COMPEL YOUR AUDIENCE TO DECISIVE ACTION

TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT

PERSUASIVE SLIDE PRESENTATION SKILLS ARE SKILLS WORTH INVESTING IN.
Senior executives are short on time, need to consume vast amounts of information from direct reports, and are relied on to make huge decisions that can make or break the attainment of business critical goals.
Presentations are the language of business. 

Seventy percent of employed Americans who give presentations agree that presentation skills are critical to their success at work.* And eighty six percent agree that communicating clearly affects their careers and income.*

Deckonomics™️ Training and Development programs deliver hands-on workshops to train teams to develop presentations that spread ideas, drive decisions and close deals.

PRESENTATIONS ARE THE LANGUAGE OF BUSINESS, BUT AT A PRICE.

While presentations are a fact of business — they also consume considerable resources.
  • Poorly structured presentations take multiple rounds to get right, wasting time and money.
  • Over-complicated presentations fail to deliver the impact that could unlock game-changing action.
  • Badly conceived presentations reflect poorly on the presenter.

THE COST OF BAD PRESENTATION HABITS CAN BE STAGGERING.

When presentations aren’t structured & designed properly from the start, the business and team suffers.
  • The brain drain of constant revisions can deteriorate morale. 
  • Multiple iterations can result in ‘frankenstein’ presentations.
  • Ineffective presentations that don’t reflect clear thinking and can erode leadership’s confidence in the presenting team.
  • Over-complicated presentations fail to deliver the emotional impact that creates action, and can prevent important initiatives from moving forward.

TRANSFORM YOUR TEAMS PRESENTATION SKILLS IN 3 STEPS.

To change behavior, you first need to change one’s understanding of how persuasive presentations are constructed, and our 3-step solution is the answer.

First, your team members need to understand the principles and frameworks behind clear & compelling narratives. Second, the team must apply the principles to the work at hand.

Finally, the team must adhere to the training on an ongoing basis until it’s second nature.

ELEVATE YOUR TEAM'S WORK TO BEST-IN-CLASS.

The best presentation is the one whose logic is rendered so simply and clearly that it’s quickly apprehended and compels decisive action or support. 

Great presentations are structured as stories.

“Stories constitute the single most powerful weapon in a leader’s arsenal.”

- Dr. Howard Gardner, professor Harvard University

WHO BENEFITS FROM OUR TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS?

Executives & Team Leaders

Executives and team leaders are responsible for setting and driving the strategic vision of corporate initiatives, and motivating their teams to execute and deliver on that vision to maximize results.

Marketing Teams

Marketing teams must attract the masses through communications that deliver the best possible brand experience, and influence leadership to fund various marketing initiatives aimed at growing the business.

Sales Teams

Sales teams often have limited opportunities to make the best first impression with a new customer or need to demonstrate performance metrics to prove they are conistently delivering value to retain their customer's business.
Great presentations compel decisive action.

"Communication is the transfer of emotion … about getting others to adopt your point of view. If all you want to do is create a file of facts and figures, then cancel the meeting and send in a report."

- Seth Godin, American author and former dot com business executive

HOW MUCH IS A GAME-CHANGING PRESENTATION WORTH? 

Presentations powered by stories are better comprehended, more memorable, and result in the audience adopting new beliefs.
Stories are 22 times more memorable than facts & figures alone. But very few people in business have been trained to develop stories in a way that accelerates decision making.

In a time when holding one’s attention is increasingly difficult, it has never been more important for companies to harness the power of a storytelling structure when developing presentations for both internal and external use.

Story structured presentations take less time to produce and propel the audience to take action sooner. 

Our workshops and presentation support reinforce the 5 core principles of effective presentations: structure, brevity, scannability, memorability, and shareability.
  • What is the value of getting to “Yes” the first time you present to senior leadership?
  • What’s the value of eliminating just one round of revisions and feedback from every presentation deck developed by your team?
  • What is the value of distinguishing you and your team as world class presenters?

A POWERFUL PRESENTATION TRANSFORMS THE STRATEGIC PROCESS.
