There is no shortage of uses for creating and delivering presentations using mind maps. Consider the classic business examples highlighted below:
At this juncture, how about we take a look at some specific presentation examples more in depth, and examine how NovaMind can deliver top value to your business?
Business Presentations for Your Clients
Businesses have found NovaMind a great way to create presentations because they can be delivered professionally and clearly– just the way clients like them to be.
A strong presentation using key points of contact can really win business. Now, that’s not new. What’s new is the extra edge NovaMind can provide. Presenters using NovaMind can listen to where potential clients express their greatest needs and tailor the presentation on the spot to what they hear.
It’s so easy! Just hide the topics with information that doesn’t matter (they’re asking very few questions here!) and show the topics with content that gets them excited. As you listen, you’ll get pretty strong ideas about how the talk will keep them with you.
Control Your Presentation Focus, No Matter Which Approach You Use
What if you have a silent crowd, what then? Maybe you’ve fronted a room filled with people keenly interested but who know almost nothing about the subject. You don’t want to overload that poor group with an over-the-top presentation. It’s not worth it just because you’re worried there may not be a next time to impress that group!
Here’s the solution. NovaMind Presenter, a tool within NovaMind’s platinum mind mapping edition, will keep it simple. With its zoom in and out feature, viewers can see first the overview, then the focus. This animated zoom in will keep your audience on each topic, one very simple area of the map at a time. No worries.
By the way, a static mind map, unveiled one topic at a time, as we mentioned above, can be equally effective if you project from the computer onto a screen. Try both ways and see which approach feels right for you. Don’t forget to ask questions to get the audience involved. There’s no quicker way to break down barriers than to ramp up the communication.
Business Presentations for Your Staff
Often, company managers have a need to explain to their staff the particular strategy and marketing approach of the business. Joe’s Motors, for example, has realized this as an important need. So they created a mind map with all their information on it. They broke the business down into specific categories: Service, Quality, Target market, Business Ethics, Marketing and Sales, Placement and Staffing.
Then, they filled in the sub-topics of these topics so that it was clear just what made them Joe’s Motors, and not just another auto shop.
When presenting this to the existing staff, they were able to see how all the parts work together, why their particular job mattered, and how they could provide value added to the business. Seeing the whole mind map helped them make new connections, because now they could see where they could use their talents and better contribute. Nobody felt left out or overlooked!
Now, back to you and the company presentation for your business…
Maybe not all of the topics get filled in, by the way. Maybe the presentation is happening just because this fresh new crop of highly networked employees wants to be involved as much as you. They are looking to pro-actively engage with all the important aspects of the business you are communicating to them now. This is an excellent chance to let their ideas and skills make an impact. You just might be surprised!
In this way, the important strategies of a company will be emphasized, becoming an integrated, well understood visual, auditory and emotional experience that will help everyone attend to and remember the information presented.
They will also feel a part of the strategy as you encourage them to contribute ideas of their own. Remember how effective people can be when they are active players.
