Back in August, I gave a presentation for CPA Australia at Royal on the Park, which had as its objectives:
- How to develop effective reporting mechanisms that ensures data of high integrity and quality
- Responding to management information needs: how to develop a process that ensures timely response
- Other key reporting and systems issues that affect how information is presented and used
I note incidentally that I haven’t posted my speaking notes online yet – I must do that.
Anyway, feedback was good, even if I’ve not picked up any clients out of it :). Here is the feedback the presentation received:
Session Title: ‘Communicating financials to management: Developing effective reporting mechanisms’
Venue: Royal on thePark, Brisbane
Your overall Rating: 4.35
Technical Content rating: 4.52
Presentation Material rating: 4.43
All comments specific to your presentation
- Good presenter. Liked the way he asked what people wanted out of session & made sure he covered those points.
- Very good presenter. Showed a great awareness for presenting on & answering what we wanted to get out of the session. Terrific.
I continue to thank Alan Anderson for showing me his tactic of plain old ‘ask the audience what they want’ for presentations. The audience, not surprisingly, always seems to appreciate it, and it’s hard to miss the mark if you can at least link back to those dot points.
Of course, if someone comes in for the wrong session it can be very entertaining.
