Could you present your knowledge to others – and become one of the “go-to” speakers in the Dynamics 365 ecosystem?
Here are some tips to being a great conference session presenter.
- Present unique session content – If folks have heard your pitch elsewhere they’re likely not to come back next time you present. They want you to be fresh and innovative at all times.
- Speak to the level of the attending audience – Technical sessions at the eXtreme365 Dubrovnik for Partners event, for instance, will be conducted at the 300 – 400 level and contain content that is difficult to find in other places.
- Be technical in a technical session, it’s the language your participants speak! – Showing code during the Partner event is encouraged in the 300 level and expected in the 400 level.
- Sales & Presales sessions – Focus on the Intelligent Business Cloud value proposition, demonstration tips and tricks, competitive selling and closing the deal.
- When talking marketing – Address the topics of digital marketing and adapting your marketing strategy to the behaviors of today’s customer.
- Use real-world examples whenever possible. – If you use examples your audience can emotionally connect to, you’d done your job. And stick to current or cutting edge trends and examples, don’t relive the distant past.
- Keep in good touch with the event host It helps you ensure your presentation meets their needs and the audience expectation.
- Be ready to share – Presenters should be willing to share any code presented and not violate any IP restrictions from customers. This might mean a code rewrite if necessary.
- Keep your session educational – Your audience wants to take value away from your presentation – and you want to make your knowledge as useful as possible.
