Did you know that even if you make routine presentations, you need an effective process flow so you can save time and certainly faster in drafting concepts. Since DoctorSlide doing routine activity in conceptualize and designing clients' presentations, we figured out an effective process flow that might benefit you in making everything easier.
1. Define Goals, Audiences' Persona, and General Expectations
First of all, it is important for speaker to define purpose of the presentation, typical of the audience they will face when giving a presentation and also what expectations are expected by the speaker to the audience. For example:
- The purpose of the presentation: an introduction to DoctorSlide's services
- Typical audience: top management executives of multi-national corporations
- Expectations: the audience orders DoctorSlide services
2. Draw a Rough Framework & Presentation Sequence
After defining the first step, you need to think about how to frame the flow of the presentation content before you continue making the content. For example, the sales presentation framework start from the following points:
- Speaker profile/portfolio (credibility of the speaker)
- Purpose of presentation
- Background of the problem (a problem that is often found by audiences - can be in form of quick facts as well)
- Solution (bridge to the introduction of your product / company)
- Explanation of the solutions' package
- Other additional value (if any)
- Price / investment package
- Case studies (examples of successful project with previous clients)
- Testimonials (optional)
- Closing (call to action in the form of contact numbers, addresses etc.)
3. Start to Develop Content based on Framework
After pretty sure of the agreed framework (all slides' big topic) on the step (2), the next step is to start developing the content in each framework in detail. You can add graphics, text, images and various information that fits the framework. Make sure you include a data source for each content (if you are taking the data from 3rd party source) so that it doesn't violate copyright.
4. Review the Presentation Content
After you have finished with the content based on presentation framework then continue to review it. This review can be done by yourself or by people around you who trust and understand your topic. Revise the required content after getting input from the review phase.
5. Start Presentation Design
The next step if you are confirming with the presentation content, do start the final steps that is designing the entire presentation. Make sure your visual stand out than words (make it visual rather than wordy). Contact DoctorSlide if you need help for professional presentation design assistance.
