5 Things Every Presenter Needs To Know About People

Yeah yeah.. we have heard it a lot! Haven’t we? but we still make the same mistakes. Oh I hear you, we are humans!

And yes, I have made mistakes too. As the technology advances and brings people closer to make a digital village, the use of tools to connect has risen rapidly. With this rise, we, as users, have evolved, and have become more savvy and pro. But one tool, which makes others yawn, is presentations. We need them (most of the time we do not) and we kill people with them.

We make heavy presentations to drive a simple point. Once I saw a 13 page deck on, “planning a team outing!” I was appalled and was laughing and here is the best part – the Executive appreciated it! For god’s sake, we wasted so much time and spare a thought for the person who had to make it!

However there is a bigger problem out there. Especially when the presentations are made, they are made keeping in mind the concept, idea, problem etc. No-one, no-one thinks about the audience. Surprised?!

Watch this six minutes video that talks about five things you need to know about people.
