HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT PRESENTATION SOFTWARE

Friday, September 9th, 2016 by Matt<

For so long presentation designers and presenters across our fine land have relied on one tool to create and deliver their presentations – PowerPoint.

And a great tool it is. But there are lots of presentation software available, PowerPoint, Keynote, Prezi and lots of different type of presentations; formal, interactive, video, device presentations… the list is endless.

Thankfully Simon Morton (presentation expert and CEO of this presentation design company) discusses all the presentation tools available and when to use them in his latest interview with Sticky Marketing’s Grant Leboff…

What Do Your Visuals Say About You?

Friday, 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…

THE SIMPLE GUIDE TO CLEANSING COMPLEX PRESENTATIONS

Tuesday, April 12th, 2016 by Matt<

WHAT?
Simon Morton, Eyeful’s illustrious MD and author of the acclaimed The Presentation Lab book, has once again made his regular foray into the video studio of Sticky Marketing’s Grant Leboff.

This time Grant has been quizzing Simon on ways to simplify really complex presentation messages.

HOW?
Simon reveals two great and easy to use techniques from his book that you can apply to your own presentations to make them a whole lot less cluttered and more structured.  They’re techniques that can be applied outside of presentations too – even in blog posts!

WHY?
To help you!

If you create any kind of PowerPoint presentation design, this interview will give you the advice you need to avoid content clutter and overloaded, confusing and ultimately very dry presentations.

But if you create technical or scientific presentations and struggle to keep slides focused and not stuffed full of dry detail – then this video is an absolute must see…

The very best of luck in cleansing your complex presentations, it’s not the easiest thing to do so we really hope the methods that Simon has shared prove useful…

If you would like to learn the techniques mentioned above in more detail, then check out our CLEARING THE DECKS module from our full suite of Think, Act & Deliver presentation training.

THE SLIDES ARE THE PRESENTATION

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016 by Matt<

Eyeful’s MD Simon Morton has once again headed off to Grant Leboff’s Sticky Marketing studio for another helpful interview…

This time, Simon tackles the age old problem of when presenters start creating their presentations by opening up PowerPoint – which is pretty much the biggest ‘no, no’ when it comes to creating presentations.

Grant isn’t afraid to push Simon on the subject, so be prepared to take notes as your guaranteed to learn a whole heap about presentation planning and best practice.
