The Bangladesh’s government has ordered Muhammad Yunus from his post as head of his microfinance bank Wednesday.

The Grameen Bank has stated that Muhammad will remain in charge and that it would fight the decision.

Do you know who your audience is?. Attendees often pick sessions based on classifications you provided for the presentation. Give them what they want and meet your audience’s expectations. Present real life examples that are sure to catch their attention. Don’t forget to share best practices, tips/tricks and even lessons learned to support your message. Your audience will thank you.
How insightful are you? Show them why you are a valued expert speaker. Audiences appreciate an insider’s glimpse into what others are doing. Consider incorporating actual Mediasite content, demos, photos, and screenshots into your presentation. Highlight your organization, but do it briefly. You are there as a representative and speaker, so choose your words wisely. Limit the amount of time spent talking about your organization and its history. You can include real life examples that apply to your organization and mix in a variety of examples from other organizations.
Share links. Consider providing your audience links to additional reference materials related to your presentation. While your at it, increase your networking by adding links to your blog. By inviting your audience to connect with you, you’ll be able to create new business opportunities, while enhancing your credibility through insightful blogging.
Create a memorable PowerPoint presentation by following 5 simple steps. These tips cover the agenda slide, graphic design, information per slide, ideal length for a presentation, and a checklist that is sure to make your presentation an effective one. Learn how to avoid common pitfalls that leave your presentation on snooze, rather than insightful, radiant, and memorable.
Nothing can diminish a listener’s attention faster than a poorly constructed agenda slide. The purpose of the agenda slide is to give the listeners a general layout of your presentation. It is important to keep these points short and to the point. A good presentation will describes these main points in depth as the presentation progresses. How about the visual aesthetics of the agenda slide? Use vibrant colors. It can excite the senses that naturally increase attention, thus reinforcing your presentation. Don’t forget to display your agenda in a visually striking way. Numbered lists have gone out of style, so depict progression in a different manner.
Avoid complex graphics.
What section of the slide are you referring to? Keep in mind that complex graphics will distract your audience from the point you are trying to get across. Keep it simple, but memorable. Also remember that your audience does not carry binoculars with them to conferences, so avoid slides with tiny fonts. Everyone in the audience should be able to clearly read and understand your slide.
Do not cram information into a slide
Emphasize key messages in detail through your speech and not your slide. Highlight the messages and keywords in your slide by breaking it down to its fundamentals. What you say and what you have written on your slides can be different levels of detail.
Make the length of your presentation just right
If your presentation is too short, it will leave your audience scratching their heads and asking for more information. You want to provide them enough information to convey the overall goal. Too much information, and your audience will daydream and fiddle with their iPhones. Presentations that last 10 to 20 minutes are much more impressionable than anything above 20 minutes, or a presentation below 10 minutes. The same theory goes for the number of slides that you include in a presentation. Remember to keep your slides short and simple, they are reinforcements to your overall presentation. Stay under 20 slides, so that your audience will remember and reference a slide when it is time for questions.
What separates you from the rest?
Consider these 3 questions when constructing your presentation.
- What makes what you are saying any different to anyone else talking on the same subject?
- What makes what you are saying different for this audience than any other audience?
- What makes what you are saying any different now to 6 months ago or in 6 months time?

Due to Twitter’s limit on the number of character restraints, pharmaceutical companies are puzzled as to how they can address drug risks and side effects. Is 140 characters enough to fill a legal disclaimer? Many companies wont event risk using twitter and avoid social media all together. The negative publicity is enough to scare big pharma away. So is it possible to remain compliant, reveal full disclosure, and still stay under 140 characters? If yes leave your comments! One idea that comes to mind is creating a tweet that takes you to a landing page describing full risks and side effects. Whats yours? Take the poll!
