People usually deliver the exact same presentation via different platforms… but that’s a bad idea. If your presentation isn’t optimised for the platform you’re using then it’s not as good as it should be!
Below are just some of the delivery methods you might need your presentation optimised for:
When presenting live your slides need to serve as strong visual aids to help get your message across and not distract from it. They need to be structured to help your audience follow and process your story, and need to work in sync with the presenter – assisting the presenter(s), and not replacing them.
A web presentation should be self-running (not too fast and not too slow) and self-contained so it works without a presenter. It needs to be well-scripted and focused to get your story across succinctly, and also needs to be dynamic enough (yet not distracting) to keep viewers engaged. A website video is a powerful tool that works for you 24/7.
An emailed presentation can allow the end-user complete control over speed and navigation; allowing them to move on when ready and jump around the deck. Or it can be a well-timed self-running presentation. Either way, an emailed presentation needs to be self-contained and work without a presenter, but should still be well structured and visual to keep the end-user engaged and focused.
A tablet presentation should be highly visual and contain very light content. A tablet presentation can be told as a story from beginning to end. Or more usually as an interactive experience, using the tablet’s touchscreen capability to allow the presenter or end-user complete control over navigation.
