Preparing professional presentations
How the App works
Presentations are the ideal opportunity to show the very best version of you, your organisation, your products and your services. This includes a complex combination of your skills, knowledge, behaviours and values all wrapped up in your important personal connection and engagement with the audience. The mobile App will allow you to plan presentations and invite peers and professionals with whom you are engaged in a knowledge sharing, structured mentoring or experiential learning program and obtain invaluable feedback from them directly to your mobile App. The App will also allow the mentee, mentor and manager to confidentially view the collective feedback and ratings and work together on any developmental areas identified.
Developing Professional Presentations
Many professional bodies and institutions, as well as prospective employers, will require a presentation and professional interview with a panel of senior people. This is therefore a critical skill to develop and perfect and a key developmental factor in mastering presentation skills and professional interviews is the ability to listen to feedback from a variety of different people and to be able to adapt to the important messages in the feedback.
The App functionality will allow your peers and professional colleagues to give you very valuable feedback in four specific developmental areas as well as a consolidated rating on their enjoyment of your Presentation. You then have the ability to confidentially review the feedback and comments in you own time and work on any opportunities for improvement that you identify.

Presentation skills is one of the most frequently trained “soft skills” in the world and is not just a competency required for public speakers and presenters.
Everyone will at some stage experience the important need to be able to effectively present, not only themselves and their professional progress in some form of interview, but also their organisation or their own services in the most professional and compelling way possible.
This App provides mentors and peers with the ability to rate the Presentation on a scale from 1 to 5 as well as the ability to offer feedback, advice and insight on how to improve the presentations in the future:
Understanding the Presentations Rating model
This App provides all participants with the ability to rate the Presentations on a scale from 1 to 5 as explained below:
1 = Low Standard
Major improvement needed
Less than acceptable and does not meet minimum requirements in almost all areas.
2 = Limited Standard
Some improvement needed
Acceptable in some areas, but still lacking in specific and important areas.
3 = Average Standard
Acceptable level of performance in many areas and meets most requirements.
4 = Very Good Standard
More than acceptable and exceeds requirements in most areas.
5 = Excellent Standard
Exceptional level of performance in all areas
