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.

Happy Holidays!

The ZE TIPS are going on vacation. We wish you excellent end-of-the year celebrations. Rendez-vous on the 8th of January for more advice at the service of your presentations and your leadership!

How to increase the credibility of your statements?

If you are asked to answer by “yes” or “no” to a series of statements, there are two possibilities: either you know the subject and it is easy to answer, or you don’t, in which case you’ll try to assess the plausibility of the proposed statements. Indeed there’s a whole circuitry in our brains for…

Back to work good resolutions

Going back to work is often the time for making resolutions that don’t last long. Why is it that despite our best will, our old demons resurface so quickly and take precedence over our most resolute decisions? Making changes is not so simple, and generally good will isn’t enough. To make a change stick, it’s…

Take a vacation

It is time for Ze advisors to go reenergize themselves and it will do you some good too. In any case, a good presentation doesn’t limit itself to a finite list of practical tips. Because you’ll always need a sharp, alert and open mind for the advice to be be meaningful. But before setting a…

Avoid neither seen nor read

To convey our ideas, we have two main tools at our disposal. First, we have a word processing tool (Word, Page, Writer…), which allows us to create documents to be read. And then, we have software to create the presentation (PowerPoint, Keynote, Presentation…), which allows us to design the slides intended to be viewed. These…

To be understood, be concrete

For an audience to agree with your remarks, it is essential that it gets a quick mental picture of your idea. For this purpose it is imperative to be concrete. Too often, speakers, wanting to show that they have mastered their subject, wrongly develop complex concepts that only delay the moment when the listener understands…

3 reasons for using Post-its® to prepare your presentations

We regularly repeat that the first pitfall to avoid, when preparing a presentation, is to throw yourself into PowerPoint. The tool is efficient for designing slides but it is totally ineffective in gathering and organizing ideas or in working as a team. To boost the preparation phase, the use of Post-its is much more pertinent.…

Let your presentation rest

Gathering information and making a presentation in front of an audience occupies 40 million people worldwide everyday. Yet the facts, figures and analyses, as relevant as they may be, are not enough to capture attention and persuade an audience. What story will serve as a framework? Which choices for the graphic design? What position to…

Post images that make sense

Images have a considerable impact. A study shows that if an image is associated with a message, it is seven times more likely that the message will be remembered. This fact is widely circulated in training courses on slide design. Indeed, this is how we often recognize people coming from these training courses…they put images…
