The first rule of Pitch Perfect Club

We work with lots of different people, helping them perfect their presentations.   No matter their level of seniority, role, skills or educational background,

 

 

they are all insecure about their presenting capabilities, and feel they should – somehow – know how to be better at it.

 

One question comes up time and again. What is the rule for great presentations? This is an interesting one. You see, there are lots of rules – speak slowly, don’t put too many words on a PowerPoint – you’ve heard them all before.

 

But the most important learning point – the one which, if you follow it – will improve your performance immeasurably – is follow your own instinct.

 

Trust your instinct


The important point is – in this regard, there are no rules and no right answers. Next time you are doing a presentation what do you instinctively  think you should do? Spend hours preparing, or wing it? Use PowerPoint, or just talk? Plan, or go with the flow?

 

Learn from the past

 

Presuming you’ve made a couple of presentations before, you know what worked well and what could have gone better. And you know why.

  • Some people present well when they have written a script and then learned it off by heart

  • Others perform well with a bulleted list of points to cover

  • And then there are people who know their topic, feel confident, and present – and respond – in the moment

Follow your instinct and see how it helps you. I expect that you will feel more grounded and your talks will be more effective.

 

Your instinct will never let you down. So, make sure you listen to it.

 

If you would like to join us on 3rd July to discuss your view on Instinct, please follow this link to book your ticket
