A dynamic speaker does not need a tool to get his point across. Yet, the right tool can engage his audience with images illustrated by stories that create a longer lasting impact.
How do you make this happen? Build a strong, professional PowerPoint design that include personal tales as part of the message. PowerPoint is a device to illustrate and provoke thoughtful ideas.
PowerPoint As A Story Teller
Taking a cue from the TED Talk expert, Carmine Gallo, in his Forbes article, Gallo advises speakers to use PowerPoint to tell stories with pictures and possibly even a small bit of animation. Facts go down easier with entertainment and humor. Unleash the inner Mark Twain when creating your PowerPoint design.
Dynamic speakers engage the audience, not just by "speaking at them," but by bringing the audience into the presentation. To accomplish--or breach--the gap between the audience and speaker, reach out. Ask a question or two that will grab the audience. Use PowerPoint slides to enlist participation. This will strengthen the relationship between the speaker and attendees.
Create Alternative Conclusion Slide
Create a "What if?" slide. The wonder of an unexpected conclusion is just too delicious to ignore. Elicit opinions from the audience.
Make It Personal
Insert a personal story that relates to the subject matter. Nothing connects so well with an audience as an intimate anecdote. A slide from the speaker's home library brings the audience closer still.
The power of a visual aide to illustrate a message is an excellent opportunity make an impact. Take advantage of the moment to reach into the hearts and minds of your audience.
