Imagine you are given a topic that is expected to be prepared and presented to very important stakeholders, what should you do first?
As the presenter, you are "required" to master the topic so it's important to do a quick and in-depth research on the subject. In this modern era, you can easily do research via social networks and official websites. Find out as many as possible about the information related to topic that you are going to discuss.
Categorization of Information
With the complete information you have gained from online research, do categorize the information according to the priority of the discussion you will bring. This will help you structure the content / slide template. Do not forget to always cite a source if you use third party's journal or data reference.
Examples of categorization of information as follows:
- Background information
- Present condition information
- Impact and Benefit
Develop Engaging Copywriting
After knowing each important point that you are going to discuss, take time to develop easy-to-understand copywriting on each slide. You can reference to some of your favorite billboard ads that are simple and memorable. Why? Because the language of advertising (whether billboards, Youtube ads or TVC) is usually made as short, simple and as easy as possible in order to be able to remember the audience in a limited time. Make your slide similar with that theory too. Keep It Super Simple!
Design Your Presentation Professionally
Seeing is believing, make your audiences believe what you said by showing it on your slides. Use appropriate icons or photos to keep your audience stay focused on your topic. Don't hesitate to ask for DoctorSlide's assistance if you need any further assistance in design matter.
Do Series of Rehearsal
If you have gone through the steps above, do not forget to run a rehearsal or practice with people around you. Ask for their feedback and comments regarding the clarity of content, speech and body language that you have shown.
