HW ‘s Presentation Tips: Get to the Fucking Point

22 Aug 2009 /

Here’s a simple presentation tip that would help a lot of people: Get to the fucking point.

At a meeting this morning, the company sick time policy was explained to 100 people over the course of 30 minutes time via two PowerPoint presentations by two different people.

I’ll summarize it here:

If you’re well enough to work, you should come to work. If not, stay home. BUT — if you stay home too much, it may negatively affect your annual performance review.

That’s the policy. Let’s open it up for questions.

Don’t take 15 minutes to say something you can say in 15 seconds. Don’t feel like you have to include a historical introduction to the topic, charts, graphs, trends, industry comparisons.

Other people are not in love with the sound of your voice the way you are . . .
