I’m not entitled (well, I probably might be but …) to talk about effective presentation techniques: for this I let you go to one of my favorite sites Presentation Zen.
My contribution here, is that in my corporate experience I daily find (at least) two kind of presentations:
- Real Presentations
- Political Presentations
In Real Presentations, as I wrote, you can surely improve reading Garr Reynolds site (and practicing!)
Political Presentations are a different form of communication. They are those presentations … that will be never presented. They are reports written, usually between big bosses, using Power Point to send three messages:
- If YOU had time, I’d present it;
- even I am very busy;
- … take a look at it and tell me what you think!
No comments about this habit, I just want to suggest to use a more ‘verbose’ way of writing if you need to prepare (for your boss 😉 ) one of them
