Let’s be honest, most presentations are boring! Whether it’s an internal report on sales performance or a pitch from a new supplier, presentations often demand the absorption of huge amounts of data that require you to feign interest for an unreasonable amount of time. Similarly as a presenter, you can’t help but cringe when you see your audience losing interest as you inevitably become increasingly mono syllabic throughout your over rehearsed speech. Presentations are unfortunately an inescapable part of the working world but there is a way to revolutionise the once mundane presentation.
Almost all of us use touch screen devices including phones, laptops and tablets so why not introduce that format into the boardroom? Once you have invested in a touchscreen you’ll need to source cool software that will allow you to create presentations that can be touched and interacted with. Fortunately you need look no further than here! Perception is our latest multi-touch software enabling you to revolutionise your presentations.
But how can Perception be used for such a transformation?
Consider a new format: Break away from tradition and impress your audience by presenting on a touch table top. Alternatively flick content between portrait screens directly to the table top so that your audience can have a closer look at content without having to move!
Non-linear presentations: Unless your presentation needs to be in a linear format with a beginning, middle and end, structure your products, services and company overview into categories that can be accessed on demand. Audiences love having the autonomy to access information so be prepared to jump around with topics and discussions.
Use existing marketing collateral: You’ve probably already got product brochures, performance graphs and PowerPoint Presentations so include them in your Perception presentation. No need to re-do anything, simply add them like you would any other piece of media. Simple!
Mix it up: Keep your audience captivated by mixing things up a little. Add images, presentations, word documents, 3D models and even video files. Unlike conventional PowerPoint presentations these can be played back without a wifi connection. In addition to this, Perception will support enlarged videos up to 9k resolution to ensure that striking quality can be achieved every time.
3D content is a great way of encouraging interaction.
Sensory overload: As well as creating visual impact engage the senses by including audio on your video content. Video content will definitely carry more impact if it has the accompanying sound track.
Interactive Content: Take full advantage of this interactive medium by including content that encourages engagement from the audience. With Perception you can categorise your content into different levels or sub-categories to allow end users to fully explore the different levels of information. Additionally, videos and 3D models which can be pivoted and explored are a great way of increasing engagement.
Use a mixture of documents, images, videos and even 3D content.
Don’t reinvent the wheel: If you have specific content that you wish to include in your presentation that already exists on a webpage there is no need to recreate this content. Instead, include the URL or the page you want and it will be displayed in its full glory within your presentation.
Get a manicure: Since you’re creating a fantastic multi-touch project you’ll be touching, swiping, pinching and zooming so expect your hands to be the star of the show. Make sure you have presentable hands and nails or even better, why not treat yourself to that manicure?
Finally, let’s imagine that you’ve just received a presentation from a new supplier, made using Perception, where you were able to flick and share content with your peers, drag content across the screen and play full HD product videos. When it comes to making your final decision you inevitably choose the supplier that you had maximum engagement with and the one that remained the most memorable. With Perception you can provoke a response, allow interaction and differentiate your company from your competitors.
