When people are asked about a great presentation they have seen, many have difficulties remembering. The plain truth is most presentations are dead boring, there is nothing special about them and they are not memorable.
People don’t want to attend, can’t wait to leave, and forget the presentation as well as the presenter the moment they leave the room.
So, the billion dollar question is how can we make OUR presentations memorable?
First things first.
Creating a presentation is an ART, NOT a mechanical task. A successful presentation is a memorable one, and a memorable presentation is like a performance. It has ebbs and flows. It dazzles, surprises and engages your audience. It motivates, inspires, educates or creates desire. Your presentation is an art, and you are a performer.
5 things you can do to make your next presentation memorable:
Researchers tell us that now, in the age of digital technology, the average adult’s attention span is only between 8 to 12 seconds. That’s not long.
Having interactive activities in your presentation refocuses your audience and keeps them engaged.
People will not always remember what they see or hear, but they will always remember something they have been a part of.
Using a variety of materials and activities that involve as many of the five senses as you can will ensure that your presentation is fun and engaging for everyone. It will be a ‘memorable experience.
