Types of presentations and their tools

So, we continue to analyze the development of presentations. You can find previous articles on preparation (here).

Imagine that our task with you is to develop a presentation for a speech, "stop" tell me, do presentations have types ? What is the difference between different types of presentations? Let's figure it out.

Imagine that you come to a meeting, there is a person standing in front of the screen. It displays a slide on the screen, on the slide you see the text. You instantly scan the slide with your eyes and read the information from there. Everything is clear to you! And then the speaker begins to read the text from the slide aloud. But you've just read it!

Such a situation is nothing more than a common mistake - a person has prepared a presentation for reading, and uses it, as a result, for a speech.

Imagine another situation - you are at the presentation of a new iPhone. Johnny Ive comes on stage and says: "Last year we sold one hundred five hundred million iPhones." And a huge figure appears on the screen: "+100500 million". Ovation, curtain.

Do you feel the difference? The content and structure of the presentation depends on where and for what purposes you plan to use it.

In the table below you will find the main differences:

Add row aboveAdd row belowDelete rowAdd column to leftAdd column to rightDelete column Presentation for reading Presentation for speakingThe presentation of the whole presentation accompanies the speech of the speaker the slide contains all the information that the author wanted to convey. There is nothing left for oral pronouncing.There are only figures, facts and some powerful illustrations on the slide. At the same time, there is no main text on the slide — it must be pronounced by the speaker.There may be a lot of text on the slide, it is typed in small font.There is little text on the slide. It can be displayed in large font. The text is expressive and impressive.You can work with slides as with any other document: copy abstracts and illustrations.The presentation makes sense only during the performance. When copying individual slides, it may not be clear what it is about.You can study the presentation in any order and at any time. As a rule, there is content and navigation at the beginning.  The presentation structure is linear. You can skip some slides, but the speaker will most likely act in order.

Summarizing, we can say that the presentation for reading should be used for this purpose: print it out, put it on the table for managers or send it by mail. It contains all the necessary information and does not require additional explanations. Therefore, it makes no sense to display it on the screen and even more so to read it out loud.

A presentation for a speech, on the contrary, does not exist by itself. It is like a special effect to enhance the speaker's speech, and without it it may not be at all understandable.
