Most company CEOs and team leaders when presenting information, present a data dump. When you suggest that they use stories to illustrate their points, their thinking, “Hey, this information is serious business.” I say, “Yea, so serious, that everybody is bored to snore”; putting it politely. When you present a data dump, there’s no connection and the audience switches off.
I think the reason most company presenters stick to PowerPoint presentations is because everybody else does. It’s hard for you to be the first person to break the mould and dare step out of your comfort zone.
I mentioned the word data dump before, well most of them are in the form of numbers and statistics. If you can make those statistics meaningful and interesting, or even more importantly, relatable, half the battle is won. Statistics are not the message, they a resource to help you make your point.
