Powerful Presentation Skills
One of the most crucial skills any professional must possess is the ability to make compelling presentations. In fact, this very ability is what takes working with colleagues and addressing customers to new, greater heights. For one, it allows you to take control of the perceptions of others about your product and more importantly, about yourself. However, we’re also aware this is a very difficult ability to master. This training course is dedicated into ensuring that you can create great first impressions, create graphically compelling presentations, forward superior arguments and exercise great control over your own memory.
Creating powerful presentations is never easy; it requires time, persistence, effort, creativity and a good grasp of logic and authoritative reasoning, but once you’re able to use all of these skills in an orderly and even simultaneous manner, there’s no one out there who can stop you from becoming anything you want to be: a writer, a diplomat, a government official and more importantly, an effective sales professional. If you wish to learn more about how to create presentations that win hearts and minds and even create your own customised session for your team, please contact us. We have an entire catalogue of training courses and a team of experts intent on making you and your team the strongest assets anyone would compete for.
Take Control of First Impressions
The sales pitch, contrary to public opinion, doesn’t start at the moment of selling but at the very moment of contact. When you encounter a great salesman either through phone or in person, you can sense from them a kind of authoritative yet caring aura which compels you to listen to what they have to say; sometimes you might even be compelled to buy their products outright! Similarly, whether you’re on the way to a whiteboard or about to reach for your customer’s hand, it is necessary to learn the right steps and ways to build rapport and even how to dress properly for the occasion. After all, what you sell or create is an extension of what you truly are.
Plan Presentations Carefully
When making proposals, time is your best friend. It’s what gives you the space you need to think about what your presentations and agendas might be on the big day. Preparation is everything, and as such, one of the ways you can prepare is writing a proposal before setting it off the ground. No, we do not mean making a PowerPoint presentation— that will come later. We mean being able to map out proper contexts, set proper limits, definitions of terms and in general, creating a well-researched, well-written proposal that shuts down counter-arguments by itself and compels other people to consider your methods before rejecting them. This training session therefore will devote time to help you create a proposal that even you will find irrefutable.
Make Creative Presentations
Part of the preparation process is making a graphically-compelling presentation. No, we’re not talking about creating spaceships and light sabers to demonstrate (although that would arguably be nice!). We digress; it’s about making presentations that are easy to follow and graphs that aren’t too painful on the eyes to read. After all, the intention is to be able to present your arguments in the best possible form. If your audience is unable to follow your presentation, they might be forced to act like stenographers, constantly trying to keep up with your speech. As a result, they might miss some important points along the way. Worse, a poorly-made presentation may actually confuse the very person supposed to explain it: you. It is very important to know how to create presentations that visually compel and are easy to follow. We discuss not only the basics, we also provide super presentation skills that will make any presentation stand out.
Make Notes That Work
No one can ever fault you for not being able to memorise a full speech written on a long white paper. In fact, you’ll find that people in the workplace are okay with you looking at your notes every once in a while. This is because there’s only so much our own memories can do. Plus when presenting facts or information that require evidence, being spot on can be more important than the way it is presented. It all depends on the subject matter. Between our everyday responsibilities, activities and even our precious down times, our memories can only retain so much information. However, reading your notes too much can also cause some other problems. How will your colleagues know if you actually took the time to study your proposals, or that if you even made them yourself? As such, there’s a delicate balance to be maintained between aiding your memory and maintaining your sense of authority. This training course will therefore help you make notes that aid your memory without you having to read up too much on them.
Exercise Critical Thinking on the Go
When making presentations, being able to forward logical arguments is an extremely handy skill. Of course, it would be impractical to point out how your statements aren’t fallacies every so often, but being able to defend your arguments on-the-go can compel even the most critical minds to reconsider their perspectives of the world. For example, if you need to make a sales pitch, focusing on the merits of your product while simultaneously attacking potential counter-arguments your customers might make, can not only instill that authoritative sense, it can lead your customers, and ultimately your audience, to trust you and your judgment. Our training course will therefore devote crucial time into helping you apply critical thinking skills at every possible turn.
Keep Audience Engagement Going
A huge part of the fundamentals of presentation-making is the ability to speak eloquently. This means being able to speak without offending anyone or in ways that might remove them from the experience. For example, you may have had someone yawn on you before or even worse, tell you that you’re too disengaged. The truth is while colleagues might be willing to put up with a boring speech out of respect, professionalism and curiosity, that subtle yawn which they might try to conceal can become more progressive, culminating in them ultimately losing awareness of their surroundings. If you’ve ever had such experiences, then you definitely should be able to know how to prevent this from happening. Through our activities, you’ll be able to make speeches that keep the fires of discussion alive.
