Are you committed to your presentations?
Getting face-to-face with your clients is the biggest opportunity you get to win. So how come it's such a do-it-yourself exercise?
Getting beyond the bullet points takes some tough decisions, not just on who prepares your presentations, but on what actually gets presented. If you're ready to do it properly you need to let go of quite a few pre-conceived ideas; you need to be ready to stop doing things the way your competitors do.
If you're ready to bite that bullet, we've got some great stuff for you here.
[ideas] Let's Explore!
Here's an unusual one. One of my clients loves to go interactive in his presentations. So he asked for a little guy who could roam around exploring the options according to what the audience wanted to hear about. Part of the result is in the video above. The tubby little chap (in the presentation, not me, you understand) roams around a 3D world according to audience responses, opening up mini-presentations whenever he arrives at a destination.
Doze off while that's going on, I dare you!

Let's all panic about social media. Everyone else is, why not us? Cast your mind back to the early nineties; were you one of the people saying "We've got to get a Website, I wonder what we should put on it?"
See the parallel? Your customers use social media when they've got a spare minute. Make sure you're doing everything you should that's central to their job before you start tweeting about the queue at Burger King.
