So, if surgeons can use checklists to save lives, don’t you think we can use a few checklists to make our business presentations better?
So, I looked around the web and found a few checklists you can use for your next business presentation.
Checklist 1: To avoid content, design and delivery issues while creating a presentation
This is a useful checklist from TechRepublic.
PowerPoint has a few safety nets that can help with design and delivery issues, but there’s still ample opportunity to overlook critical details and wind up with mistakes, inconsistencies, and unwelcome surprises at presentation time. This checklist (which you can also download as a PDF) will help you cover all the bases without having to become a PowerPoint expert.
Checklist 2: To avoid technical issues during your business presentation
If you are a small business owner, you will relate to the things discussed in this article.
No one will remember how well you designed your PowerPoint slides or how good your ideas were if technical issues derail your business presentation. To ensure your PowerPoint presentation goes off without a hitch you have to think about the logistics that will facilitate the presentation, and not just about creating your slides.
Checklist 3: To evaluate the logic of your presentation story, clarity of your PowerPoint slides and the strength of your presentation delivery
