10 Top Tips to improve your presentation skills

About this Guide

Ask a colleague what’s the first thing they think of when they’re asked to do a company presentation, and two words frequently come to mind: dread and PowerPoint.

It shouldn’t be the case, but so many people fear making company presentations. Perhaps because the stakes can be so high, when getting it wrong can lose you your audience, sink your project and damage your reputation. Neither should PowerPoint be one of the first things that come to mind, though it does. After all, it’s just a channel for the message being presented, and it’s the message that’s key, not the channel.

To help people improve their presentation skills, to ditch the fear and learn how to present a killer pitch, we asked one of the best in the business, Simon Morton to present a Poppulo webinar ‘Effective Presentation Techniques: What you need to know’.

It was a phenomenal success because of his incredible insight and brilliant delivery. Above all, his practical takeaways will transform your internal presentations and how you think about them. Just one tip to never forget when you might be fretting about how your presentation looks: “Presentations don’t fail because they’re not pretty enough – they fail because the message isn’t clear enough”.

In these Top Tips extracted from Simon’s Poppulo webinar, you will learn where you need to focus and how to do it – and most importantly, what to avoid.
