Making Meetings Memorable

Ever wonder why TV commercials tend to grab your attention while business meetings can end up like a snooze? It is all about effective messaging, which compels you into action. However, the ability to move people does not involve magic powers, but rather effective communication. Applying these effective communication techniques can turn your business meetings from dragging routines into memorable conferences.

Comprehension

When presenting during a business meeting, not only you should present your report as factual as possible, but you should also make sure that your audience understands your main message. To achieve this, you need to make your message as clear and as sharp as possible. It also helps to repeat the message several times during your presentation. Your language should also be simple, without going into jargon or other technical terms.

Connection

It is not enough that your audience instantly remember your message. Rather, this communicated idea should resonate with the audience, has meaning and significance for them, and would trigger an irrational or emotional response. Such reaction would spark new behaviors and actions.

Credibility

The message, no matter how moving, can still fall on deaf ears if the audience doe not believe with the speaker. Your communicated idea not only should have an effective and credible speaker, but should also be constructed in such a way that the audience will agree with the message.

Contagiousness

It is very important that your message should be moving, believable, and connecting enough that your audience can spread to word to other people on their own. To make your message contagious, it has to be energetic, new, different, and memorable.
