Are you in Sales? Don't answer "No" too quickly.
Do you ever present to executives to gain their approval for a project?
Do you present monthly financial figures and recommendations for managers to approve?
Do you teach others procedures or skills that you want them to use on the job?
Do you hold regular update meetings to keep everyone on the team motivated towards the goals?
If you answered "Yes" to any of these four questions, you are in sales.
In all of the cases above, you are "selling" your ideas to others inside your organization. You want them to "buy" your viewpoint or recommendations and take action. So you should be working to make your PowerPoint presentations as effective as possible so that your projects get approved, recommendations implemented and colleagues motivated to be successful. If you've been wondering if your internal group could benefit from a Think Outside The Slide workshop, the answer is definitely "Yes".
