Creative Presentations

“If the history was taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” Rudyard Kipling

 

In creating a successful presentation one considers the objective, audience and the environment. We are structuring the content on Advanced Techniques.

 

The FIRST and MOST IMPORTANT thing necessary before putting in any effort is that you define the OBJECTIVE of your presentation on one/more of the following levels:

  • Behavior
  • Cognitive
  • Emotional

 

SECOND most important is to know who your audience is and what is it that can motivate them in the direction of your objective.

 

THIRD is to have clearly defined the logistical requirements and constraints (time, equipment, materials, location, etc.) Once these 3 things are clear, we need to write a structured storythat makes us feel empowered and original.

 

HIGHLIGHTS: There are 2 very effective techniques that can be applied in presentation skills to make the story more resonant, well-defined and full of passion.

 

Anchoring

Anchoring is a neuro-linguistic programming term for the process by which memory recall or other responses become associated with some stimulus. The experience of the stimulus (the anchor) leads by reflex to the anchored response. When giving presentations the use of the anchors helps the presenter and audience structure the information and easily remember it.

 

Brake State

A break state is a sudden change in the context of a presentation that reconnects the presenter with the audience and introduces the element of surprise targeting a certain outcome. All the three representational systems (visual, auditory, kinesthetic) can be used with this technique.
