Debunk the myths that hinder capture managers, business development professionals and proposal managers from developing and presenting high-scoring orals. You'll learn how to avoid the pitfalls and acquire the key ingredients for success when making oral presentations to the government.

Orals myths will be de-bunked:

  • There is such a thing as a "Winning Oral Presentation”
  • Slides are the most important component of orals
  • Storyboards should be used as the first step of your presentation
  • Messages can be added by the presenters later
  • Speakers can multitask (meaning keep their current customer satisfied while fully participating in oral presentations)
  • Daily dry runs lead to a high-scoring oral
  • Executives don't have to participate until the color reviews begin

The pitfalls and how to avoid them:

  • The slide deck should include everything from your written proposal
  • Telling your story the way you think it flows best (even if this is different from the order of the Section L and M requirements)
  • Executives telling the presenters what to say
  • Using laser or any other kind of pointer
  • Writing detailed speaking notes for each slide in the notes section of slide software
  • Constant interruptions and disruptions
