Be human

Voltaire said that "Perfection is the enemy of the good." This is true when it comes to presentations and probably the biggest obstacle.

More than anything, your audience wants to connect with you as a person. To accomplish this:

  1. Familiarise yourself with your presentation, but don't memorise it.
  2. Practice just enough to feel confident that you know your structure, the major points, and overall flow.
  3. If you make a mistake, don't apologise or act flustered; just collect yourself and continue.

Qualities of a great presentation

Qualities of a great presentation

Great presentations are rare. Presenters often fail to make an impact, not because of what they're presenting but because of how they're delivering it.

An excellent presentation is about how well you engage your audience. It consists of three specific qualities.

  • A balance between structure and improvisation.
  • Generosity. Offering your audience something of value.
  • Relatable.

Be generous

Address these two key questions:

  • What do you want to accomplish by delivering your presentation? If you are presenting a product to a customer, do you want to make the sale to meet your quota, or do you believe your product will make their life better? Any goal that does not serve your audience or does not offer them something valuable should be secondary.
  • What are you willing to do about it? Place yourself in your audience's shoes and share your message clearly and understandably.

Be balanced

To deliver a presentation that will engage your audience, you need to balance structure (preparation) and improvisation (flexibility).

  • Structure. Think about the most pressing concern of your audience, and how you can best address it. Then use that to organise your message logically. (e.g., problem, opportunity, solution, feasibility, recommendation, etc.)
  • Improvisation. Things will come up during your presentation. You must be able to respond to your audience in the moment.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

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!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

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.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

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!
