How far is too far??
Updated: Mar 14
When you’re delivering a presentation for a board, or corporate company, just how much creativity is ‘acceptable’, and even permissible?
I love that saying by Shakespeare, "All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players."
I’m totally with ole Shakespeare there!
I’m a creative at heart, so if it were up to me, I’d colour every slide into an entertaining narrative that ticked all the logic boxes, evoked emotion, informed and moved the audience to take inspired action – I might even throw in a little surprise factor!
But alas, not everyone is used to that kind of presenting, right?
So the question remains – just how much creativity are we allowed and is effective?
IT'S UP TO YOU!
Ultimately, it’s up to you, but here are my top 5 stats to help you make that decision:
If we want to be more memorable, create a greater impact and inspire action in others, my advice is:
Add the colour, tell the stories, shape unique metaphors and link your content to it all.
Stun Your Audience
Be original, show off your style, and tell your story.
I guarantee you, not only won’t you bore your audience through another dull PPT, you’ll have them hanging on your every word, and wanting more!
And when that happens – your messages have more clarity, your confidence increases and ultimately – you become more credible.
