A4 Folders: Presentation Done the Right Way

A4 folders are also known as presentation folders, which can also be found in different sizes, such as A5 and A6, but the A4 size is still the most common and popular. A4 folders are used in a number of situations, from board meetings where the folder is simply a convenient way to organise a series of A4 documents, to conferences and networking events where the folder can also serve to advertise and promote a company name or logo through custom printing on the folder cover.

Presentation folders are usually made from hard board covered in PVC or polypropylene. They can be created in practically any colour, or combination of colours, and they can also be produced in a variety of textures. For example, a black or dark brown A4 folder with a leather-look textured finish has always been very popular. Translucent and transparent coverings are also popular, and can be available with various textured finishes and in any colour as well

With an increased interest and focus on environmentally friendly products, more and more manufacturers of A4 folders are producing their ranges in recycled PVC or polypropylene. Plastics are not known to be particularly friendly to the environment, but recycling already produced plastics is one effective way of overcoming objections and lowering any negative effects there may be. It means that with all the millions of presentation folders constantly being produced, many of them, once they reach the end of their useful life, are being reused in ways that lessens the burden on the planet’s natural resources.

Most A4 folders are personalised through printing techniques. A number of printing methods can be used on folders, including full colour litho, foil blocking, silkscreen and digital. Each one has its strong points and may be better suited for a particular situation over the others. This is something that a company wishing to purchase personalised A4 folders should inquire about to be aware of the various options. Almost any kind of complicated artwork or specialised printing can be done on request, and in fact, the more unusual your A4 folder is, the more likely it will get noticed.

Conclusion

A4 folders are a common sight at annual conferences, trade fairs and all kinds of networking events. They are a convenient way to carry promotional materials, A4 printed documents and the like. The colour of the folder and logo or printed company name prominently displayed on the folder can serve as a visual signal to others who may be interested in what the folder contains, or at least, what the person holding the A4 folder has to say.

Build a Home Based Business Online Instead of Going to a University

The reason that you should build the home based business online instead of going to a University is simply because you will get a higher return on your investment. When you get started in a University you usually have to borrow a lot of money from banks and by the time you graduate you are going to have to pay it back slowly for the rest of your life.

But when you build a home based business online the time and money that you invest into it will be worth it for the rewards that you’re going to get in the long. If you take two people and you do an experiment. One person goes to university for four years and the other person starts building a home based business online for four years and then compare the two results and you will see what I’m talking about.

Of course we are assuming that both people are dedicated to what they want to do and are willing to put the time and effort that it requires. The one difference that is going to be there is that the person who does the home based business is probably going to love to do it while the person who graduates into a job is going to hate the fact that they have to work for someone else.

It is not only about making more money but as I mentioned before you’re going to actually enjoy what you are doing and at the same time you will be helping people. The only problem that I have with a University is the fact that you put in the hard work, dedication and time that it requires only to graduate and work for someone else. By working for someone else you’re putting your future in the hands of other people that can at any given time fire you for no given reason.

If you dedicate the same amount of time as going to a University in to building a business you’re actually going to be building your future and you will have full control of your life.

Secrets for Giving a Non-Sleep Inducing Presentation

The presentation is starting. A few minutes into the presentation, we often find ourselves either thinking of a million other things, or are bored out of our minds. Why don’t people realize that it doesn’t matter how amazing the information is that they are putting forth, none of it will matter if it does not “engage” and “touch” their audience – leaving them wanting to hear more? Knowing that many of us have had to sit through presentations like this, let’s now turn it around. You find that you are going to be presenting to a group. How can you reach the part of your audience’s “cognitive” thinking to ensure that their minds and “ears” are open?

Here are just a few of my presentation secrets that will keep your audience hanging on every word.

During any presentation – large or small, you need to make sure that you speak like a person – not like a textbook. To begin, you need to not speak to your audience as if you are Sheldon from the “Big Bang Theory”. This is not to in any way imply that your audience is “stupid”, but rather, it’s a reminder that you need to speak to them in “real” terms. Do not try too hard, or use too many irrelevant words of pictures. I often look to Steve Jobs, and how he did his presentations. Standing on that stage, he believed in his product, and spoke to his audience in a simple yet effective manner. His slides were kept to a minimum, but were VERY IMPACTFUL. He knew that he did not need a lot of fancy PowerPoint to impress his audience. When preparing and giving a presentation, keep it simple.

Your first impression could be compared to being your business card, in effect, and it will determine in an instant, whether a person will listen to you, or not.

If you don’t make them want to listen right at the start, they probably won’t. Establish your credibility – gaining their respect early on. It’s been found that most people remember mostly what you say first. State your really important information right at the beginning. Be clear and concise. The rest of your presentation should then explain your reasoning and your key points further.

Your presentation, as well as your initial introduction are extremely important, and should not be taken lightly – EVER!

You are not lecturing students in a classroom. Think back to when you were last sitting in a classroom listening to someone. Did you like those “teachers” who just stood there and spewed out information, or do you remember the ones most who were engaging and included the group in the conversation? Exactly. Aim for that two-way communication in every presentation that you make. Always make an extreme effort to CONNECT with your audience. Once you’ve got them, you’ve got them.

Also try this when preparing your next slide presentation. With regard to what you are showing on each particular slide, image that you are passing this slide as you are driving by quickly. Did it get your attention? Were you able to get it’s message quickly? If you do not understand it, you should probably re-work it.

Standing in one place for the entire presentation is another poison to your presentation. While you shouldn’t be pacing around nervously either, practice being comfortable moving around the stage, or front of a room, knowing when to pause when making an important statement, etc. Practice ahead of time until it becomes second nature.

One of the last secrets I want to mention is: know your audience, and adapt yourself accordingly. Keep them and their interests in mind at all times. If you hone in on what gets them to pay attention, the rest will be a breeze. Don’t ramble on about your accomplishments, or your company’s accomplishments. Make it about them – how you can solve THEIR PROBLEMS.

It’s always gonna be about them – your clients – your audience. Having said this, you do still HAVE THE POWER to control the conversations – to get their attention by paying attention to the points I mentioned above, while making it seem as if it’s all about them. The power comes when you actually “reach” people with your “message”, leaving them wanting more.

There is no excuse for a lousy presentation. Put the time and effort in, and the rewards will easily follow. And, if you find yourself needing help with your presentation endeavors, just ask!
