STAGE YOUR PRESENTATION

We are living in a world of “information overload,” permanently hopping between different kinds of media and sampling its highlights.

In order to have a chance at making an impact, you will need to “stage” your presentation and include it under the framework of a global experience – before, during, after – which promotes interest, impact and guarantees that your idea stays firmly embedded in people’s minds.

“Less is more”… really?

For years, we have seen slides in companies that are overloaded with texts, numbers, graphs and images. Conversely, the “less is more” motto, pushed to the extreme, is leading to the emergence of slides with no texts. Progress or danger?

Why be simpler and more agile ?

If you assiduously follow us on the networks, it will not have escaped your attention that we have just launched the 3rd version of our HUBSTORY® method, synonymous with simplicity and agility. So how to get into agile mode in your work as well as in the preparation of your presentations?

TABLES AND SLIDES: a marriage condemned in advance!

Luckily, sometimes there are questions whose technical answer is extremely easy to make use of! So, once in a while, putting a table on a slide is very easy. But we do not recommend you do it…

Today I’m giving a long speech…

To be short, you have to know how to simplify, choose and give things up. But as we rarely work alone, we must also federate, arbitrate and decide. It can be a long and tedious job. But it is job that pays in the end and that will lead you to shake up habits, challenge…

Facts are stubborn, but statistics are more pliable

If you want to impress your audience with figures, remember that the brain has trouble grasping large numbers. It is always effective to make comparisons with the budget of a country or the surface of a known building. The more concrete the frame of reference is, the more you will make an impact. To reread…

Form is content appearing on the surface

There is no need to be a graphic designer to make effective slides. Often slides are overloaded because those who create them think that their work will not be evaluated on its quality, but on the amount of information that is projected. If, on the other hand, your ideas are clear and you are focused…

Talk to everyone like you would talk to each of us!

A bored audience is first and foremost an audience to whom you have not paid attention. When you are in a conversation, you pay attention to the person you are speaking to; you check if he or she is listening to you, if he or she understands you or if he or she agrees… by…

Don’t distribute the printed version of your slides…

When speaking, the ideal presentation medium is one that will strengthen the impact of your key messages to ensure they are remembered! However, the rate a message is retained after 3 days is estimated at around 3%… so choose carefully what you post on your slides because the more information you project, the less it…
