Extreme slide makeover results in a stronger campaign for the NJ Sharing Network
NJ Sharing Network speakers were held captive by the words on their slides. After participating in the Professionally Speaking workshop they revamped their presentations replacing content heavy slides with captivating images.
Reflecting on the change, Jackie Lue Raia, Manager, Foundation Development commented,
“The impact was immediate and remarkable. We’re presenting the same information, but in a way that’s much more inspiring. Our audience is hearing our message and participating in a conversation rather than being passive listeners, they want to help.”
Thank you to Morgan Johnson, Hospital Services Manager at NJ Sharing Network for providing this “makeover” currently being used in her presentations.
Slide #1: Who is NJ Sharing Network?
Before: Bulleted information describing NJ Sharing Network
After: An image of the “people” that are NJ Sharing Network
Slide #2: Your Role As Nurse
Before: Bulleted information defining the role
After: An image of the nursing staff is displayed while discussing the specifics of their role. Note: The presenter is dropping in “real-time” images of the nurses in the audience to engage and personalize the presentation.
Slide #3: Two Types of Donation
Before: Text-heavy and detailed
After: Simplified yet still makes the point
Slide #4: Regulatory Agencies
Before: Listed all the regulatory agencies (the audience didn’t need all that detail!)
After: Changed the title and added an image that said it all!
