5. Practice the Presentation.
Don’t just tell the story. It has to be delivered with confidence and authority.
- Use the right format. Using dynamic and colorful charts, graphs and photos adds value to the presentation by bringing it to life.
- Generate effective commentary. Challenge that each bullet is clear and has the right meaning. It should be succinct, clean and effective.
- Executive highlights. Incorporate valuable high-level detail that presents a complete picture to any stakeholders who may not have had the document delivered in person.
- Invite feedback. Make sure to build in time that allows the client to initiate dialogue on any component or section.
- Be respectful of time. Schedule the appropriate amount of time to deliver the message. Set the schedule for the next review before leaving the meeting.
When completed, a successful Quarterly Business Review should present the client with a low effort, high information view of business that delivers controls. When it’s delivered in a skilled way, with confidence and authority, it can confirm the partnership, create transparency and provide the confidence for planning in future quarters.
