Present With Insight Workshop

Present With Insight Workshop

 

Make Technical/Financial Content More Engaging

If you are the subject matter expert and have to present to others on your topic, how do you avoid boring them with slide after slide of details?   How do you make it understandable for a wide range of interests?  Plus can you make all this information actually interesting and engaging?

This program is designed to provide you with the process for going beyond sharing information to sharing insight that is useful and relevant for the listening audience.  The two most important tools at our disposal to achieve this how we visually show our information and how we verbally speak to our information.

What You Will Learn:

You will learn how to use four key tools to create slides that are properly laid out to address how the audience understands complex information.  Included in this process are the frameworks that we all use when we visually need to understand any situation.  Best practices in presenting tables, charts and graphs are reviewed. The goal is to create visual slides that are less overwhelming and increase comprehension.

The second half of this session focuses on verbal insight based on how one speaks to their content.  The core of this concept are insight statements and stories that shift us from reporting on information to providing content in a consultative, engaging manner.

When you leave this session you will have learned:

  • Why it is important to shift to verbal and visual insight in how we communicate
  • Six different frameworks of understanding that aid visual insight
  • How to make a PowerPoint slide more meaningful
  • The difference between topic headings and message headings
  • Why more is less when you present and how to identify the excess
  • How to add insight statements that will focus your content and signal to the audience that there is something meaningful coming.
  • Why telling the story behind your information is so powerful
  • 11 best practices for presenting tables, charts and graphs

Who Should Attend:

  • Subject matter experts who give presentations
  • Those who have complex or dense content to share with others and wants to make it more relevant and engaging
  • Those who use PowerPoint to explain concepts that others need to understand
  • Technical or financial professionals who use lots of graphs, charts and diagrams that can be very detailed and overwhelming for the audience

Prep Work Required:

NOTE:  You must bring a fully charged laptop ( that is fully charged for two hours) so you can edit slides.

You will be giving one short presentation during this workshop.  You will be asked to come with three to four slides from a presentation you have delivered before, or will be giving in the future.  The slides you choose should explain a concept (a process, a program, a system, a financial plan, etc.).  You will be given time during the workshop to update these slides and prepare to share them with the group for feedback.  You will need a fully charged (2 hrs) laptop.
