True or false? Before the first quarter hour is over in a typical presentation, people have usually checked out. Absolutely, true. If keeping someone's interest in our training or presentations were a business, we'd have at least an 80% failure rate! In this day of adult attention spans that mimic that of four-year-olds, research reminds us to "hook" and continually engage our audiences emotionally with images they can relate to immediately. Given what we know about the adult brain and adult learning theory, there is simply no excuse for lousy presentation slides and boring materials! So how does current adult brain research around attention, awareness and memory guide how you grab your audiences, energize to engage them, continually check their understanding and move them to action BEFORE they leave our session? And what can be gained by knowing the influential style of the listener we Call to Act? How can you insure your media like PowerPoint slides support your key messages rather than distract from them?
There are so many tools and tricks from PPT masters and architects out there, we've lost the basics.the science behind integrating just enough in our slides to impact the visual humans we are trying to influence with our messages. Less IS truly more here. But the LESS is critical!
Why should you attend?
Do you present to large audiences at work or in the community? What about company or small groups; even your own team? What about webinars or video conferences? Perhaps you present your expertise one on one and find yourself comfortable with your material and the flow of your content but frustrated that the majority of your prep time is actually spent looking for commands and shortcuts to create a slide deck? To be sure you aren't one of the hundreds of presenters we?d all like to eliminate from public speaking.the ones who drone on and on aimlessly talking AT their slides filled with endless dry data, it may be time to take another look at what you're putting out there.
