Presentation on Presentations
Posted by APM on 27th Jan 2015
On a cold January evening a warm welcome was on offer at The Royal Scots Club in Edinburgh for Peter Taylor’s Presentation on Presentations.
As well as writing books including ‘The Lazy Project Manager’ and ‘The Real Project Manager’, over the last four years Peter has been busy delivering over 200 presentations around the world. The Scottish branch were delighted Peter had time in his busy schedule to visit Edinburgh. An audience of 44 members from a range of organisations attended this entertaining and insightful talk.
Peter's presentation started off with a humorous talk on the reinvented ‘Diamond Shreddie’, which demonstrated the power and influence presentation possesses. He highlighted some key areas to consider when presenting; purpose, tricks & techniques, content, time, style, the 3 ‘P’s (prepare, present, profit), risks, rules, hates and last but certainly not least, being prepared for the unexpected!
Peter certainly demonstrated how to engage the audience when presenting and stuck to his own rule of less is more with a short, sharp and to the point presentation.
