Six rules to delivering a powerful financial presentation

Public speaking, the number one fear of most people, can be overcome. Analyse one of the key soft skills that accountants need to possess in order to engage stakeholders and help decision making.

This briefing outlines six rules that can help professionals deliver financial information in an impactful way, including: 

  1. It’s all about the audience
  2. Let go of the need for perfection
  3. Grab their attention
  4. Tell the story behind the numbers
  5. Use pictures to enhance the data
  6. Simplify.

Facts, figures, charts and variances are merely data. The real value in a presentation is first in translating the data into information, and then transforming this into knowledge. This is the transition from “what” to “so what” to “now what.”
