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

Bob Boylan’s latest book, “Stop Being Predictable: 14 Tactics that Will Make Your Presentations Insanely Effective,” is an easy-to-use guide of conference-room tested ideas that helps presenters learn how to change for the better.
Boylan sees predictability as the scourge of presentations, and he lists several reasons why presenters are reluctant to do things differently: no spare time to think creatively; comfort with presenting in a way that’s familiar; fear of giving listeners other than what they expect; and lack of experience going outside of the box in general.
But Boylan points out that a presentation that avoids predictable patterns will be more memorable, more focused, more interesting, more engaging and more energized.
Boylan has more than 30 years’ experience teaching corporate executives how to give effective presentations. “‘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. 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 it will become second nature to do things differently,” Boylan said.
“Stop Being Predictable: 14 Tactics that Will Make Your Presentations Insanely Effective” makes it easy for presenters to change their approach 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.
