Use TheBrain for Outstanding Presentations

Tired of your same old PowerPoint or are you trying to communicate complex ideas that go beyond slides? Use TheBrain to dazzle your audience with your visual connections and then continue the momentum with a live knowledgebase in your Brain afterward. This month we will be exploring using your Brain for presentations and meeting management. Watch this month’s webinar to get the scoop:

Watch_Now


TheBrain can be used as a presentation and persuasion tool for more effective communication before, during and after your meetings. Below are three stages of meeting management that your Brain can help you with.

Here is an overview of what we covered:

Three Phases for Better Presentations with TheBrain

1. Before Presentation

  1. Organize ideas and agenda with Thoughts
  2. Pin key Thoughts so you remember them
  3. Add zoomable icons to Thoughts
  4. Add Thought Types and Tags
  5. Adjust animation speed

2. During Presentation

  1. Wander your Brain before the meeting starts to peek people’s interest
  2. Use TheBrain’s Presentation Mode (Under View Menu)
  3. Switch to Expanded and Outline View for bigger picture
  4. Instant Activate gets you to whatever you need to talk about instantly
  5. Create new Thoughts from your meeting discussion live and make the presentation interactive

3. After Presentation

  1. Add in your meeting notes and new ideas
  2. Continue to store additional information
  3. Publish your Brain on the Web
  4. Send a BrainZip to attendees or invite others to your Brain with TeamBrain Services

    Great program and I see the value of the presentation benefits of PB. I missed how to bring individual slides into the PB. Is it just copy and paste and was there a way to resize the pics as you bring them up and finally someone asked can you coreograph your presentation so you can use an advancer mechanism to work your way through it like ppt..
    I have many letures in ppt and would like to use the best of both worlds to jump around but to also move through a predetermined order
    thanks

    The Brain software does not disappoint. Nor do the online training classes. I continue to recommend to others. At every class I learn something new.
    Very happy to have upgraded to pro version. The aspect of presentation by using Power Point slides is very slick!
