Presentation Presentation

A session at HOW Interactive Design Conference (HIDC) 2014 — San Francisco

Tuesday 18th November, 2014

9:45am to 10:45am (PST)

Giving presentations is an activity that many designers do not enjoy, so it is often avoided, not practiced, and scheduled only when absolutely necessary. It is however, an important skill for any designer working with clients, collaborating with other designers, engineers and product managers, and for communicating work with leadership in a company.

Giving effective presentations is a critical tool for building support around projects, maintaining momentum, and seeing it through to completion. While the vast majority of your time as a designer will be spent on the craft of design — exploring, sketching, and iterating on design problems — the success of your work will depend on your ability to present that work in a clear and compelling form at the right time to the right people. In this session, you will learn:

1. The importance and value of being good at giving presentations, and having a design team that is good at giving presentations.
2. The habits and practices necessary to become better at giving presentations.
3. How to plan a presentation roadmap to build momentum over the course of a project and get feedback at critical decision points.
4. How to structure presentations to funnel your audience towards your decision point.
5. How to use scenarios to put your audience in the mindset of your user.
6. Formats for effective and immersive presentations at the different stages of the design process.

3 Main Takeaways:
1. The habits and practices necessary to become better at giving presentations.
2. How to plan a presentation roadmap to build momentum over the course of a project and get feedback at critical decision points.
3. Formats for effective and immersive presentations at the different stages of the design process.
