Effective business communication - PowerPoint presentation
Whether collaborating with colleagues and partners or presenting a revolutionary idea or product to a group of clients, PowerPoint presentations are a powerful tool that allow professionals to easily communicate ideas, concepts, and principles.
Not only are PowerPoint presentations, sometimes referred to as PPT, effective at clearly communicating certain subjects, but they are relatively easy to create and adapt to one’s personal needs.
Nevertheless, all PowerPoint presentations are not created equally.
Use the following keys to ensure a business presentation hits its mark and proves successful.
1. Build a Script
While some PPT presentations may be solely graphic in nature, most business professionals will need to incorporate some form of text into their pitch. Rather than simply jumping headfirst into a presentation, churning out lackluster text on each page, it is often more effective to script the flow of a presentation before building the actual slides. This will help ensure that the message is clearly carried from the initial slide through to the very end.
When creating a script for a presentation, it is essential to remember that less is more. Long paragraphs and wordy descriptions will leave spectators feeling overwhelmed, in addition to blurring the ideas being presented. Use concise and snappy text to convey the general concept to an audience, elaborating on certain ideas aloud when slides are shown.
