What's Your Presentation Style?

April 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 181

Like most things in life there is more than one way to achieve it, this is as true with presenting as anything else. Each year we create a huge variety of presentations all of which have different briefs and outcomes; therefore we approach every presentation differently applying our own style to each.

However there are recognized PowerPoint design methods, I'm going to talk briefly about 3 of them and describe their benefits.

The Takahashi Method

This method uses only text or an image on each slide. Each slide will only contain two or three short words in very large text or a full screen image. The aim is to deliver a very clear impactful message in a short amount of time, which forces the audience to listen to the speaker since the slides alone do not give insight into the content of the presentation.

Although the presenter will have a lot more slides than usual, the time spent on each slide will be relatively short.

The Godin Method

The result of this method is to let the speaker do the talking and the slides do the showing. The aim is to focus on selecting compelling images to enhance your messages and to better convey thoughts and ideas. When you use this message you are using the image-centric slides to add clarification and significance to engage the audience more in your presentation.

The relationship between your content and imagery will have emotional benefits and lasting impressions.

The Monta Method

This method takes it inspiration from the Japanese game show host Monta Mino. Presenters use a simple question and answer format on their slides. Questions are posed to the audience and are kept hidden on the slide until answers are put forward. This is a very interactive method of presenting; it's highly engaging and will add emotional connections between you and your audience.

This is a very sociable method of presenting and may not be appropriate all the time or for use as a whole presentation, but can be used occasionally during the course of your presentation to break things up and get the audience involved.

As you can see a there are a variety of methods all with great benefits to presenting, and everyone has there own presentation style and methods to help make your next presentation memorable.
