Whether you’re telling a story about a product, a service or a plan, key to how effective you are at getting your ideas across is how you present them.
Is presenting in business an art or a skill, espeically today when doing so virtually via a computer screen is increasingly necessary? What more do you need than PowerPoint or Prezi to build and convey your messages?
In an unconference session at the 5th Dell B2B Social Media Huddle on September 24, Richard Garnett, co-founder of Present.me, will lead an afternoon workshop that aims to show you exactly how a combination of your ideas with the right tools can help you tell a compelling story online, not just a good one:
Communicating and Presenting in a Virtual World
How can you change the world online? Especially when science tell us people are four times more motivated to not change! The trick is to understand how our brains work and to communicate accordingly. How can you persuade our logical brains and move our emotional brains through the art of presenting? What makes pictures so powerful and how can you paint them (with or without PowerPoint)? Why is it so much more effective to watch you talking than read your writing? What are the online tools for doing all of the above easily and cheaply?
A professional actor for 15 years – TV, film, and theatre including the West End, Broadway, and lead roles for the Royal Shakespeare Co – Richard Garnett co-founded Present.me in May 2012.
Present.me is an online tool that lets you combine slides or images with a webcam video of a presenter, side by side on the screen at the same time, available to be viewed in either a public or private space, and on demand, at the convenience of the viewer.
