Tell the story not read the slides

I am sure you have sat through lots of presentations and the presenter reads word for word from the PowerPoint. Does this sound familiar? You are thinking in your head, not another stupid presentation.

Tell the story. Think of the days as a kid sitting with your Grandpa for hours listening to war stories that still today you remember. Do you remember any of the presentations you have heard lately? Probably not. It’s because they read word for word rather than tell a story. People want something that they can latch on to and keep with them forever. Something they can go home and tell their wife and their kids. Make it interesting and tell a story or forget about even showing up.
