HOW TO BRING DATA HEAVY PRESENTATIONS TO LIFE

June 23rd, 2016 by Matt

Data heavy presentations are boring…

That’s what we hear frustrated presenters tell us all the time. They want to give a good presentation, they want to make a point, or prove a theory or trend but the only thing they have to back it up is boring, dry data.

Or so they think…

Here at Eyeful we love a good graph! And I’m not talking about just designing it so it looks like one of the nicest graphs you’ve ever set eyes on.

rsz_graph

We know if your delivering a presentation that relies on data as a part of it, then that data is part of a story and if working it into your presentations in an interesting and engaging way is something that interests you, then you’re in luck…

As this is what Eyeful MD Simon Morton has been discussing with Grant Leboff in his latest venture in front of the Sticky Marketing audience…

If you would really like to get some in-depth advice on dealing with data you should consider checking out our Advanced PowerPoint Training module on Valuable Visuals. This module focuses specifically on the secrets behind powerful graphics; how to turn data into a visual story and when (and when not) to use infographics as a way to deliver your data.

Valuable Visuals is just one module that sits in our all-encompassing range that cover the three stages of presentation creation: Think, Act and Deliver.

EURO 2016: THE FOOTBALL MANAGER’S PRESENTATION EXPERT HANDBOOK

June 23rd, 2016 by Matt

I’ve been trying really hard not to write a football related article, but let’s be honest it was never going to happen… I’m a football obsessed, Derby County season ticket holding bloke, who lives in Leicester, the venue for the greatest sporting upset in the history of football…and of course the home of the best presentation design company in Europe…

So with the excitement that comes with England (and nearly every other home nation) qualifying for a major tournament – well, there was little chance I could avoid it for long.

My imagination started to kick off late last week in the run up to the recent matches: the press were going crazy about what formation and team Roy Hodgson would pick.

Poor old Roy doesn’t always get the best press and he was getting a bit of stick, which left me imaging a rather awkward pre-match team talk (insert suitably hazy dream-sequence here)…

Unprepared and a little unsure of who is actually in the squad, Roy turns up half an hour before kick off. Standing next to a hastily arranged whiteboard, he asks the bored-looking players, “hands up if you’re a defender?”

He nods sagely, ignores the response, and launches into his aged corporate FA PowerPoint…

Right lads, we are England… We won the World Cup 50 years ago so we must be great.

Here’s a lovely slide on the structure of the FA; we’ve got that bloke who used to work for the BBC at the top, then some other blokes, then there’s me (I love that photo of me…..that’s Lake Geneva in the background)….and then there’s you lot…

So today, we’re playing football and what I want you to do, is play really, really well and er, score more goals than the opposition. Actually, who are we playing today?

OK, so you get the picture – a rather farcical teamtalk that would be breaking every rule in the Football Managers’ Presentation Expert Handbook – if such a thing existed.

But what’s incredibly concerning about this absurd scenario is that it’s happening in boardrooms on a daily basis – EVERYWHERE!

Perhaps it’s time for business presenters to take a leaf out of the The Football Managers’ Presentation Expert Handbook, when it comes to their own presentations?

rsz_2thumbnail_book

You see, according to this mythical guide, football managers will (and business presenters like you should)…

Focus on objectives – Possibly using a format like Eyeful’s “Must, Intend, Like” structure. Winning might be the ultimate objective, but a good performance, and doing the basics well, is the bare minimum.

Research the opposition – Managers will scout the opposition (whilst you should analyse your audience, perhaps with an audience heatmap).

Plan tactics – Based on their scouting, managers will set their team up for the best chance of success (you should use your audience analysis to plan the right angle & tone that’ll have the most impact on your audience).

Use a story – Managers will use past victories to inspire players (whilst you can tap into the power of previous success stories, and customer testimonials to strengthen your key messages and inspire confidence in your audience).

Think about structure – Out of this comes a formation for the manager (and a logical structure to deliver your presentation in).

Deliver their message clearly – We all know the average intelligence of a professional footballer! Managers will use what we call a Blended Presenting approach, where they’ll probably deliver their messages using a mixture of whiteboard, video and even PowerPoint in order to get their message understood and retained (you too shouldn’t be afraid of using a mix of presentation tools – it’s all about what works best for your audience).

Unfortunately, The Football Managers’ Presentation Expert Handbook doesn’t actually exist, but the ideas mentioned in it do, and can all be found in Eyeful’s suite of modular presentation training…

Our modules don’t have a lot to do with football, but they certainly will show you how to create presentations that are way more effective at getting the results you need.

Speaking of results, here’s to England (and all the home nations) doing well in their next matches. Hopefully Roy and the other managers have all been studying their copies of The Football Managers’ Presentation Expert Handbook and will all soon be delivering some inspiring teamtalks!

But from everyone at Eyeful – COME ON ENGLAND!

EURO 2016 – IT’S NOT ABOUT THE JOURNEY, IT’S ABOUT THE MOMENT OF TRUTH

June 10th, 2016 by Simon

Much has been made of my lack of football knowledge by friends in and outside of work.  I manage to bluff my way through the occasional pub conversation with a well-timed “What about that Jamie Vardy, eh?”…but that’s about as far as it goes.

Yet, like millions across Europe, I’m finding myself getting pulled along with the excitement of Euro 2016 as we prepare for the big kick off in Paris this evening (pun intended).  For reasons I don’t fully understand, most of the home nations are in play so there is a palpable sense of anticipation wherever you happen to be at the moment (sorry Scotland).

I completely understand – the Euros are a very big deal in football terms and the culmination of a lot of hard work, stress and anxiety for both team and fans alike (yes, even if one of the ‘obstacles’ in your way was San Marino).  Simply qualifying and having the opportunity to demonstrate your abilities on this stage is a big deal…and certainly not a given:

Yet all the hard work, injury worries, ‘kiss and tell’ tabloid stories and the stress that each team has battled thus far has just been a journey to today.  As each team takes to the pitch, they will no doubt take time to reflect on the hard work put in to date but also recognise that when they cross that white line, their Moment of Truth has arrived.  Fans, journalists, critics, family and the players themselves will put all the stresses and strains of the journey behind them and judge success or failure on what happens in the next 90 minutes on the pitch.

It’s their Moment of Truth.

We talk a lot about the Moment of Truth in business presentations.  In much the same way as a high profile football tournament, all the hard work, long days and sleepless nights aren’t worth a jot if you don’t perform on the day.  Similarly, you and your presentation message will have it’s own set of ‘supporters’ within your business – stakeholders who want to see you succeed.

The Moment of Truth doesn’t allow time for excuses – this is about delivering results for you…and your supporters.

Getting the result you deserve is about being prepared, confident and focused on the prize.  In football terms, this might be getting through to the next round.  In business, it might be winning the pitch, securing funding or selling a new idea into your business.

No matter what the end result, it all boils down to the Moment of Truth.

So if England run out on the pitch tomorrow night looking tired, confused and with no clear plan in place, I for one will be disappointed.  More importantly, my football fanatic friends (the real supporters) will be devastated.  Similarly, if you fail to deliver a clear, engaging and valuable presentation, your audience will disengage and your supporters will be left frustrated and disheartened (and all your combined hard work will have gone to waste).

The impact of failing to deliver at the Moment of Truth is seismic.  Don’t go into your next presentation half-hearted – when that happens, nobody wins.

Good luck at your next Moment of Truth, Oh, and enjoy the football!

BREAKING NEWS: PREZI BUSINESS GOES LIVE

June 7th, 2016 by Matt

rsz_win_-_inserting_something

News broke today in the presentation technology world of a brand new version of Prezi – called Prezi Business… Could this be the PowerPoint alternative everyone’s been waiting for?

This new version of the platform that’s been around for 7 years includes several interesting new features over and above the standard Prezi Membership Licenses …

Collaboration
“Build your Prezis together in real time, even when you’re continents apart.”

Those of you that read our review of PowerPoint 2016 will know this is a sore subject after the quite frankly abject let down of Office 2016’s extremely poor collaboration offering. The difference here though is that whilst desktop creation of Prezi’s is possible, for most end users it will always be a cloud based platform, so in theory this could be a bit of game changer.

Present Anywhere
“Any time, on any device. Send a link to share your prezi in crisp HD with anyone in the world—no third-party screen-sharing software needed.”

A nice feature and a much needed move to keep up with PowerPoint which has had features such as Present Online, convert to Video and Tablet Apps all for quite some time. One word of warning, a presentation is an aid for a presenter, if an audience gets the full story from the presentation alone you might want to review how much text is on each slide/frame! Make sure you take advantage of Prezi’s ability to add voiceover clips to your presentation.

Analytics
“Know who views your prezi, which parts of it, and for how long. Then target your message to the right people at the right time. Track your team’s performance in real time. Use the competitive sales data to fire up productivity and motivation.”

Again another nice feature that plays to Prezi’s strength of being an online presentation tool. With other web based communication platforms entering the scene such as Turtl, adding analytics is an essential move.

If the platform really does tell you who has viewed your Prezi then this is some extremely powerful information in the hands of the sales presenter and it’s something that PowerPoint can’t achieve at present. One for the Office development team at Microsoft to pick up on, we think…

Interactivity
“Prezi Business lets you adapt your pitch on the fly to address what matters to each customer. Skip forward, explore a side topic, or jump back to review—all without flipping through slides.”

Now this is really something, this is essentially custom shows for Prezi. But first, Prezi’s navigation has always been something of a myth…

The truth about Prezi…

Ok, this isn’t some big bad reveal, but if you think Prezi is anything massively different to PowerPoint that’s simply not the case…

Prezi is canvas based and gives you free reign to roam around…

This is very true, but with content essentially being able to be hidden in a microdot, it would take some serious practice and time for a presenter to learn and remember where exactly to zoom into to find the content. It might well end up not being exactly the slickest and smoothest experience.

This rather unstructured approach leads to most people putting content into frames, which are essentially slides. The frames are numbered (like slides) and each time you click forward you travel to the next frame – sound familiar?

Prezi Business doesn’t change this. But with the addition of interactivity it really does improve the experience, as just like in PowerPoint’s custom shows, you can now click into further detail if you want to… thus avoiding frames that you might decide not to show during the presentation.

The fact is though PowerPoint has had interactivity and the option to navigate around slides like a website for over 10 years. So whilst this is most definitely an improvement it was badly needed to just to keep up…

To summarise…

It’s important to remember that Eyeful are not simply a Prezi or PowerPoint presentation design company, we are the presentation experts…

We believe effective, result winning presentations start with proper planning, and strong and effective messages in place.

Whether it be Prezi, PowerPoint, Keynote or whatever tool you use to create and deliver in, these tools aren’t going to help you create a great presentation on their own.

It’s good to see Prezi evolving, most of the business features added are to keep up with programs such as PowerPoint, a couple of which now set Prezi slightly ahead (in a couple of areas) of Microsoft’s flagship program…

But with the Business License coming in at a reported $50 per month, you’re certainly paying for them – whether it’s worth it or not, is up to you…

If you have an important presentation on the horizon and would like to make sure it gets you the result you need (and using whatever technology is most appropriate), please do just get in touch.

WHEN GREAT PRESENTATIONS LEAD TO POWERFUL VIDEO ASSETS

June 2nd, 2016 by Matt

I was speedily going through my daily mounds of emails yesterday when something from the folks at Marketing Profs caught my eye… an article with “10 Tips for Adding Video to Your Digital Marketing Mix”.

As a presentation design company that creates a serious amount of marketing presentations and indeed marketing videos the article really interested me…

Video is something we’re increasingly involved in here at Eyeful and a medium we certainly believe in…

The article is a pretty good read and quite a comprehensive guide as to not only why using video in your marketing mix is a good idea, but also how to structure a bit of a plan around creating it and distributing it after.

As I’m not the plagiarist type, I won’t be copy and pasting the whole 5 pages into this blog! But I will share a high level snapshot of what the tips are…

1. Map the customer journey first
2. Identify how video can enhance the customer journey
3. Set specific goals for your program and videos
4. Create a video promotion rollout plan that meshes with other channel planning and processes
5. Audit your video content and related assets
6. Shine the spotlight on employees and customers
7. Choose your hosting platforms
8. Get your gear and set up your studio
9. Use video behaviours to trigger other messaging
10. Determine your success metrics and monitor results

Needless to say the article goes a lot deeper into these points and if you’re considering using video in your marketing it’s a really insightful place to start.

We take a very similar approach to creating powerful and effective presentations.

We planned this exactly as we would a presentation…

Take our homepage video Eyeful in 90(ish) seconds as an example… this has had over 1000 plays in just a few months…

We planned this video using the same tried and trusted presentation optimisation methodology we apply to all of our customer’s presentations…

-We profiled our audience
-Considered our objectives
-Planned our message and structure accordingly
-Wrote a script
-Storyboarded the visual journey
-Before then creating the video content using little more than PowerPoint

This hard work in planning makes it easy to create a powerful videos…

It’s actually very straight forward to take any presentation and turn it into a video file. This is an obvious course of action if you’ve invested a lot of time, effort and energy into carefully creating an effective presentation in the first place.

But, and I must stress this, it is only an approach worth taking if your presentation really is as good as it can be. There’s little point in turning a horrible mess of bullet points into a video as who would want to watch that!

But if you have created an excellent presentation, one to the standard like Eyeful could create for you, then there really is no point in keeping those strong, powerful messages hidden away on a static PowerPoint when they can be automated to keep delivering your message 24/7…

Other videos we create include landing page messaging, such as A Short Guide To Eyeful’s Training which sits on our main Presentation Training page.

And we also create videos for specific marketing campaigns such as, How To Dodge A Presentation Curveball which was embedded in an email campaign to show how we can support creative agencies as their PowerPoint experts.

Again, we approached the creation of each of these mini movies in the same we would in creating a presentation that gets results…

If you’d like to find out more about Eyeful could help you with your presentation needs (or taking a successful presentation and turning it into a powerful video), just give us a ring and one of our expert presentation consultants will guide you through the options available…

Right, I’m off to write a script!

HOW THE SAVIOURS OF THE BOOK CAN SAVE YOUR PRESENTATION

May 19th, 2016 by Matt

I was casually chilling on the sofa on Sunday, my young son Jack cuddling up beside me as some boring factual programme my wife was watching flashed along on the TV – I say boring as I had just enjoyed a rather epic Peppa Pig session…

As the use of adult (normal adult speech not naughty) language reset my brain away from toddler talk, my attention was drawn into the TV show “What Britain Buys” on Channel 4, presented by retail guru Mary Portas.

It was quite an interesting review of the weird and wonderful products that the British public are spending on at the moment from new supermarket food trends, 2000 calorie freekshakes to adults playing with Lego.

Story ThemesBut what caught my attention was the revival of the book… The story starts in 2007 when internet retail giant Amazon launched the Kindle E Reader which sold over half a million units in its first year. This rapid rise saw analysts predicting printed books would be history by 2015…

Britain’s largest chain of bookstores Waterstones came very close to closing, which would have had a terrible chain reaction…

“The greater number of proper stock holding bookshops in the UK would have disappeared. Most independents would have to go with them because publishers would have been impacted, so yes we came within literally a few hours of catastrophe for our industry.” James Daunt MD Waterstones

However, by 2014 Waterstones were breaking even and this year has been the first year to see sales of printed books increase by 3%…

Which, according to Portas is a massive milestone in the revival of the oldest form of written communication…

The resurgence of the book comes down to two key things…

The way in which publishers are now designing book covers and the evolution of the buying experience developed by bookstores such as Waterstones…

And it was these reasons that resonated with my presentation head…

Publishers have been very clever… they’ve repackaged old books with beautiful covers, these are things that you want to have on your coffee table at home. You are now buying something for its aesthetic value as much as the literature inside it.

We are spending more time and money on our design than we ever did before.

Portas: Do you think beautiful covers sell books?

Definitely yeah, I mean no question. You don’t have to pay to read Lady Chatterley’s Lover, if you want to read it on your E Reader, we’ve got to give people a reason to want to own this book and the only reason they’re going to do that is because we make it look absolutely fabulous.
Joanna Prior, MD Penguin

Looks and aesthetics are often something we shy away from here at Eyeful. Our view is that the look and feel of the design of your presentation is only going to get you so far…

We are of the strong opinion that if you’re asking for presentation help, you know there is an underlying issue with your presentation not getting the results your offering deservers.

9 times out of 10, this isn’t because your presentation doesn’t look good enough, it’s because your messaging and structure of your presentation isn’t having an impact on your audience.

And this is the other reason books are making a comeback, bookstores are playing their part by evolving the book buying experience…

I love going to book shops, they’re like my happy place. I like to go and sit and have a coffee, explore the book and it’s nice just have them in your hand to be able to kind of feel the amount of effort that’s gone into it…

Sure this approach is a little bit idealistic, but you can’t knock it if it’s working.

And the same goes for presentations…

If you’re delivering a shab, drab looking bullet point bonanza, you’re giving your audience the same level of thrill and excitement as you get from downloading a book in the app store – yay.

But if you work on your story, your message and create presentation content that’s going to react with your audience and get them thinking – plus give it the Eyeful level of
PowerPoint presentation design…

Then your audience isn’t just going to receive a great piece of communication, they’re going to be wowed by the design in the same way book shoppers enjoy the artistry and tactile nature of new book covers…

And that’s a whole new level of experience for your audience, who having been beaten and bored into submission by years of death by PowerPoint, will be more than blown away by a presenter who has bothered to take their presentation experience to a whole new level of professionalism.

The Eyeful level…

If this has got you in the dual mood of upping your presentation level and a bit of light reading, then here’s the perfect book for you…

3 INNOVATIVE IDEAS FOR YOUR NEXT PRESENTATION

May 10th, 2016 by Matt

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Eyeful’s presentation designers are the best in the business. If you’ve not yet been lucky enough to have one of them work on your presentation, then you are really missing out.

Now I know what you’re thinking, “yeh, sure, whatever… you’re a marketing person and you have to say that…”

Well yes you are correct – however, I ain’t telling any porkies. These guys (and gals) turn boring bullet point ridden PowerPoints into outstanding pieces of graphic design.

Here’s a quick example of a rather splendid corporate presentation they’ve created to prove it!

And they don’t just stick to PowerPoint, occasionally we let them loose on what we call innovation projects, which is where we give them the vaguest of briefs and let them loose on it with a free abandonment that they just don’t get when working within corporate guidelines.

GIF’S ARE GREAT

Helen for example has been experimenting with GIF’s and if you’re familiar with this rather fascinating file format you’ll know it’s never been a more popular format than it is today. As a GIF is actually an image that animates – yep, this juxtaposition of a file format is what the adverts you see all over the internet have been created in – here’s one of our own Helen made earlier:

And it was these re-marketing ads that inspired Helen to experiment:

I’ve been working on lots of marketing GIF banners for Eyeful, so I decided to try to find a way to make them smoother, more complex and quicker to produce…

Looking at the results I’d say Helen succeeded!

TOASTER chameleon2

Truth be told there isn’t a massive need for GIF’s inside business presentations, but there are options worth considering. As you could broadcast your presentation’s strong sticky messaging in the form of a web advert that is in line with your company’s branding.

WORDS ‘IN’ PICTURES

Next up is some artistic innovation that could definitely help take your presentation to a new level as Paula has been experimenting with image based typography…

I was keen to experiment with typography and image elements as they are both heavily used in many presentations. I wanted to see how I could manipulate aspects of them to create innovative artwork that could make an impression on a presentation’s audience.

rsz_1paula_pics

Paula was excited about the prospect of using this style of image and text treatment in future presentations.

I really think this style would be great featured as a title or divider slide in larger presentations. We could easily utilise a client’s image library and corporate font to create these. We could even implement animation where the image could build up around the typography or vice versa.

VERY COOL VIDEO

We round off this innovation inspired blog with a beautifully stylized video by Ed which was created solely in PowerPoint…

I wanted to stretch my knowledge on using PowerPoint as a video creation tool whilst trying to create a flowing story about working with Eyeful.

Ed too was keen to use this on a client presentation!

Businesses could use this as a promotional/marketing video to show off what they can offer to clients and also show them how the operations work within their company.

So there you have it 3 very different types of innovation creations, I hope they open your eyes a little as to what’s possible when it comes to business presentations and corporate messaging.

If we can help at all, you know where we are…

What Do Your Visuals Say About You?

May 6th, 2016 by Matt

A picture paints a thousand words – OUCH! That cliché caused physical pain as I wrote it, but alas it’s true! And never more so than with business presentations…

Without trying to spoil what Simon discusses in detail with Grant Leboff in his latest venture in front of the Sticky Marketing audience…

Your presentation imagery and visuals are really important – I know, obvious right – but you would be surprised by how many people get this wrong, even when they have good ones at their disposal.

Only this morning I was reviewing a recent Presentation Healthcheck that we’ve performed for a really high-end construction company…

Their presentation suffered from all the usual problems, bullet point overload, no mention of the audience or how they would solve their audience’s problem…

But what they did have in abundance were fantastic professional photographs of the work they’d done – however these great images were hidden away at the back of the presentation, in a tiny and none descript way…

Our advice was of course to make a lot more out of them… but the point is, whether you have your own great images, access to a decent image resource or have a design team itching to make a graphic from scratch… you must consider how your audience is going to perceive what they see…

When Provocative Turns Offensive

April 29th, 2016 by Simon

I attended a presentation earlier this week that was so offensive I’m still reeling from it. To pre-empt any ‘presentation prima donna’ accusations, the offence was not caused by the awful visuals, a blizzard of bullets or overuse of animation – frankly, this comes with the territory and you become hardened to such things.

Nope – the offence was caused by the crass use of a global human catastrophe to help demonstrate a particular business point.  Let me put this into context… The presenter told a story (not something we would normally complain about) about how the combination of being made redundant, then a few days later the 9-11 tragedy happening made him reassess his life and career, he would then travel the world and discover the product idea that launched his business and made it what it is today…

At least that’s how most presenters would tell the story.

But alas this chap wanted to make an impact…and an impact he made. The story was told in a vulgar tone, with images of planes crashing into the World Trade Centres as well as a jokey picture of Osama Bin Laden with a speech bubble telling him to set his own business up…

Up until this point it had been a fairly successful event. but when this happened the audience squirmed. The room went horribly quiet. The presenter, instantly recognised that he’d overstepped the mark, but it was too late, he was at the point of no return and looked ashen faced. To say he’d totally misread the audience was an understatement and, more importantly, not one of them (myself included) was prepared to throw him a lifeline of an encouraging nod of the head, or a slight smile. He never recovered and spent a painful 20 minutes on stage, the audience letting him squirm with absolutely no compassion whatsoever.

Now I wager that this offensive presentation probably started as a much more innocent brainwave. I’m sure the presenter had just wanted to rock the boat a bit and provoke a bit of a reaction from a semi-comatose conference audience – to stand out and be remembered.

The problem is that the lure of provocation eclipsed any proper consideration of the audience, his objectives or the key presentation message.

Provocation and shaking things up is fine, as long as it’s done in the right way and for the right reasons.  If it doesn’t help your audience to follow your call to action – or worse still, such as in this case, makes them less likely – then what’s the point?

Now don’t get me wrong – I’ve long been a fan of grabbing the attention of a presentation audience early on in the process. Done properly, it turns ‘ye olde presentation rules’ on their head and gives both presenter and audience license to engage in a much more powerful way. The resulting engagement ensures everyone gets more out of the process – the audience becomes invested in the message being shared (and thus more likely to do something as a result) and the presenter isn’t having to compensate for what is often a terribly dull experience for them and the people in front of them.Story Season 1

More importantly, turning things on their head is a pretty easy thing to do.

After all, the bar is set pretty low for most credentials presentations delivered today. The vast majority follow the same old opening structure – anodyne title slide, a dull agenda followed by a handful of slides sharing company information in mind-numbing detail (more than often accompanied with a world map showing office locations using pin icons).

Simply stepping away from this engagement sapping opening and instead sharing an insight that demonstrates an understanding of your audience’s issues already puts you head and shoulders above your fellow presenters.

No need for fireworks, crass provocation or bawdy humour. The reality is that simply making your next presentation audience centric will ensure you stand out. So stop thinking of clever high impact ‘tricks’ or hooks and focus on the most important stuff first – message, structure and call to action. Do this right and your audience will remember you for all the RIGHT reasons…
