Business presentations are a vital part of the business system. They occur internally, to share knowledge and keep teams informed on the status of projects. They occur at the B2B level where new business in the type of wholesale supplies, products, and services are bought and sold, arguably lifeblood of local and global economies.
And naturally, they occur at the B two consumer levels – every TV commercial, online advertisement, even lots of “editorial” articles you read, have business development as their core agenda.
No matter what your profession, business, or line of work is – the better at giving business presentations you are, the more successful you will be, hands down. And I don’t care in case you are a building maintenance worker, a computer programmer, or a plumber, i.e. you are in an occupation that seemingly has no place for business presentations – because they do have their place, whether it is obvious or not. Powerpoint presentation tutorials will help you in your business.
Every time you need to describe or even “justify” a choice, strategy, or approach to your boss, team members, or clients, you are engaged in a business presentation. The better you are at doing this, the more success you will have, even in case you are a coder sitting behind a monitor all day. In that case, and you get this skill right, it will be the difference between being “just” another coder, and that of a team leader, manager, director, or business owner, along with commensurate increases in wage and bonuses.
What I am saying here is nothing new or original, and I am not proposing a “theory”. Mastering business presentations (and some would call it basically selling) is an essential success principal. It plays a role in personal relationships as well as business. It ties directly in with ideas like charisma and persuasiveness. In case you have any doubts about this, read some of the classics in personal development and success, such as “Think and Grow Rich” by Napolean Hill, or “The Magic of Thinking Big” by David Joseph Schwartz, and “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie (as corny as the titles sound to lots of, there is powerful knowledge in these books.)
