6 Seven Questions to Knowing Your Audience Why are they here? What do they think they’re going to get out of this presentation? Why did they come to hear you? Are they willing participants or mandatory attendees? This is also a bit of a situation analysis. 2 What keeps them up at night? Everyone has a fear, a pain point, a thorn in the side. Let your audience know you empathize— and offer a solution. 3 How can you solve their problem? What’s in it for the audience? How are you going to make their lives better? 4 What do you want them to do? Answer the question “so what?”—and make sure there’s clear action for your audience to take. 5 How can you best reach them? People vary in how they receive information. This can include the set up of the room to the availability of materials after the presentation. Give the audience what they want, how they want it. 6 How might they resist? What will keep them from adopting your message and carrying out your call to action? 7 What are they like? Demographics and psychographics are a great start, but connecting with your audience means understanding them on a personal level. Take a walk in their shoes and describe what their life looks like each day. 1 © 2008 Insert a representative picture or illustration of an audience member in this rectangle. It helps to put a face on the audience. 6

18 Font style San Serif for reading screens At least 24 - 30 point Only 2 styles per slide CAPS ARE HARD TO READ. Use Upper and lower case. 18

19 Serif San Serif 19

20 TEXT IN ALL CAPS HURTS. Underlining cuts off ‘p’s, ‘q’s and ‘g’s and such. Bet this is kinda hard to read! Text Upper and lowercase Italics emphasize Bet this is not! Ouch aaaah 20

21 Chilean Exports Fresh fruit leads Chile's export mix - Chile emerges as major supplier of fresh fruit to world market due to ample natural resources, consumer demand for fresh fruit during winter season in U.S. and Europe, and incentives in agricultural policies of Chilean government, encouraging trend toward diversification of exports and development of nontraditional crops - U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Economic Research Service Report Chile is among the developing economies taking advantage of these trends, pursuing a free market economy. This has allowed for diversification through the expansion of fruit production for export, especially to the U.S. and Western Europe. Chile has successfully diversified its agricultural sector to the extent that it is now a major fruit exporting nation. Many countries view Chile's diversification of agriculture as a model to be followed. Meanwhile, the U.S. remains the largest single market for Chile's fruit exports. However, increasing demand from the EC and Central and East European countries combined may eventually surpass exports to the U.S., spurring further growth in Chile's exports. If you’ve read this far, your eyes probably hurt and you’ve been reading this tedious long-winded text instead of listening to me. I’m insulted- can’t you see I’m doing a presentation up here? Look at me! Congratulations, however, on having such good eyesight. 21

22 Graphics Adds to comprehension, so make them relevant Ask yourself: “Why am I adding this picture?” Avoid too many models (You want to have a ‘memorable presentation, right?) 22

23 Ask yourself, “Why?” 23

26 Charts and Graphs Use thick lines to show trends. Use bright colors for lines (yellow is invisible) Five lines or bars max per graph Use something to guide the eye to the main point of the chart (arrow, title, color, box, etc) Shorten numbers (2007 = ’07, $10,436.77 = $10.4 on an axis for ‘thousands’) 26
