Why Not? -------- (Note: Special thanks to Julian Jordan for the official Spanish translation, which is now available under captions.) Script for Powerful Presentations: Simply Stated By Marc Strong Around the world every day, thousands if not millions of people give presentations. Some are great, and have a powerful impact on their audiences. Others...well, let's just say they're works in progress. This is Powerful Presentations: Simply Stated Meet Jim, an aspiring professional trying to make it in the world. Jim used to give presentations like just about everyone else he knew. PowerPoint was his tool of choice. He'd use it like an outline, with a header followed by bullet after bullet, and sometimes even sub-bullets! When he wanted to be fancy, he'd add what usually turned out to be an ineffective chart or sometimes a table. And when Jim wanted to really spice things up, he'd add...yep...clip art. Unfortunately, Jim's approach would often confuse and bore people. This was a problem because he had important things to say. And because it was dimming his prospects for success. Fortunately, Jim learned a better way and didn't stay in the dark for long. Perhaps most importantly, he now focuses on the story he wants to tell. In doing so, he tries to follow a simple structure, with a clear beginning, middle, and end that links together his various points and builds to his conclusion. When formulating his story, Jim uses a simple pad of paper or sicky notes. Staying low tech at this stage helps him think more creatively and stay outside the box. He then considers what tools will help him best tell his story. Jim sometimes opts to use a whiteboard, flip charts, handouts, or even no props at all. When it makes sense for him to use PowerPoint, he tries to remember the adage that sometimes "less is more." He doesn't dumb down his presentations, but he does try to limit each slide to one key idea. Or, depending on the content, he sometimes builds an idea incrementally so it's easy to follow. He looks for visual ways to tell his story, with minimal text, photos, and clear charts and graphs. Quote: "All the so-called "Secrets of success" will not work unless you do. -Unknown" Sometimes he'll use quotes, but he tries to remember that people can't read his slides and truly listen at the same time. Jim still uses plenty of text to help him remember what he wants to say, but he hides it in his notes that only he sees (show view notes screen). Jim's new approach takes more time, energy, and rehearsal, but it's been well worth the effort. His audiences are now much more engaged and better understand and remember his presentations. And, as if that weren't enough...(congrats on the promotion)...his pocketbook doesn't mind either. (Pause) This has been Powerful Presentations: Simply Stated.

what about if we KNOW how to give a proper presentation, but crippling anxiety prevents us from doing that
Wienot Films (1 year ago)
We understand the feeling. Our best advice is to practice, practice, practice. Being prepared usually helps reduce nerves. Good luck!

a scientific study about the brain was that you should write an essay before you do your presentation or anything important an essay about your inner deep thoughts or what you are going to do if you do good or bad. They did this study on a few highschool students before their SATS and on average people that wrote their inner deep thoughts got better grades then those who didn't want to write anything before their exams.

Deb Johnson (3 years ago)
I hate to say it, but I run away from these types of Ads. Most last way too long before they get to the point and tell you the magic message or the price. If I do watch the whole thing, I'm afraid I pay too much attention to the drawing and miss the point of the AD. Sorry, maybe its because I am soo visual in my learning style.
Wienot Films (3 years ago)
+Deb Johnson P.S. One other thing, this particular video isn't actually an ad. We created it to help do our little part to eliminate the plague known as "death by PowerPoint." :)
Wienot Films (3 years ago)
+Deb Johnson Thanks for watching and for taking the time to comment. Unfortunately we can't please everyone. That said, we do our best to get to the main "so what/why should I care" right away. We like to start with a high level view in the beginning and then dive into the details as the video progresses. Thanks again and best wishes!

Awesome,it is very simple and helpful; a BIG THANK YOU, I realy love it. I just have a question, how can I make a successfull presentation like this one, if there is only scientiste audience ???? and how can I chose my story?? Waiting your advices thank you !!

Thank you very much, really  you have inspired me about a very cool idea, that I will realise it soon. My best wishes for your continuation.  +Wienot Films
Wienot Films (3 years ago)
+Besma .B Think of a story that illustrates your point. A good story has a hero and a challenge that must be overcome. It also has a resolution at the end. Even if the story isn't about a person, think about something that could be the focus of your explanation. Good luck!

How to make successfull PP: 1. Make boring tittle that noone cares about 2. Make sure to put in these animations to spend more time making it 3. Put a lot of pictures so they cant see text and you can say whatever you want 4. Make fake broken PP so you will have more time making it 5. Make it to make teacher happy. Others don't care anyway.

MrUmbreon1994 (3 years ago)
This is awesome :) a question though, I am doing a business and marketing course, and I have to give a presentation about an opportunity I chose, I chose franchising out for my dream cafe I want to run, what should I do, a story through powerpoint a pivot animation (stick figure animation program) or a play of sorts? Which one do you think would be best for this? 
Wienot Films (3 years ago)
The most important thing to begin with is your story. If you have a great story to tell, there are many ways to tell it. The method you choose will depend on your audience and what you want them to feel. Feel free to contact us via our website if you want to know more.

Théo B (3 years ago)
What is the name of the song please ? And where can I find it ? Very nice.
What a great idea! Presentation is not only about telling people what we think, but also how to attract audience attention in the same time. I agree with you that Presentation should have story which made it's unique and "less is more" when you put your design into slides. Just in case if you need clean, professional looks design on digital presentation media, such as powerpoint, prezi, or flash. You can check my video on Youtube. :)

Julie Wendell (4 years ago)
I really like this video and would love to show it at a Girl Scout event I have next weekend. We're teaching girls marketing and sales skills to enhance their cookie sale. We don't have internet at our venue. Could I get a copy of the video emailed to me? Or can I access it offline? Thanks!
Wienot Films (4 years ago)
Julie, the video would be too large to email. You can either use a tool that will "rip" YouTube videos, or you can go to our Vimeo channel and download the video there, which will probably give you a better quality video than if you rip it. You might need to sign in to download it, but it's free to sign up. https://vimeo.com/23138239 Good luck with the Girl Scout event!

This is the best video I have seen from a week or so!  I used to get almost 3-4 dreams in a day and some where really fearsome and some inspirational! I did not know what to do! but , i did one good one which is tracked all my dreams using "dreamed" mobile app by lokesh and then after a month , I showed to a expert and he helped me to transform my life. I have more focus now and more passion in life and less fear!

Paul Wunder (4 years ago)
But what do you do when you have been given a topic that is boring as fuck, and you HAVE TO present something about it... I cannot see an easy answer to that at all, close eyes and push through?
Wienot Films (4 years ago)
+Paul Wunder Perhaps you can find some interesting stories about the region or about the wine that comes from that region. If you can give them a reason to care, it might make the boring stuff less boring. Good luck Paul!
Paul Wunder (4 years ago)
+Wienot Films I think a metaphor would be really great, but when you have to present things like grape varieties, production methods, wine comunities in a specific region, then how the heck would you use any metaphor? I am really going down on this...
Paul Wunder (4 years ago)
+Wienot Films Well, the topic is Franken (in germany) as a wine region, and its suppoused to be 20 to 30 minutes... Any suggestions???
Wienot Films (4 years ago)
Try teaching the topic as a metaphor. Metaphors and stories are almost always more fun than the topic itself. Good luck!

Hi there, I did check out your webpage. Watched a few of your videos. But, I'd like to ask, where you find music for your videos?

Hi Monique, is there a video in particular you're talking about? We get music from different sources. Our favorite source is a composer who customizes it to our videos, such as the ones we did for Mobi. .

Technically I think that it should be "Practice Perfect makes Perfect"

Probably no such thing as perfect for us humans. But hopefully practice makes great. Thanks for commenting.

Because we're humans, technically "perfect" isn't possible. ;-) Thanks for watching...

We used a whiteboard, a marker, a hand, a camera, and editing software. :) I know there are automated ways to make these, but I'm not familiar with the software. We prefer to stay hand-crafted.
