Are These Deadly Presentation Mistakes Stopping You From Succeeding?

M

Rushing to put together a pitch, only to have it rejected. Delaying your progress for months on end with endless back-and-forth.

M

Forgetting about tackling the emotions of your boss or client, leaving them bored and uninspired.

M

Spending days trying to piece your ideas together, but no idea how to make them flow clearly in a presentation.

M

Thinking: “My idea is amazing… so my audience would naturally love it” (You cannot deliver a winning presentation if you ignore your audience).

M

Using jargon or industry lingo to appear more prepared, but end up confusing audiences instead (95% of our clients USED to make this mistake)

M

Doing it the same was you've always done it and expecting different results.

We’ll talk more about these mistakes in our online course and why they’re so fatal.

The Good News Is…You’re Not Alone

We’ve consulted for and trained hundreds of executives from the world’s top organisations on what you’re going to learn. Our list of clientele includes government agencies, Board-of-Directors and MNCs like Mastercard, Nike and Oracle.

We’ve seen the good, the bad and the ugly of how pitches can be.. And suffice to say, it’s more common than you think.

And we’ve taken all those learnings and compiled it into the most potent Storytelling framework SPECIFICALLY tailored to quickly download into your executive brain and go on to quickly crush it in the boardroom.

This is the proven structure we use with mega corporations to distill complex ideas and into persuasive business stories so they win… BIG.

I’m talking about million-dollar decisions and sales contracts brought in using this framework you’ll be exposed to in our course.

“(The course) clearly points out the most effective way of telling stories. A paradigm shift from from compelling people to say YES to making it impossible for them to say NO.”

Imagine….

R

No longer having to feel stuck, unsure and stressed out preparing for an important presentation

R

No more lost opportunities to fellow colleagues who just seem to “talk” better than you.

R

No longer having to feel stuck, unsure and stressed out preparing for an important presentation

R

Being able to win more respect and trust from your boss and clients all because of the new way you’ve learned to pitch.

R

No more yawning, slouching audience members looking bored whenever you speak at a meeting.

R

Having a repeatable process that will give you an unfair advantage in the boardroom versus your colleagues

You can say “Sayonara” to your frustrations…

And look forward to greater job security and promotion prospects as you will never be out-manoeuvred during a pitch ever again. 

Even more so with our uncertain economic outlook (due to Coronavirus)… to grow in your career and professional life, you must stay competitive. 

That means equipping yourself with the highly valued soft skills of top executives to stand out in a sea of noise and move your ideas forward.

Our 5P Framework: The Secret To Effortless Persuasion In The Boardroom

It looks a little something like this:
Don’t let the simplicity fool you.

It’s a thought-process intuitively used by top performers (by that, I mean the C-suites and fastest organisation climbers) in almost every field to win over others. Some of our clients have closed million-dollar deals leveraging this same formula.
Storytelling is pretty cliché… but the truth is that most people don’t know how to leverage the true power of stories to influence others to join your corner and become advocates for your ideas.

In this course, we’ll be teaching you the art of telling what we call: ‘Strategic Stories’.

In turn, you can look forward to winning more deals, more contracts and more respect from your audience if applied correctly.

That’s how we secured top Fortune 500 clients, got on the list of Forbes 30 Under 30, grew our business by 7.5 times and recently won an award for our training programmes.

Module #1: Foundation of Persuasive Presentations

As a corporate professional who often needs to communicate your ideas frequently, there’s nothing more valuable than having a tested and proven structure to influence people.
Abraham Lincoln, Steve Jobs, Martin Luther King Jr… they share a few core principles of Strategic Storytelling (even though they do it differently). And applying these principles can potentially take your career to the next level.

Module #2: Getting Into The Minds Of Your Audience

People don’t care about what you can do. They only care about what you can do for them.

The biggest reason why we fail at our pitches is because of a Priorities mismatch (Your audience don’t see the importance of your issue). In this Module, we teach you how to tap into your audience’s objectives and priorities so that you’re able to craft a presentation that’s hard to ignore.

You’ll learn:

  • The one mindset shift you need to become more “Audience-Centric” when it comes to presentation.
  • Crystallizing The Objective Framework: This template has helped a lot of my students get more buy-in with their bosses and clients when it comes to pitching a new presentation.
  • The “Onion Peeling Technique” so you can get to the heart of what matters and ignore “surface-level” issues your audience doesn’t care about.
  • How to set a specific and actionable “North Star” for your presentation so that your audience knows the purpose of why you’re presenting.
Module #3: Setting Clear Objectives And Finding A Common Goal

The biggest reason why we fail at our pitches is because we neglect one of the most important factors, our objective(s). In this Module, we teach you how to tap into your audience’s objectives and priorities so that you’re able to craft a presentation that’s hard to ignore.

You’ll learn:

  • How to isolate a common goal between you and your audience to get buy-in effortlessly
  • To define clear goals to achieve your objective
Module #4: 5P StorySelling Structure

The Multi-Million dollar Presentation Framework
According to Inc., the top 3 reasons why most presentations fail is because they make one of these mistakes: (1) Having too much Information, (2) Presenting from a wrong POV and (3) Not positioning things differently.

At HighSpark, we’ve created a structure that helps you with this by:

  • Premise: Establish a relevant premise to help you set the right context so they see the problem of what you’re presenting.
  • Proposition: Simplifying all the information you have into one big idea so that your audience can digest it.
  • Plan: Sharing what’s unique about your ideas and how it works.
  • Promise: Giving measurable and tangible case studies and results from implementing your ideas.
  • Permission: Getting permission from your audience to lead them into taking action so you get what you want.
Module #5: Creating engaging story flows by storyboarding
Unfortunately, we live in a world where your audience is perpetually busy and has constant mental chatter which makes it hard to pay attention to you. By injecting logic and order into your story, you can easily sneak past your audience’s mental defenses so they’ll hear you out exactly what you have to say. You’ll learn how to do that in this module.
Module #6: framing key messages so people listen

Now that you have a clear picture of your story flow, framing becomes even more crucial to getting it right. How do you create the right setting by packaging your messages into frames? We’ll give you a deep dive into framing your key messages so people understand and listen to you.

Module #7: Overcoming unsaid objections

The key to winning with your ideas is not to get people to say ‘yes’, but to give them no reason to say ‘No’. We’ll share with you our unique framework to identify objections before they arise and arrest all doubt, leaving your listeners with only one question : “How do I sign off on this?” Discover how to anticipate and prepare for any objections. This works so well, they’ll think you’re a ‘minder-reader’.

Module #8: Writing Headlines That Sell Your Ideas

Famous ad-man David Ogilvy once said – “On the average, five times as many people read the headline as read the body copy. When you have written your headline, you have spent eighty cents out of your dollar.”

This rings true for ad mediums as well as presentations. We’ll teach you to write headlines that leave your audiences enamored by both the clarity and persuasiveness of your pitches

Why STS Online is different from other storytelling courses

Z

We’ve designed and tested it vigorously

Too many courses out there share theories without application. We’ve tested these methods you’ll be learning with clients from 100s of industries – and they work.
Z

It works for non-salespeople

Most storytelling courses target business owners and salespeople, but what if you’re not ‘selling’ a product or service? We’ve tailored it to work in a corporate setting when pitching internally or externally.
Z

We help people tell strategic stories for a living

For the past 7 years, I’ve helped our clients successfully achieve their desired results with narratives, it’s not a ‘side-hobby’ for me and my team. We get results and we’re good at it. Period.

You’ve read this far, why haven’t you joined us yet?

Think about this…

What would being able to magically persuade your boss, customers etc. to say yes to your ideas in less time mean for you?

Not to mention.. Each of those hours you save, you’ll be able to spend with your family, doing other things to grow in your professional life or just sit around and relax without the stress.

The thing is, the above can only happen if you don’t stay put, take action and invest in yourself.

Say goodbye to the days of feeling stressed about important meetings, overwhelmed with the prospect of rejection and instead look forward to being able to reclaim your time and become the professional you always wanted to be.

Enroll today. You deserve it.

“Where Do I Sign?” And Other Common Questions
