Learning, communications, and social media consultants all have to make presentations to sell their ideas and strategies. In the same way, trainers and all presenters must also gain the audience’s attention by quickly proving that the content will be relevant, engaging, and perhaps even entertaining. So, starting with a “Wow” opener is important. Video can provide that wow because it can be carefully planned in advance, can include images and audio that grab the imagination, generate emotion, and establish both buy-in and credibility.
The video below was designed to do all that. It was created for a presentation to business executives at a solar energy company. Watch it and see how it meets those criteria and what ideas it gives you for your next presentation.
