Do you want to deliver a better virtual presentation? With more business professionals using zoom as their go-to platform for meetings, we all need to up our virtual presentation game.
Trevor had developed a 7P of presenting model to help business professionals achieve presenting success:
Trevor suggested practicing your presentation and a good way to do it virtually is to record your presentation via zoom. Practice can get you into the “flow” of the presentation, and you should only limit yourself to 80-85% of the presentation of the time allowed.
Begin your slides with the point of view of the target audience, Simplify your presentation and don’t put too much information on each slide. Instead of dumping the information from your company, think about entertaining the audience and provide solutions to their problems.
When you are presenting you are the focus of your presentation, not the slides. The slides are there to assist your presentation but they shouldn’t take away the focus of your presentation. Start with a word or one image and try not to read off from the slides. Think of powerpoints as a prompt but not a script. Ask yourself “do I really slide”?
