“Bueller? Bueller?” The sound of the teacher’s voice in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off as he takes attendance is all too familiar in the world of seminars. The droning voice lecturing at the front of the room while the eyes of those in the crowd are slowly glazing over at a seminar is reminiscent of that scene, and that is not how you want your event to be perceived. Instead, you want your event to be full of questions leading to conversations and more importantly prospects converting to clients. Use these tips to begin that conversion process:
- Have a thorough understanding of the material you’ll be presenting. You’re the expert in the room; know the research to support the information you present.
- Use PowerPoint judiciously. Every idea that you discuss does not need to appear on a slide. Use the program as a visual aid, not to restate each point.
- Deliver your presentation with enthusiasm. Entice your audience with your passion for your products and solutions. Engage with them during the presentation by asking them questions about their concerns and needs.
- Be confident. Have fun!
