How to make a powerful point
The name suggests it — PowerPoint: to make a series of powerful points. Learn how to identify the point of your slide, and how to build information hierarchy in your deck.
How to write a great headline
We use labels, not headlines, to title our slides — ‘Q4 results’ or ‘Product roadmap’. A good headline will do most of the work for you. Learn how to use them effectively.
How to build credibility
Headlines and evidence in your slides will increase understanding and recall by 18%. Learn how to use the Evidence Stack℠ to build more persuasive slides.
How to balance words, structure, and pictures
Words, structure, and pictures are the ingredients of a story. Learn how to weave them together throughout your presentation to make it compelling.
How to use your Presenter Type℠
We all have unique presentation styles. There is no one right way to present. Learn what works for you, and how you can comfortably deliver great presentations to your audience.
“How can I become a better presenter?”
The ability to create followership, to persuade, to influence, is limited by the ability to communicate. How well you communicate, standing up in front of an audience, over the phone, or on video calls, will help or hurt your career. Let’s face it, it’s not the best ideas that win, it’s the best-packaged ideas that win.
We’re told there is one right way to present — 3 bullets on a slide, 1 slide per minute, don’t fidget. And we create presentations without thinking about our audience or what we want to achieve. This is a path to a one-sided monologue and death by PowerPoint.
In our live-online Presenting Better course, we’ll explore the basic building blocks of presentations. You’ll learn how to build decks that work for you and your audience. How to build off of your unique strengths. How to avoid your most common presentation traps and gain buy-in from your audience.
