Attention Grabber

From “How to structure a presentation” (emphasis added by me):

This is the most important part of the presentation and serves two main purposes

  1. To act as an attention grabber for the audience
  2. To let your elevated levels of adrenaline and testosterone racing through your blood stream settle down, so that you can relax into your presentation

I usually have the problem with adrenaline rush. In the first minute of the presentation, I can feel my blood rushing all over my body and I can’t usually concentrate. This is why I like to start my presentation with something that gives me time to cool down before the real stuff begins. I’ve tried with poems, quotes, and this time I’m experimenting with video that my group mate found on Youtube.

Thailand has really good advertising firms around. They can deliver messages successfully without employing expensive celebrities as spokespersons or using elaborated computer effects.

Two more slides that I have completed and am satisfied with:

There are more to the slides than just static images. Maybe I’d blog more about them when I have the time. Now it’s back to work.

  1. yeah, i luv this ad too. the thais are amazing. check out the cheers beer ads (funny to death) and the life insurance ones (bring tears to my eyes each time I watch them) if u hvnt seen them before. they have such a flair of dramatization and they are absolutely creative. I mean even if we had such great scripts in spore, our talents won’t be able to pull it off too unfortunately. 😛
