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.

Stories that stick workshop

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.

9 comprehensive online modules

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

Blended Workshops for teams

Common Questions

What if I have more or less number of pax vs what's stated?

The corporate packages come in flat rates and not based on a per pax calculation.

This means, the fees for a class of 8 will be that of the “up to 12 pax” package; fees for a class of 16 will be that of an “up to 20 pax” package.

What is the difference between blended, virtual, offline?

Blended: 

A combination of synchronous and asynchronous learning that’s stretch out over a week or a month.  The benefits of blended learning are plenty:

 

  • learners can juggle their life and work commitments on top of learning.
  • learners can learn at their own pace and speed based on their proficiency level. 
  • learners are better able to internalise and apply concepts.
  • learners take charge of their learning through individual assignments in the self-paced components while learn from their peers in the live group coaching/discussion session. 

Based on the survey results, the majority of learners preferred blended learning (versus traditional offline) and gave a higher effectiveness score for it. 

 

Offline: 

Traditional 1-day workshop with in-class activities and group work. Learning happens synchronously. 

Virtual: 

A cut and paste of the offline version of the workshop. This means, learners will learn synchronously over a full-day virtual session over a web conferencing app. 

We do not recommend this approach, especially for this course.  

When will the zoom coaching be?

For corporate runs, the Zoom coaching component can be split into a few sessions adding up to a total of 3 hours.  The trainer will discuss with your company’s liaison officer to determine how best to sequence the Zoom session(s) with the self-paced learning modules. 

 

Here are some options: 

1. Self-paced + one session of 3-hour Zoom 

2. 1 hour Zoom + Self-paced + 1 hour Zoom + Self-paced + 1 hour Zoom

3. 1 hour Zoom + Self-paced + 2-hour Zoom

Can I convert this into an offline course?

Definitely.

There are 2 options, which you can choose from for the offline format. 

Option A: Full Offline

Offline classes will be conducted in a full-day synchronous workshop at the client’s premise or selected venue. The packages here do not include cost of Venue, Refreshments, Logistics.

For this option, learners will have a copy of printed worksheets. Learners will not be able to access any digital materials including digital worksheets and online videos. 

Option B: Blended (Offline + Online)

Live Zoom coaching components will be converted into a half-day in-person synchronous group coaching session. 

Self-paced modules will remain. 

For this option, learners will be able to access any digital materials including digital worksheets and online videos.  

 

Prices may differ. 

 

What are the payment terms?

Lunch is not provided but there will be light refreshments during the tea breaks. The nearest eateries are at Fusionopolis and Timbre+. 

What if I have more than 20 pax

We recommend clients to keep the class size small for optimal engagement through the screen. Do contact us at [email protected] or +65 8123 2362 if you’d like us to make special arrangements. Additional fees apply for additional number of learners. 

Can I get a refund if some learners drop out?

The payment is non-refundable if you cannot make it for the workshop. The learner may transfer his/her slot to another person. If so, do inform us at least 5 working-days in advance via email [email protected] so we can email the blended course instructions to the right learners.
