That’s Entertainment: Tips and Tools for Improving Your Presentations

Have you ever attended a presentation that contained important information of interest but was so difficult to watch or so boring that you missed much of the content? Although attorneys are often perceived as good public speakers, there is always room to improve your preparation and/or delivery skills. Whether it is teaching CLE presentations to your colleagues, speaking to civic groups or doing pitches for new potential clients, better presentations produce better results. Still giving presentations without a PowerPoint? Then you are shortchanging the visual learners in your audience. PowerPoint is an easy tool and you can quickly learn the basics. On the other hand, you certainly don’t want to fall into the trap of boring your audience with what is often been described as “death by bullet point.” How do you locate graphic images to include in your presentations without violating another’s copyright? This session will focus on tips and tools that will help you locate and include humor, images, zoom functions, and more to engage, focus and entertain clients, jurors, and even colleagues.

OBA MAP Director Jim Calloway has given hundreds of presentations and states, “I have two primary subject matters; management, which many lawyers deem to be boring, and technology, which many lawyers deem to be intimidating. So, I’d better attempt to be entertaining.” OBA Practice Management Advisor Darla Jackson has served as a college and law school professor and instructor.
