Are you
stuck with a
deadly boring
presentation?
Do you feel like
the odds are
against you?
Can you remember four words?
ZOOM
IN
Replace generalizations with
compelling details…
Cite interesting and enlightening
research…
Tell stories how this impacts
real people.
Yes, you will have to get out from under your desk and
actually use your brain.
ZOOM
OUT
Look at your subject from a
fresh perspective…
Try taking a global view of your
topic…
Put yourself in different shoes:
those of another person,
company, country, religion,
political party or opinion.
To be
interesting,
vary
your perspective.

A few quick fixes…
Explore other countries and cultures online
(and do it in real life after you fix your presentation.)
Show others you have the range to cover
both the details and the big picture.
Create a
sense of
suspense
about what
you will say
or do next.
This is not the way to save your presentation.
Bruce Kasanoff helps people get good ideas,
