An Opportunity To Build Trust

Every presentation is an opportunity to build trust with your audience. The cohesiveness of your group presentation is an indicator to your clients of what their relationship will be like working with you.

For many organizations, group presentations are a part of life. Your team may deliver a group pitch to a new client, or perhaps the capstone exercise of your leadership development program includes a series of group presentations to the head of your business unit.

Best Practices: Strategizing In Advance

When you add a group presentation to your calendar, block off time to prepare as a group. Use this time to agree on your audience’s level of knowledge about the topic, your specific goal for the presentation, the main message, the general outline and who will present each section before each of you starts writing your individual components.

This helps you avoid the last-minute stress of trying to fit each of your slides into one cohesive unit.

Best Practices: Group Rehearsals

Before the presentation, make time for a complete run-through, with slides.

Specifically, practice your transitions from one person to the next: For example, " Stacey did a great job talking us through the challenges of entering this new market. Now, I’ll provide a few solutions based on our firm’s expertise."

Use a timer to ensure you are keeping to the allotted time, or set a realistic time limit based on the format of your meeting, so you ensure plenty of time to field questions.

Best Practices: Deliver With Confidence And Authenticity

When speaking in person, position yourself so that you can reference the slides but speak directly to the audience.

Bring your own personality to the presentation. Personal anecdotes that connect to the audience are a terrific way to build trust between the audience and each member of the group presenting.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
