Public Speaking Presentations - Multimedia

Great Public Speaking

In the good old days (translates to last year), multimedia meant using several different media in the same presentation. Now the term multimedia carries a whole new meaning. In present day terms, multimedia means you are using a computer-controlled presentation that may include full color, sound, video, graphics, animation, and text. I attended a trade show not too long ago where a major vendor of multimedia software was doing a demonstration.

Let’s say that you want to play a video but you don’t want it to play as soon as you display the slide. You want to explain the point on the slide first, then play the video to validate your point. Furthermore, let’s say that you are using a remote and don’t want to have to walk over to your laptop and click on the video itself.

Lucas, Scorsese: On the need for visual literacy

Presentation Zen

A professional or student in the 21st century needs to have a good degree of multimedia literacy. The term multimedia literacy and visual literacy encompass many things and borrow from many disciplines. However, for at least a generation or more when people speak of the need for multimedia literacy (they may call it different things) they very often focus on the high-tech tools of the day.

Steve Jobs: "People who know what they’re talking about don’t need PowerPoint"

Multimedia is great for presentations before large groups such as keynote addresses or conference presentations, but in meetings where you want to actively discuss issues or go over details in depth, slides—especially the snooze-inducing bulletpoint variety, which are never a good idea—are almost always counter productive.

A remote control can set your presentations free!

Presentation Zen

You do not have to use multimedia in a live talk to be successful, but if you do choose to present with the amplifiying power of multimedia, then a small, remote control device is a necessity. Today we still see too many business people, academics, and students, stuck behind lecterns with their eyes fixed on their laptops as they try to make their case, report their findings, or pitch their ideas.

Story structure, simplicity, & hacking away at the unessential

Presentation Zen

Multimedia—if you use it—comes last Multimedia is wonderful. but before they ever began to organize slides, and other multimedia, they first organized their ideas and their approach around a very basic structure. For a lot of us, the reality is not that we have too few ideas, it''s that we have too many. This may not sound like a problem, but it becomes problematic when we get bogged down in analysis paralysis and feel unable to choose, and harder still to simplify.

Speaking about Presenting

Our presentations unfold across multiple channels, whether it’s a live keynote or breakout, video or multimedia content delivered on demand, or an immersive, user-navigated experience. In fact, the multimedia learning science we follow actually proves that traditional onscreen bullet points are not only a tedious PowerPoint habit – they are also detrimental to your audience’s capacity to learn.

To live is to have a story to tell

Presentation Zen

We can apply the spirit of this to the world of multimedia presentations as well. “But how could you live and have no story to tell?” This quote from Fyodor Dostoevsky's White Nights (1848) was sent in by a reader today. Life by its very nature is a struggle, a journey on a road with ups and downs and more conflict than we like to admit. But this is life, this is drama.

What to do when you’re losing your audience

Speaking about Presenting

It looks desperate and research by Richard Mayer (the guru of multimedia learning) shows that it harms the ability of the audience to take in your core message. Your audience’s attention will fade over time unless you take specific steps to keep them engaged.

What is your intention?

Presentation Zen

These cluttered and distracting multimedia creations, filled with the superfluous and the nonessential, incorporating seemingly every special effect, color, and font the software had to offer, end up assaulting the brains of anyone who dares to look in the general direction of the screen. In the world of presentation visuals, I often have new students in university or clients in the business world who are very eager to come to me to show off their "visual masterpieces."
