I need your Presentation Experience

The Project Manager who Smiled

The Lazy Project Manager Podcast

Catsuits and Parachutes



So here's the thing - I have, as it turn out, two slightly unexpected weeks free (before I start a new and exciting job) and I thought 'why not write a book?' - and why not indeed.

But that isn't too long so I then decided a) I would write a book where I had a lot of the material already and b) I would go and get some help from all the 'Lazy PM' fans out there in the world (see 'productive laziness' in action).

I decided to write a small book based on my very popular 'A Presentation on Presentations' - as the blurb says 'We aren’t born to be professional level presenters but through this entertaining presentation the ‘rights’ and ‘wrongs’ of good presentations are explored along with a ‘how to prepare’ for that all important event. With a few simple lessons taught through the very medium of ‘presentation’ the audience will take away some great ideas for improving their own technique and ‘death by PowerPoint’ is definitely not the outcome'.

And this is where I need your help.

I need your stories of presentation experience - the good, the bad, and the really ugly. I need your top tips for what makes a great presentation. I need anything that you feel would add to the value of this book to help other people deliver better presentations in the future - hey, you might be in the audience so it is really in your own best interests.

If it is a top tip leave you name and the tip in reply to this post, in the comment box - or if it is a longer story then contact me and I will let you have my email to send me your story/experience that way.

But I am moving fast - the book will be done by 14th January so if you want to share, then share today!

Thank you - Peter

A presentation in one or more story formats is a great way of keeping audience interested but the story has to be relevant, exciting and related to what you want to convey.
Funny cartoons, quotes, images are also effective.
Too much of a written script is boring, same is with too many charts bar, pie, line etc.
