The WALNUT Presentation Strategy™
Create and deliver engaging slide presentations
The purpose of this workshop is to understand and apply the elements necessary to create and deliver an engaging slide presentation. The ability to effectively communicate data is a specialized communication skill. The communication strategy for using data is not just about deciding what content needs to be transferred. More importantly, it is about deciding what strategy will allow the audience to understand, remember and have the ability to apply the information. In this course, we will focus on how to use strategic communication to develop messages, so they are memorable and useful (not just a “data dump”). We will present and guide participants through the practice of proven communication strategies and adult learning principles
Get your audience to focus
When you develop slides to present data, it’s not just about deciding what content you need to transfer. The more important task is to decide what strategy will allow the audience to understand, remember, and have the ability to apply the information. You must get your audience to focus on your presentation. If you want that to happen, your slides and presentation must be memorable and useful and not just a data dump. You must strive to transform your audience with meaning and usefulness, not just inform them with facts.
Give more successful slide presentations
This course provides a simple framework and toolbox to apply to any presentation. Often, you don’t get a lot of time to really prepare the presentation, as you would like. The Walnut Presentation Strategy™ provides a handy shortcut to guide you to the most important elements of a successful slide presentation.
