Practising a presentation
Present different picture cards and become an experienced presenter.
- Ask the client to stand up and walk away from the chair.
- Give the client a randomly chosen Dialoogle Magnum card and ask them to spend one minute talking about whatever crosses their mind when looking at the image. Repeat this step a few times.
- If the client’s presentation halts, you may help them by asking questions about some of the basic elements in a presentation:
“What would you like to talk about today?”
“Can you give an example of…?”
“Could you imagine that…?”
“Can you sum up why…?
- Give them some time to plan a presentation based on three pictures of their choice.
- When the client has given their presentation, give them constructive feedback, focusing on the elements that worked well:
“Your eyes lit up when you talked about…”
“Things really came alive when you…”
“The introduction worked well because…”
- Ask the client to take a seat once again. Now, talk about different techniques, body language etc.
- Repeat the presentation and compliment them if they succeeds in implementing the previously discussed elements.
It may be a good idea to let different participants present the different elements of the presentation.
Innovation is discovering, developing and applying new ideas in known workflows and processes. Give innovation a boost with images.
90% of the brain’s sensory input comes from visual sources. Images start thought tracks in the brain. If they cross each other in new combinations, new ideas emerge.
Creativity unfolds when we use imagery and try to combine different and seemingly independent motifs with each other.
