Christina DesMarais walks us through her techniques to keeping your audience wide awake and engaged in your presentation in her article for Inc.com. Read my top takeaways below.
- Use visual images and explanatory metaphors to convey your message rather than bulleted text, these methods of ‘painting a picture’ are scientifically proven to be more memorable
- Weave a story and create a setting for your presentation that your audience can carry with them beyond your talk
- Connect on a personal level with your listeners by setting your talk up as a dialogue rather than a monolog
