you with the right techniques to cut through the numerical jungle and empower you to present quantitative values with clarity and effectiveness.
Develop your reservoir of resources
Have you ever felt frustrated by the lack of suitable graphic resources available to you when you are designing your slides? Or are you constrained by the costs of purchasing legitimate artwork that can really spice up your slides? Good news! This segment will enable you with little known yet powerful techniques used by graphic designers to create impressive graphics. You will also be guided to create your own e-resource book that you can flip through and get ideas, especially when you are hard-pressed for time.
Discover the treasure troves on the internet I
s it true that everything that you have ever needed is now available on the internet? The fact is, the experience of many presenters has been a feeling of constant frustration when they look for really useful and impressive graphics, tools and websites to design their slides. This segment will show you how you can sift through mountains of thrash on the internet and discover treasure troves of resources
