KISS – Keep It Simple Stupid

August 4, 2017 | Pix Jonasson

When I first started presenting, I wanted to share EVERYTHING I knew about the chosen topic. And I mean everything and in the one presentation!!! The more experience I got ‘under my belt’ and the more I studied other successful speakers, the more I realised the importance of NOT sharing everything I knew.

As you may have heard previously. Don’t suffer from ‘verbal diarrhea.’ It’s critical to deliver a clear and concise message in an easy to understand way. A quality presentation is like a good book or movie. It starts with the beginning, followed by the middle, then ending or conclusion.

Basically, it’s the old KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) method. The KISS principle states that most systems work best if they are kept simple rather than made complicated; therefore simplicity should be a key goal in design and unnecessary complexity should be avoided.- 

When presenting you need to say what you want to say – say it AND then say why you said it.

Having a definite ‘Call to Action’ in your close is a good idea too.  Give your audience a way of being able to reinforce your key messages and/or ‘take a piece of you’ away with them. Otherwise you do your audience a dis-service if you only present – full stop – with no opportunity for any follow up.

See you on the stages of the world. Dream BIG!
