Ways to Prepare Your Presentations

Many a times when we have been asked to give a presentation, some of us (including myself) tend to find organisation and flow in the talk challenging.

Over times, I began to adopt the below general simple format to help me organise in my presentation:

1. Open: Present the objectives of the talk

2. Key Points: State 3 – 5 major areas my talk will cover

3. Details: Discuss the details of each key points.

4. Example: Give at least one example, whenever appropriate, to the audience so that they can understand better.

5. Close: Recap my key points

6. Next steps: Tell the group what will be happening next.

I hope that helps. Keep the questioning coming. Let’s share & learn.

“Making a Difference in Facility Management”

I’m Back…

Hello to ALL!

This blog is still live. Thanks to those who concern and feedback…..

I’m back and I will catch up with where I’ve stop. Yes, it’s been a long while and I’m excited to share the experiences and learnings that I’ve been through over the last months.

A good friend of mine, David Cassavant, from the USA, shared with me his recent teleseminar on “The Swine Flu Pandemic: Urban Myths and Real Solutions for Preparing Your Business”. He has sent me the recorded teleseminar and its power-point slides. Here is the link: 

Enjoy! I will catch up soon.

“Making a Difference in Facility Management….”

Overcoming Financial Challenges in Managing Facilities Efficiently

What did I speak on during the Facility Management 2009 Conference?

I was privilege to start off the conference by sharing on how we as FM practitioners can possibly overcome financial challenge in managing facilities efficiently by:

  1. Explaining the potential of the practice of FM as a value-added function and business advantage to organisations
  2. Reducing Costs while giving quality services
  3. Shifting from preventive maintenance to pro-active maintenance
  4. Battling with increasing energy costs
  5. Identifying facility management goals that align with corporate goals
  6. Maintaining a competitive edge while providing efficient facilities

It was a challenging delivery for me as I was requested to address the above concerns with 40 mins. My goal for the presentation was not to impress but impress upon fellow FM practitioners that this is the time that we can demonstrate our value-add capabilities and potential advantages to our organisations. 

To Your FM Success!
