3 Great Tips on Presentations

A colleague recently shared with me some tips on presenting to an audience and he gave me this great tip.

The three keys components to a great presentation are:

CONTENT         |         CONTEXT         |         CREDIBILITY

The Content is the the topic of your presentation, the subject matter, the images and the points you want to make in your presentation.

The Context is how you relate the subject matter points to your profession or industry.  

The Credibility comes from backing up what you are talking about by giving real life examples.

For example, your presenting on technology for the AEC industry (Architecture, Engineering and Construction). The Content may be examples of technology you can use such as smart boards, tablets, software etc. The Context would be how they integrate with what you do and how you do it and the Credibility comes from an example of how using this certain app or software saved you money or time in the field.

The Credibility is important, if you cant back up what you have just said your whole presentation falls apart, you cant back up what you have just told someone.

I do a lot of presenting so this tip really resonated with me, it's always great to have these refreshers and tips no matter how good you think you are at presentations.
Remember these three rules and make your presentation memorable.

Oh! And the topic my colleague it presenting is "Business Development for Introvert"

Check out these series of You Tube clips  The Power of Introverts - Ep 1 - Susan Cain very interesting stuff.
