About the Keynote Speech or Workshop
Effective presentations give your audience what they want in the way they want to absorb it, which is why we’re firm believers in the platinum rule of presenting: “Present unto others as they would have you present unto them.” So, how do we know precisely what audiences want? We asked. Twice!
In 2006, we conducted unprecedented research across North America, surveying 2,501 professionals at nonprofits, foundations, government agencies, colleges and universities, and mission-driven businesses. We asked them to talk about in-person presentations: what works, what doesn’t, and why. The results were published in our groundbreaking report, Why Bad Presentations Happen to Good Causes.
In 2020, when almost all presenting moved online due to the pandemic, we updated our research, gathering the newest best practices from over 4,400 respondents in the US and Canada. We published those findings in our report, “Unmuted: What works, what doesn’t, and how we can all do better when working together online.”
Now we’ve combined the learnings from both reports in a two-hour workshop that will help you be a more effective presenter whether you’re working face-to-face or screen-to-screen. Course curriculum includes:
- Top-line research results from both reports
- Audience-driven guidelines for structuring your presentation
- Tips for slide design
- Adapting presentations and delivery specifically for virtual audiences
