Executive Presentations

Came across these points from Lisa Anderson – she runs LMA Consulting Group (http://www.lma-consultinggroup.com/).  These are very applicable for high level presentations, and good points to keep the message simple:

1.    Focus on bottom line results – what else is there to say?  This is vital.

2.    Keep the presentation at the high level – it is tempting to get down into the details and methodology.  Don’t.  Once the concept is approved, focus on detailed plans.

3.    Use process visuals (graphs) – as the saying goes, “pictures are worth a thousand words”. 

4.    Focus on the pragmatic – I’m thrilled to say that pragmatic is coming back into style (as it is right up my alley).  Is it reasonable?  Attainable?  Can it be achieved within a reasonable amount of time?

5.    Present a complete picture in terms of resources, support needed, priorities etc. – keep it to the key points but it is critical to include all relevant data so that the Executives have the big picture.
