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
The Extreme Presentation™ method is taught in a one-day workshop. During the workshop, participants apply the method to a presentation of their own, and they leave the workshop not just with a firm grasp of the method, but also having worked on and substantially developed a powerful presentation of their own, for their next big meeting.
