Great Neck, N.Y. (PRWEB) December 5, 2007
If you've ever sat through a boring business presentation or walked away from a sales pitch without being impressed with the effort, then you can appreciate the amount of money businesses lose each year due to ineffective presentations.
Some estimate the numbers in the billions of dollars, and they're not wrong. Bad presentations result in lost sales and diminished productivity. If the listener doesn't "get it," they don't "buy it," and they don't "do it," all of which is bad for business.
Bob Lipp of Better Business Presentations understands that communication isn't what you say, but what your audience of one or one-hundred hears. The company offers a free PowerPoint "Secrets To Connecting With Your Audience" in the Flash/PowerPoint section of its home page http://www.betterbusinesspresentations.com, under "Newest Services."
Lipp, who began his career teaching public speaking at The Ohio State University, and was selected to the presentation coaching team that worked with companies including Procter & Gamble, has long been an advocate for communication that makes a point and attracts an audience.
"If your presentation involves sales, while you may not always close the deal, you'll be much further ahead if you invite the audience into your pitch," suggests Lipp, in the company's free PowerPoint. "Begin the presentation by stating 'I can appreciate that you may have an interest in buying our product. However you still have some questions that need answering. What would be your top three?' Write down each question as asked, and respond directly to the inquiry, restating the question to larger audiences."
"Secrets To Connecting With Your Audience" presents a logical, rule-by-rule approach that helps you make sense out of the "whys" and "hows" of presenting for maximum impact.
The free PowerPoint also showcases Better Business Presentation's creative skills as the presentation uses both PowerPoint and Flash and some basic video to keep the viewer entertained while being informed.
