The Seven Deadly Sins of Making Presentations. Part 2.
In the first part of our article we looked at the first three deadly sins of a presentation: not defining a goal, looking at your presentation as a PPT document and lack of structure in your presentation. Let’s now look at the last four.
The Seven Deadly Sins of Making Presentations
I often deal with various presentations, both as a consultant helping to prepare them as well as a member of the audience. And I have come to the conclusion that the ability to prepare and deliver presentations does not depend on your position in the company, whether you are a manager or a rank-and-file employee, an analyst working with the customer or a team lead working.
