5 Ways to Give a Presentation That Nobody Will Ever Forget

  • Whether you're pitching a product or presenting at a staff meeting, here are five ways to create memorable moments in any presentation.
  • 1. Use Your Audience
  • There's no better way to wake up your audience and keep them engaged than to literally use them in your presentation.
  • 2. Don’t Fear the Funny
  • What most people don't realize is that adding humor does not mean that you need to start honing your stand-up skills, which sounds terrifying even to us.
  • 3. Incorporate Music. Or Memes. Or a Dance Ensemble.
  • Don’t always rely on the "tried-and-true," as that can be a pretty good indicator that everyone is already doing it.
  • 4. Use Projections Wisely (or Not at All)
  • Challenge yourself to be communicative without technology at least once in your presentation.
  • 5. Take the Time to Brainstorm
  • You might just have to take that extra hour or three to plan your presentation's creative move.
