If you want your presentation to be informative and fun and memorable, take a lesson from the hosts of Top Gear.
It's a show about cars. And in the course of each show, various cars are driven, raced, analyzed, discussed and thoroughly examined.
However, the way the information is delivered is what makes it memorable. In every episode, the hosts find a way to show the cars' performance and features while also making a game out of driving the car.
Here are just a few examples of what they've done:
Raced full-size cars using remote controls
Raced three cars as far as they would go on one tank of gas
Raced a car to the top of a mountain against a rock climber climbing the cliff face
Raced a car to the airport against a boat and a bike
And one of my favorites: Placed one car on top of the other, with the steering wheel in one car and the brakes/accelerator in the other. Two drivers had to become one to race the car.
Sure, it's all silliness. But it gets your attention. It's entertaining. And you also learn a lot about the cars.
From driving the car around a race track to jumping it over a trailer, Top Gear takes a show about cars and makes it unusual, unpredictable and endlessly fascinating! Can your audiences say the same about your presentations?
