Now to present that expertise!
If you can’t remember what to say; or if your audience get bored; or if people don’t act on your presentation; or if you’re unreasonably nervous… the chances are it’s ‘cos your presentation’s structure sucks.
Don’t panic – here’s the help you need… both for designing your presentations and for keeping your nerves in check. Oh, and for helping deliver that presentation, too!
A great presentation can change your work and your life. And the basics of a great presentation is having the right content and the right structure. It’s as simple as that. Sure, other things can make it better but if you don’t have the right structure, nothing can save it.
Luckily there’s a system. It’s the system that the pros use. And now it’s a process that you can use, too.
It’s all about the structure of your presentation and we’ve put the system for creating the optimum structure in our pack!
So why is the structure so important?
Structure isn’t everything but without it, nothing else matters!
1It's important for your workload...
…it makes it easier to remember your presentation and to deliver it. No more hours spent trying to memorise your presentation. Each bit of flows obviously into the next, organically. No more worrying about what you’re going to say next on stage – so you can concentrate on how you’re saying it and on how you’re audience is reacting.
Better presentations with less work? Sounds too good to be true – but I promise you it isn’t!
2It's important for being understood...
…a great structure makes it easier for your audience to understand what you’re saying. That’s because they use less Cognitive Load trying to understand things (Extraneous Load) so there’s more space in people’s heads available for taking your content on board
By the way, scientists call that last bit ‘Germane Load’, and it’s critical to learning.
3It's important for your authority...
…people trust more what they find easy to understand. There’s a huge chunk of research on that!
What that means for your presentations (obviously!) is that people are more likely to believe what you’re saying – and then to act on it!
And isn’t that the the whole aim and point of your presentation? To get people to do something..?
4It's important for handling nerves...
…nerves cripple lots of people and get in the way of almost every presenter. But knowing your material, knowing it’s arranged in the best way and knowing you’re delivering it in a cool way all help to put the nerves back in their box.
Even professionals get nervous because nerves show you care – but controlling them is critical.
Who’s designed the Advanced Design Process? Where’s it come from?
The system was designed by Dr Simon Raybould (author of Presentation Genius). Simon has trained literally thousands of presenters in the 13 years he’s been a trainer and he’s now one of the UK’s most widely respected presentation skills trainers.
His work has taken him from Ireland in the west to Singapore in the east…Want a little bit of the PDP's origins and history?
I noticed that dozens and dozens of my peers were doing – the elite speakers and presenters – and noticed that they had lots of different ways of working … but underneath all these systems was a pattern, and that pattern can become a system.
And that system can be put in a box – and you can now get hold of that box!
Here’s a note of caution though… Presentation Design Pack is great, but it’s not as good as face to face training. It’s probably not going not going to make you a Presentation Genius all on it’s own. We would say that though, wouldn’t we?! The thing is, very few people (in the grand scheme of things!) need to make fantastically good presentations. Most of us need to make good presentations because, let’s face it, making presentations are only part of what you do.
And the Presentation Design Pack is perfect for that!
What do you get in your pack?
The Presentation Design Pack is perfect for you if you’re great at what you do but need to talk about it. Maybe you’re looking to get promoted? Maybe you’ve just been promoted or got a new job? Maybe you’re running your own business? Whatever it is, this is what you need if presenting is part of what you’ve got to do in your life but it’s not the whole point of your job 🙂Want to know what's in the Pack? Click to expand
