The 2012 Business Presentation Survey – Ready For Your Input!

Thursday, August 30th, 2012 by Simon Morton

It’s with great delight that we announce the official launch of the 2012 Business Presentation Survey.  We’re delighted for a few reasons…

It would seem to be the only survey that asks real business presentation users about the things that really matter to them:

  • What tools are they using day in, day out to deliver their presentations?
  • What frustrates them?
  • What are their guilty secrets around the use of tools such as PowerPoint and Keynote?
  • How has new technology impacted the way they deliver presentations?
  • Where do they see the future of presentations?

We last conducted this survey way back in 2010 and some of the results were quite startling.  For example, we found out that 72% of businesses rarely review their presentations.  The cynical amongst you will have noted that this is just the sort of statistic that we, as presentation specialists, would (and do) love to bandy about.

But there’s another way to look at this, what would happen if 72% of people never looked in the mirror before leaving for work? How many business conversations would be lost in a cloud of ‘I wonder if he knows that he has a rip in his trousers? Would it be rude to tell him? Where on Earth do you buy underwear that colour?’

Not reviewing your presentations can have exactly the same effect or worse ‘Has this company not done a single thing of note since 2009? Have they bought the wrong presentation? Wow, there are a lot of perms in that office background image!

So, dear business presenter, we ask you to click here to complete this important survey.  We promise will only take five minutes of your time (and we’re offering some prizes to make it worth your while!).

Thanks in advance for your help…
