How to plan a corporate presentation or workshop

Presentations and workshops are an important part of corporate life, whether you are assisting clients to become familiar with a new product or introducing new concepts to train up your team. Here are some tips for a successful presentation or workshop, from a leading conference venue near Johannesburg.

  • Define your parameters: These events can easily become side-tracked by the way they impact on other areas of business, so it’s important to define the scope of your project and stick within it.
  • Know your audience: This will determine how in-depth it should be, the level of technicality you should use, the focus of the event and the language you should use. For example, clients and vendors will require a different focus to a department training group or C-level executives.
  • Use media: Visual representations, demonstrations and so forth are essential for rounding out your project, keeping people interested and engaged, and giving a comprehensive representation of what you are trying to achieve.
  • Rehearse: As with all things, practice makes perfect, so you need to do a few dry runs alone and with co-presenters. Jot down questions you think your audience is likely to ask, as a co-worker knowledgeable on your topic to review it and give pointers, and make sure your slides and other media are working smoothly.
  • Get the right space: For a presentation or workshop to be successful, it needs to take place in a suitable space. It should be comfortable in any season, have enough space for attendees and the presentation itself, have a suitable AV package and be distraction-free so everyone can focus.
