I was very happy to work with the Managing Director Jarden Business Services Group and her management team, to help them prepare and deliver their department’s presentations at the company’s recent all hands meeting.
Before the event I spoke together with the MD and her whole team and we agreed to take a different approach compared with previous events. Each presentation was more audience focused with clear messages and only presented key data and numbers. Presentations were interactive, and the slide design had a consistent theme running through them. Slides were very visual and avoided just using static graphics, overloaded information slides as well as boring standard stock photos.
The management team was very aware of the need to turn the all hands meeting into an event which was targeted at the needs (and attention spans) of the audience (average age low 30’s). The feedback from the 100 plus audience was very favorable.
I also participated in the event and gave the company a presentation on ‘Being Change Ready’. This presentation topic was chosen as this theme is likely to be a feature in the company’s strategy in 2018. The management team was very aware of the need to turn the all hands meeting into an event which was targeted at the demographics of the audience (average age low 30’s).
