Basic Presentation Skills: Creating a Presentation

Have you ever finished creating a presentation, only to realize later that you either have too much content or that most of it is not relevant? Business professionals create presentations for numerous reasons such as sharing information with stakeholders, persuading individuals or teams for action, pitching for sales to prospective clients and for the purpose of instruction or training. Again, you could make a face-to-face presentation or over a virtual medium. Whatever may be the reason, a presentation always has a purpose that is linked to the audience—the audience is meant to either just absorb the information or act upon it. Hence, it is important that the presenter captures the audience’s interest, develop their understanding and get them to act based on the presentation’s objectives. Creating an effective presentation involves step-by-step planning to meet the presentation’s objectives. After making a presentation, if the audience’s reaction made you feel that your presentation did not really serve its purpose, it is an indication that you have not planned your presentation. In this course, you will learn to determine your audience profile and needs by considering various factors such as demographics, commonalities, relatedness to the topic, aligning to the objectives and other hygiene factors. Further, you will also examine factors that influence the aesthetics of the presentation such as the use of text and images.
