Anatomy of a lousy pitch

Fredrik Gunnarsson •

Whether you are speaking to an audience of one or one thousand, it’s critical that you engage your listeners.

As the presentation coach for some of today’s fastest growing companies, Tim Wackel knows exactly what it takes to deliver messages that get results.

The webinar is applicable for Presentations, Emails Demos and much more.


The 6 worst presentation habits

Mistake #1 – failure to understand you audience. If all you understand about your audience is their name and title you are in trouble. You need to focus your time on the audience and what they want instead of yourself and your ideas.

Mistake #2 – lack of a clearly defined objective. How do you know if you’ve had a good presentation if you don’t know what you want? Perhaps you are looking for a decision, support or a next meeting. However, you also need to address your audience needs.

Mistake #3 – too much data. This one is probably not new for most of you but is still a common mistake in presentations. When too much data is crammed into a presentation it makes it hard to understand and difficult to remember. After your presentation, you want the audience to be able to tell other people was about. That is why you want the audience to remember the big three ideas!

Mistake #4 – failure to excite. If the beginning of your presentation is boring, you are going to lose your audience that starts to think about other things. That’s why you need a hook that is less than 2 minutes. A hook is something interesting and exciting such a gee-whiz fact or a powerful story. Grab their attention!

Additionally, we share the number 5 and 6 mistake in the webinar on the link below. We also share an example of a great presentation and how to build it! Tim’s presentation is great so we can recommend it for basically all readers since everyone it making presentations.
