look, you need a strong story, but you’ve already got that. So why not challenge yourself with the latest technology? Porsche never stop trying to improve their classic 911. They understand that technology, used with sensitivity, adds to even the most successful track record.
You can add an extra small margin of excellence to your already well crafted schtick in any number of ways. Here’s three to start you thinking.
- Use a smartphone or tablet to present ‘wirelessly’ at your next conference, presentation or pitch.
- Incorporate the freedom that the technology gives you to ‘jam’ around your theme. Use it effortlessly show your slides, move to images, go live to your twitter feed and audience comments, and then back to your visuals without missing a beat.
- Use something that looks and feels different to PowerPoint or Keynote. Prezi, for example, or mime, but try something.
Then watch the intrigue on your audiences faces as they listen and wonder how the bloody hell you’re doing that. The only caveat is that you should do it quietly, with no smug, self-satisfaction and ‘aren’t I clever’ comments to the crowd, or they’ll just want you to fail. But do it silently, charmingly and with skill, it will add deep shine to you and your message.
In the next post we’ll explore how you can start.
