Been asked to put together a presentation? Don’t go straight to PowerPoint. Download this free eBook instead.

Go to PowerPoint Last. Read this eBook first: Simple Steps to a Killer Talk

Have you been asked to put together a talk or presentation for an event?

What’s the first thing you do?

Most likely, you move the mouse pointer over the PowerPoint icon, click and then get busy putting together some slides.

You know how it goes. Heading. Bullet point. Bullet point. Bullet Point.

Or have you ever been at an event when someone delivers a “Death by PowerPoint” presentation? Hundreds of slides with tiny writing which they proceed to read out? They may even say, “Apologies to those at the back of the room, you won’t be able to read this small text.” In truth, the people on the front row will be struggling too.

If you want your talk to stand out. If you want to put together a killer talk then don’t, repeat, don’t go to PowerPoint first. In fact, PowerPoint should be the last thing you open.

My new eBook, “Simple Steps to a Killer Talk”, gives you a better way. Helps you avoid PowerPoint driving your script and becoming your crutch or comfort blanket.

More and more of my clients are asking for help on putting together killer talks, and a recent episode of the Marketing & Finance Podcast on this subject is one of the most popular ever. The feedback on this episode inspired me to write this eBook.

Simple Steps to a Killer Talk

Here’s what you can find in the eBook.

  • Knowing your customer/audience
  • Big Message
  • One liner or jingle
  • Knowledge goals
  • Emotional goals
  • Action goals
  • Segments
  • Blistering opening and memorable close

…and then you can go to PowerPoint.

The eBook guides you through putting together an engaging structure for your talk, including how to use stories to make your audience take action.

PowerPoint will never be your first port of call again.

To download the eBook please click on this link. It’s free and I’ll give you the option of signing up to my “Marketing Made Simple” bulletin. You don’t have to join, but if you enjoy the eBook, I hope you will.

If you want more help putting together a killer talk, I’d be delighted to talk to you some more. Please do get in touch.
