Business School Presentations by Stanley K. Ridgley - 1w ago

On the issue of bad voice, much can be said.  But better than the written word are examples. Particularly examples of bad voices. Egregious voices. Heinous voices.

We’re all familiar with the droning voice of the numbing speaker who rarely varies pitch, tone, or pace of a talk and who quickly loses us in monotony . . . and who does not move. In like fashion, you can be visually monotonous . . . when you do not move. Visual monotony – …

Whether the presentations class is in Philadelphia . . . or Mumbai . . . or Cali . . . or Chennai . . . I hear the same universal and eerie refrain from finance students. “Finance is different.” “We don’t do all of that soft-skill presentations stuff.” “For us, the numbers tell the story.” Numbers seem …

Beginning . . . Middle . . . End . . . that’s a winning structure every time. Every presentation – every story – has this framework. Let me rephrase.  Your presentation ought to have this framework, or you’re already in deep trouble.

Let’s move from the realm of what you do and say in front of your audience to the realm of your appearance. How you appear to your audience. Likewise, let’s immediately dismiss the notion that “it doesn’t matter what I look like – it’s the message that counts.” In a word . . . no. …
