Earlier today I had the opportunity to present to a group of new entrepreneurs at Ann Arbor SPARK’s Start Your Own Business. SYOB is a monthly event hosted by the business incubator to help drive new business development. I’m one of the speakers at this day-long event.
How I present was largely driven by corporate experience. What little training I could find, focused on what size fonts to use, color selection, number/length of bullets per screen, and the like. Believe it or not, none of it really had much to do with delivering an impactful message.
You’re in a meeting, 143 slides to go, black font, blue background. Wonderful. So many things to be addressed in “Presentation Zen.”
