‘Stop Being Predictable’ is about simple ways to change your presentation by stepping away from the familiar, predictable patterns.

Bob Boylan, author of “Stop Being Predictable: 14 Tactics that Will Make Your Presentations Insanely Effective,” says that presenters need to make a paradigm shift if they want to be more effective.
In Joel Barker’s book “Paradigms,” he defines a paradigm as one’s perception of reality. Presenters are stuck giving presentations the way they do because that is the only way they believe a presentation will be accepted. Trying something different would be like a quarterback using a catcher’s mitt — it wouldn’t match their perception of reality.
Boylan’s point is presenters need to have a paradigm shift to see his ideas as beneficial or they will never use them or be able to benefit from them.
Boylan says the key problem for all presenters to overcome is to get the audience to see the ideas they’re presenting as the presenter does. Boylan’s book has 14 paradigm shifts to make presentations insanely effective.
These are conference-room tested ideas, so other presenters have already shifted their perception of what a presentation can be like and have had great success doing so.
Boylan has more than 30 years’ experience teaching corporate executives how to give effective presentations. His latest book is an easy-to-use guide that shows presenters that there is a better way. “‘Stop Being Predictable’ is about simple ways to change your presentation by stepping away from the familiar, predictable patterns,” Boylan said.
“Stop Being Predictable” is designed to make it easy for presenters to change. The 14 tactics are not complicated or difficult to employ. What’s difficult for presenters is stepping out of their comfort zone, their current reality. Boylan shows presenters how even a small change in approach can yield positive results.
“Stop Being Predictable” is set up so that in each of the 14 tactics people can recognize themselves in a typical problem situation that commonly occurs during presentations. Then the tactic — Boylan’s solution to the problem — is stated. This is followed by a real-life success story about a presenter who used the tactic. The final section in each tactic details what readers can do right now to put the idea into practice.
“You will instantly discover the difference based on how you feel and based on the results you see. Then you will try more of the ideas in your next presentation. Soon your perception of what a presentation can be will change completely,” Boylan said.
“Stop Being Predictable: 14 Tactics that Will Make Your Presentations Insanely Effective” makes it easy for presenters to make that paradigm shift and realize improved success. Author Bob Boylan knows these techniques work and gives examples of success stories to encourage the reader to stop being predictable.
