Presenting with Impact

You hear your name and walked to the front of the room. At the same time, you quickly begin to ask yourself these questions.

  • Will they pay attention to what I have to say?

  • What information are they really looking for?

  • Will they appreciate me professionally?

  • Will I achieve my goal?

Or, you may invite a presenter to a meeting to update the marketing group on an ongoing research project. The response: “No problem. I know enough about that project to talk about it all day”—and he does.

You probably have your own thoughts and feelings about presentations. They may include some of the items and experiences above, and may change depending on the audience or the topic. But one important fact remains:

Communication is #1 Factor in Achieving Success in Business

How do we know that? One survey conducted by well-known US search firm LaValle asked top executives to rank attributes that they looked for in identifying “successful” managers and employees. Here are the results:

Top Execs’ Top Ten:

  1. Communication Skills - 71%
  2. Intelligence - 64%
  3. Integrity - 54%
  4. Experience - 50%
  5. Enthusiasm - 46%
  6. Self-esteem & Confidence - 37%
  7. Risk-taking Attitude - 35%
  8. Formal Education - 29%
  9. Ambition - 25%

The American Management Association surveyed 2,800 executives and asked, “What is the number one need for success in business today?” The overwhelming response:

To persuade others of your value and the value of your ideas.
