If your job impact and success depend on making effective presentations, you will have realized that over the past few years audiences have become more distracted, demanding and skeptical. The 40-slide, text-heavy PowerPoint™ presentation just doesn't work anymore (if it ever did). You don't enjoy death by bullet-point, so why should your audience?
It's an extreme presentation challenge, which needs an extreme solution: the Extreme Presentation method.
The Extreme Presentation method is a simple but effective design approach for creating presentations that are clear, convincing, visually captivating - and brief. The approach builds on leading theory and decades of experience designing and delivering presentations. It integrates the five essential elements of an effective presentation:
- LOGIC: the persuasive argument
- RHETORIC: the story that brings the argument to life
- GRAPHICS: the visuals that deliver the evidence convincingly
- POLITICS: the influence methods for persuading the audience
- METRICS: measurement of the presentation's success
