Prepare an Irresistible Menu
3 Lectures 47:03

To engage your audience members, the theme of your presentation must appear to have value to them and be in line with their goals. It is essential you know what specific topics will be of interest. The best way is to ask them.

Identify What Your Audience Wants
19:19

Now comes the unique element of your presentation: when you tell them the whys.

The whats—the takeaways—offer practical advice that appeals to people's conscious needs. The whys meet their subconscious needs. They eliminate or minimize anything that is causing anxiety, frustration, disappointment, or conflict, and they enhance whatever brings them pleasure.

Describe Why They Would Want It
12:49

By defining the way you'll relieve their pain points and satisfy their pleasure points, you tell your audience why they'd want your presentation. I then asked Brad to form a sentence naming each takeaway (the what) that summarized the reason they'd want it (the whys) and hinted at the way to achieve it (the how). The audience can't resist the bait. That's why I call those suggestions the hooks.

Suggest How You're Going to Give it to Them

Create Your Core Content
2 Lectures 32:09

Go through the takeaways one by one. Begin by asking yourself, “Does the audience know how to do this?” This is unlikely, of course, since if the audience already knew how to make those takeaways happen, they wouldn't be at your presentation.

For example, when I asked Brad if he felt his audience would understand how to put his takeaway “Solve complex math problems” into practice, he said no. So I told him that he would have to come up with tasks—procedures or actions that make the takeaways possible.

You must do the same. I suggest that a presenter come up with about three tasks for each takeaway. You describe the tasks in exactly the same way you described the takeaways.

Define the Tasks
14:58

The example is the final level of the task hierarchy. A good presenter gets to it as quickly as possible. It is the most powerful way to ensure that your audience knows how to do what you suggest. The examples are very important because they're the solutions to the mysteries.

Don't overwhelm your audience with material. Try to keep your presentation to around five agenda items per hour, ideally ten minutes each but no shorter than six and no longer than thirteen.

Solve the Mysteries and Keep Things Simple

Map Out Your Message
3 Lectures 30:15

These assure the audience they're in the right place (because the title is onscreen) and remind them what they're going to hear. You add the rest. This is what continues to hook your audience—when they have to listen to you to get the answer to their mystery.

Prepare Your Opening Slides
15:55

The highlighted agenda slides serve mostly as placeholders so the audience knows what's about to be discussed. The task slides summarize the main tasks involved in making the takeaway actionable, but you supply the details and describe subtasks and sub-subtasks as necessary.

Prepare Your Core Content Slides
05:47

One summary slide, the next-to-last slide. It repeats the agenda to remind the audience of what they just got. And one final slide, which confirms that the presentation is over. It expresses thanks and gives contact information, and remains onscreen after you have left the stage.

Prepare Your Closing Slides

Add Variety to Your Visuals
4 Lectures 34:27

There are many sources for pictures on the web. Search “stock photos” and a large number of sites will pop up. Look for up-to-date information about specific sites where you can find images available for a minimal fee or no fee. Read the information and licensing terms carefully. Copyright law governs the use and alteration of images. The words “royalty-free” mean you might pay a flat fee to use the image but you will not have to pay for each copy or use. The words “copyright-free” usually indicate that there is no charge for use and that you may be able to modify the image as you wish.


Use Pictures to Add Impact
14:25

There is no shortage of books on how to manipulate the text and the visuals on your PowerPoint slides, and I think you may find them useful. Here, I will point out only the essential points to keep in mind and share a few of the techniques I find most useful in making attractive, effective slides.

Keep Your Graphics Simple
04:27

Words alone aren't always the best way to make your point. Illustrations allow you to present a lot of information at once.

Use Illustrations to Increase Comprehension
04:23

Before I began to address one group about giving presentations, I had overheard them debate the value of handouts, so I addressed the topic during my opening. “You may not be convinced of the value of handouts,” I said, “but I ask that each of you take one. Within fifteen minutes, at least half of you will be taking copious notes.”
