Keen to Wean Yourself off Slides When Presenting?

Keen to wean yourself off-over reliance on slides when #presenting?

Here's a simple tip:

If your first step when preparing a slide presentation is to open up Powerpoint...

STOP IT!

Prepare your slides as LATE in the preparation process as possible.

That way, you'll get clear on the overall flow / story / audience journey FIRST.

If you get too bogged down in slide development too early, you'll end up being taken hostage by them.

And that's not nice - for you or your audience.

I employed Simon for one-on-one presentation skills coaching, as I was required to speak at my company's annual conference. With Simon's advice, coaching and guidance, I gained valuable knowledge and confidence which made a huge difference to, and significantly improved, my delivery on the day. Simon is a great coach, and I will certainly consider using his services within my business going forward.
