Cliff Atkinson from Sociable Media offers an excellent series on how to improve your presentations.
In previous tutorials he suggested that you tell a story with your presentation and then how to use storyboards to plan your presentation. These tips follow-up on these tutorials and are worth book-marking if you’re nervous about making your first presentation or simply want to improve your technique.
Here’s a snippet from his first tip, “The living brand”:
“In a live presentation, all eyes are on you, and you are actually a living example of your company’s brand. The high quality of your ideas, the compelling story, the interesting visuals, and the level of engagement that you achieve all contribute to a branding experience that the audience will not soon forget.”
