  • Table top: Present.me – bringing online presentations to life

    by Charlie Simpson

    We believe online presentations are broken. Psychological studies show that the combination of content and a human face is key to keeping an audience engaged. We launched Present.me to solve exactly this problem. Present.me allows anyone to create online presentations that feature synchronised slides and video side-by-side, playable on-demand. Whether it’s pitching for new business, updating your team, setting assignments for students or applying for a job, Present.me allows you to record and share your ideas in a whole new way. This session will reveal why Present.me’s combination of video and content is the perfect way to create online, on-demand presentations that engage and resonate.

    Questions answered :
    What is the story behind Present.me? What issues does Present.me solve? How does Present.me work? What is the Present.me business model?

  • Planning for Success

    by Sharon Palazzo

    Winston Churchill said, ‘He who fails to plan, plans to fail’ If you get into a taxi and you do not know where you wish to go, you are going to have an expensive ride going no where fast. You may have the greatest idea or product on the planet. However if there is no plan on how to take your proposition to market, no one will hear, see and more importantly buy it. Planning may sound boring. However we all do it and we are generally in fact good at it – in certain circumstances. We are probably really happy to plan our next technology purchase, holiday or outing and perhaps less enthusiastic to organise a financial budget, staff personal development plans or a health and safety policy. Having some simple templates to plan for success in all that you do will give you more time to do what you do best! This will be an interactive workshop showing you exactly how to plan for yourself and your business more successfully. We will be exploring techniques and applying them to your working lives. I’ll be using your actual business examples. This way you leave with learnings that you can put to work right away as soon as you are back at your desk. By the end of our time together you’ll have customised simple 5 Step planning tools ensuring you are heading in the right direction and you get to your destination in the shortest possible time.

    Questions answered :
    Why is it important to plan? What if I don’t plan? Are plans set in stone? How can I make time to plan effectively? Will planning kill my creativity, motivation and satisfaction? What if my plans change? What if I hate planning? How can I transfer my skills in areas where I am good at planning to where I am less resourceful? Business plans may vary but are the processes similar? What’s an effective way of planning my day/month/year? Are there any areas of my business that I should not plan? How often should I review my plans?

    Yes
