Professional Speakers Who Collaborate with Their Audience are a Notch Up

Dynamic Presentations

Dynamic Presentations

Canned presentations are out. The professional speaker needs to raise his/her level a notch or two or more.

No longer can a speaker show up with a presentation that s/he has delivered elsewhere and just plug it in to a new audience.

No longer can the professional speaker just tweak the nouns, interchange a few illustrations and be ready for his/her next audience.

The speaker needs to be able to change/adapt the presentation for the audience as close to the moment they go on stage as possible. And, if the speaker really wants to be on top of their game, they need to be able to make adjustments DURING the presentation.

That’s right. Tweaking the deck up to the moment that the speaker goes on stage (or as close to that moment as possible) is a given. Being able to adjust the deck, get immediate feedback from the audience and change directions DURING the presentation is definitely a NOTCH up … and not just during the Q & A.

Call it dancing with the listeners or collaborating with the audience.

But how can that be done? Or can it?

I have ideas. I will share in future posts. How do you keep your presentations dynamic? I’ll show you mine if you show me yours. 😎
