Present without PowerPoint! Can you, would you? (Hosted by TMN)
As part of our brand new partnership with Training Magazine Network, we are now featuring events presented by Presentation Guild members on the TMN site!
Too many presenters focus on how their presentation is going to LOOK, and not enough to how it SOUNDS. Can you blow people’s minds with just the words you say? It turns out that presenters can learn a lot from songwriters. Songwriters create beautiful music using writing techniques to ensure that what they create sounds great, long before they think about creating the music video or stage lighting.
This is exactly how we should approach presentation writing, words first, visuals last. In this session, we’ll explore this correlation and show you how to put slides in their proper place.
We’ll take a deep dive into:
- Structure – How to apply a repeatable award-winning structure to your presentations
- Melody – How to write a “chorus” for your presentation, and apply analogies and stories to hook the ear of your listener
- Lyrics – How to refine your words to ensure your performance is flawless
- Note: This webinar is delivered without any slides!
