The power of a presentation

Diksha Chakravarti of Fix Me

The power of a presentation

As one of the founders for the 10-12 Business club I am often telling members on the benefits of promoting your business through presentations at our monthly meetings. However the reality for some, to stand up in front of a lot of people is a difficult prospect and that I can understand too. However today I would like to share with you an example of the power of a clear and concise presentation.

dikshaOne of our original members Diksha Chakravarti of FixMe has recently been retraining in Clinical Hypnotherapy to add as an additional treatment for her clients. Diksha shared with us some of the case studies of her patients and why she had chosen to train in this new skill. I might add this is not the first time I have heard Diksha speak and as always she was very entertaining using a funny story to share her message, but at the same time being clear and concise as to what her message was and what she was looking for us to help her in return.

As a result of her presentation, I have since recommended her to two or my own contacts that could benefit from her newly gained experience.

How long did it take for that message to stick in my head? just a 10 minute presentation by Diksha in a clear and informative manner.

Will she get any business from the presentation? Well I know she is going to be called by two people and I am sure that her follow up will be as good as her presentation.

If you want to spread the word about your business, gain new customers then consider placing your company on one of our meetings agendas and speaking at the 10-12 Business Club



Fabulous Speakers and Presentations in Berkshire

This month at the 10-12 Business Club we have been treated to some fabulous speakers at each of our events. We kicked off the tail end of this month at Maidenhead with a presentation by Abi Woolhouse from Stratagem IPM on Trade Marks and Copyright. Abi covered the different types of work that could be considered under the copyright law and pointed out the pitfalls in not considering ownership of copyright. It certainly made us all think about what we do in a day to day basis in our working day. If you missed this excellent presentation, don’t worry, it was so good she will be back to do another presentation for the Marlow group in May.

Jacky Bloomfield of M and J Bloomfield gave a great insight on how to use other peoples images and how to respect their copyright. If you need to know more about using other peoples images, then Jacky Bloomfield  is the person to contact.

Images are often shared through social media, but just make sure you know what copyright applies to that particular and comply where necessary to avoid a charge for using the image.


Alix HorneOur Marlow meeting continued the theme as we had Alix Horne of Amax Designs for her very interesting presentation on ‘The Essence of Logo Design’. Alix walked us through the process of choosing a logo and how a designer creates the logo design from the brief given. If you have never gone through the process of choosing a logo, then Alix provided some great tips and feedback on what to do and what to take into consideration.

Alix walked us through a design that she had created for a client, taking the concept of black and white into the chosen colors and eventually the final logo. A long, detailed process that provided the perfect results for the client.
