3 tips for C-level presentations

Presentations play a pivotal role in achieving corporate targets and getting a promotion. When a professional presents their proposals either to their manager or to a client it is important that their narrative follows a logical structure and captures the audience's attention.

1. Craft a clear structure

Presentations without a clear structure follow a masked path that only the presenter can understand. If the audience is not able to comprehend what the structure of the presentation is, it's because the presenter either didn't have time to organize their work or didn't care enough to organize the content in a way that the audience would be able to understand the process. Without structure, your ideas won't fly. Structure is what empowers thought.

To develop your story, gather as much information as you can around the central idea and sketch down your ideas on yellow sticky notes. Filter the best ideas that support the governing thought and group them by topic. Finally, use an appropriate diagram to illustrate your message.

2. Grab your audience's attention

To gain the attention of your audience, design and present using the technique of contrast. According to this method, compare situations and put emphasis on the difference between them. This technique can be applied both in the creation of the narrative and in the design of the visual aids too.

3. Create a memorable epilogue

Here's your chance to recap your content and emphasize the key message of your narrative. It is not necessary to go over all the points of the presentation in detail again but the audience should know exactly what you are asking them to do. For this reason, create a strong call to action for your audience to understand and act accordingly.

Probably your audience will not remember all the details from the main part of the presentation. But the end of a presentation is important to be precise and targeted.

An effective preparation can lead to success. Take your presentation seriously and prepare properly.
